When using social media
The Do's of Social Media
Remember that digital is FOREVER. Once it is online it's permanent! Be Careful!

Pictures of others breaking the honor code can cause serious damage to you, your team, and BYU, even if you are not the one participating.

Don't criticize officials or others teams.

Don't post immodest pics or other inappropriate material -- even if it doesn't seem "that bad"
What Not To Do...
“[New Media]…– like any tool in an unpracticed or undisciplined hand can be dangerous. The Internet can be used to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ and can just as easily be used to market the filth and sleaze of pornography.

"Social networks on the Web can be used to expand healthy friendships as easily as they can be used by predators trying to trap the unwary."
“Any act committed against someone joining or becoming a member or maintaining membership in any organization that is humiliating, intimidating or demeaning, or endangers the health and safety of the person.”
Equipment and Locker Rooms

- Equipment Rooms are not stores/gift shops
- You are responsible for your equipment and gear
- Locker rooms are not your dorm room or apartment
- Things DO get stolen at BYU!
You have a lock on your locker – use it!
The only way to prevent theft is to lock your valuables.
If everything doesn’t fit – take things home, throw them away, or give them away.

Locker rooms are not for visitors, former-athletes, or family members.
President Cecil O. Samuelson
Regardless of why each of came to BYU we all committed to live the Honor Code.

"Recommit to living and acting - even thinking and feeling - as you have agreed to do in accepting an appointment as part of the BYU community. Your honor is important."

"There are many ways in which BYU can tower above other universities—not simply because of the size of its student body or its beautiful campus—but because of the unique light BYU can send forth into the educational world. Your light must have a special glow, for while you will do many things in the programs of this university that are done elsewhere, these same things can and must be done better here than others do them. You will also do some special things here that are left undone by other institutions."
Spencer W. Kimball
