It’s 10:50 a.m. Tuesday morning. Soon, students, faculty, and employees will stream from dozens of buildings on BYU campus over to the Marriott Center for an hour of insight provided by an esteemed individual from across campus, the nation, or even the globe. It’s time for the weekly forum or devotional.
But joining the weekly parade of students is not the only way to see or hear the addresses given at BYU. With the fourth-generation speeches.byu.edu website, which launched in July 2012, it is now easier than ever to find the text, video, and audio of devotionals, forums, and commencement addresses, with archives reaching back more than 50 years. Go online to find 1,500-plus addresses, from more than 650 speakers, available for free. Don’t know where to start? Try the 10 most-viewed speeches of all time.
