When I applied to attend Brigham Young University, I felt fairly prepared for the change that was to come. The academics, the religious outlook, and even the harsh winters that my Arizona home knew nothing about. When it comes to the dating game, I often feel like my instruction manual accidentally got placed in a Monopoly box, so coming to BYU was a bit nerve-racking. From the day I applied, friends and family alike had their own reactions, but most of them settled around the idea of “marriage. I was going from single-high-schooler to married-college-kid, all within my first year of attending this school. Needless to say, I was terrified. And yet, a small part of me was actually excited.
Campus & Dating Safety Resources
A representative of BYU—a sprawling campus located in the heart of Provo, Utah, that is home to 32, students—called Mullis and told her that a counselor needed to speak with her. After a two-week investigation into her alleged misconduct, the office mandated that Mullis perform 10 hours a week of what was effectively community service. That part of the punishment was eventually dropped after the office assigned her to a new counselor, as was the mandate that she read a book on repentance.
The changes were met with widespread elation at BYU. Queer students took photos of themselves sharing celebratory smooches on campus in front of a statue of 19th century Mormon leader Brigham Young, for whom the school is named.

DATING, MEMORIZING NAMES, MUSEUMS, AND THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST
As BYU students, we tend to roll our eyes when dating comes up in stake conference or in Relief Society or Elders Quorum, but in reality all ears in the room perk up a little bit because everyone seems to think that dating can make or break how happy you are.

Foster had come out as queer just two weeks earlier — because she thought BYU had changed its policy. The Mormon church teaches that while experiencing same-sex attraction is not a sin, having same-sex sexual relations in essence, acting on said attractions is forbidden. Students had spoken out against the clause because they argued it unfairly banned behavior granted to straight couples, such as holding hands or kissing.

Calvin Burke says he has never been disciplined by Brigham Young University. But he says his Honor Code file, more than 70 pages long, is brimming with accusations: that he had a boyfriend, that he had a Tinder account, that in advocating for LGBTQ students he was in apostasy against The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which owns the school. But since BYU eliminated a ban on “homosexual behavior” from its Honor Code, Burke says he feels “freaking immense, immense relief.
It just feels surreal. In speaking with Honor Code Office Director Kevin Utt this afternoon, we’ve learned that there may have been some miscommunication as to what the Honor Code changes mean. Even though we have removed the more prescriptive language, the principles of the Honor Code remain the same. Another point they discussed, Cosgrove said, is whether a couple intends to marry.
A same-sex couple who declares they plan to marry would violate the Honor Code, because church doctrine only recognizes marriage between one man and one woman. That was the takeaway of another student, Lilly Bitter, a junior who said she has had a girlfriend for about six months. Some students reacted angrily to the perception that BYU may condone any romantic expression between same-sex couples. A group called SaveBYU formed last year after protests against the severity of student discipline in some cases, and revived their activity in the past week.
The group also said they removed a rainbow party hat from the head of the Brigham Young statue and taped copies of the Proclamation to the statue. Some students said they worried that dating and light physical affection with someone of their same sex or gender may not bring about discipline from the school, but that their bishops may still take action.
