MONSON_medium“If you are a single college student, I ask you to make participation in institute a priority.  Married students and other young adults are also welcome and encouraged to attend.  Think of it.  Friends will be made, the Spirit will be felt, and faith will be strengthened.  I promise you that as you participate in institute and study the scriptures diligently, your power to avoid temptation and to receive direction of the Holy Ghost in all you do will be increased.  Divine favor will attend those who humbly seek it.  That is a promise which I leave with you.”
– Thomas S. Monson

– Henry Ford*
