(KSL News) This week BYU is celebrating Homecoming. And today, President Gordon B. Hinckley of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints opened up the week with a devotional.

President Hinckley reminded students about the importance of being honest and chaste. He also encouraged them to help others.

He then congratulated the university's business school on it recent ranking of number one in the nation. "Number one in regional rankings among all business schools in America. Think of it. What a unique institution this is," President Hinckley said.

He also recognized the entire student body for another honor. "You came in first out of 366 colleges. You are the most "Stone Cold Sober" student body in America," he said.

BYU Homecoming ends on Saturday when the football team plays the Air Force Falcons.
