The scandal has brought lots of attention to BYU's honor code, which also asks that students stay away from tea and coffee (the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or the Mormon Church, frowns on caffeine) and adhere to strict clothing and grooming standards (no beards for men; only one piercing per ear for women). It forbids cursing as well. Also not on the list of permitted behavior: homosexual relationships.
BYU isn't the only school in the U.S. to have such rules for students. Surge Desk has found five other colleges with strict rules about student behavior.
1. Patrick Henry University
At this Virginia school, which is aimed primarily at students who were home-schooled, girls can be called in for a talk if a bra strap shows. Students are expected to seek parental "guidance and approval in romance, courtship and marriage decisions." There's no "social dancing" on campus, and alcohol and tobacco use are also forbidden.
2. Bob Jones University
Bob Jones University famously banned interracial dating until 2000, when then Gov. George W. Bush stopped by the school during his presidential campaign. Chaperones must be present when men and women are socializing -- including on dates -- according to the school. BJU also takes a hard line on Abercrombie & Fitch and Hollister, saying that the stores "have shown an unusual degree of antagonism to biblical morality. Therefore, BJU asks its students not to patronize these stores, wear their clothing or display articles containing their names or logos."
3. West Point
It's not only the religious schools that have strict rules for students. At West Point, some Friday nights have mandatory study hours, and students aren't allowed to sit on the same piece of furniture as someone of the opposite sex.
Another Christian school in Virginia, Liberty, which was founded in 1971 by the Rev. Jerry Falwell, forbids students from watching movies rated R or NC-17. Forget about having sex: There is a three-second limit to hugs, and kissing is off-limits on campus.
5. Pensacola Christian College
At Penscaola Christian College in Florida, women must wear dresses or skirts at all times -- no pants or shorts allowed. Men and women are not supposed to see each other while swimming. "Lights out" is at 11 every night, even on weekends. According to one former student, magazines like Cosmopolitan and Men's Health are forbidden because they are considered pornography. Perhaps the strangest part: There are gender-specific stairways and elevators, even some sidewalks. Anything "occult" is forbidden, as is pop music.
