Of Pillars and Cornerstones–Homecoming at BYU 2012

Homecoming activities are in full swing on campus. Yesterday members of the campus community had the opportunity to attend the Homecoming Opening Ceremonies at the Marriott Center. The theme of Homecoming this year is “Of Pillars and Cornerstones” and our celebrations center on the stately Karl G. Maeser Memorial Building on the south end of campus. This silent sentinel has watched thousands of students enter Brigham Young University to study secular topics bathed in the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ. It honors the spiritual architect of Brigham Young University, Karl G. Maeser. Enjoy these historic images of the Karl G. Maeser Building.
