BYU-Idaho Students Protest Honor Code Enforcement

About 200 protesters marched on the campus of Brigham Young University-Idaho's campus Wednesday, seeking reform in how administrators enforce the Honor Code.

The Honor Code is a set of rules students at BYU in Provo, Utah, and BYU-Idaho, which is Rexburg, must follow in order to maintain academic standing at the universities, which are both owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The code restricts conduct prohibited by the church, including sex outside of marriage, drinking alcohol and using drugs.
