A Morningside featuring presentations from two prominent student leaders — the student body president and the Student Honor Association president — will be conducted Aug. 28 from 7 a.m. to 7:50 a.m. at the Carillon Bell Tower field located at the north end of campus near the Marriott Center.
In keeping with tradition, Student Body President Brian Bowers will read “Horton Hatches the Egg” and apply the principles in the book to BYU students. After Brian’s remarks, Thomas Chock, the Student Honor Association president, will continue to build on themes found in “Horton.”
“The Morningside teaches about the Honor Code, and I think it helps the students feel a sense of community,” said Jen Pingree, director of the Morningside.
The theme of the Morningside is integrity and the Honor Code at BYU. The Morningside will help students understand what the university expects of them concerning commitment to the Honor Code.
A light continental breakfast will be served at the Carillon Bell Tower immediately following the Morningside.
