Study hard, but have faith! Everything will work out. Don't worry too much. Work hard and believe that things will fall into place. They will.

How has your experience at BYU prepared you for the rest of your life?

Studying at BYU has given me the skills to think critically. This school has enlarged my knowledge of both spiritual and temporal things. BYU has given me the opportunity to meet and work with people with all sorts of perspectives. My time at BYU has taught me to work well with others and to set high goals and then work hard to pursue them. I am a better man for having chosen to attend BYU!
