Dear 100 Hour Board,

Where are the largest Institutes of Religion located? I'm looking at options for non-Utah/BYU schools and was curious about where the largest ones outside of Utah/Idaho/Arizona are... My guess is U of U, Utah State, Idaho state schools, and Arizona state schools are the biggest, but who comes next? Is this listed anywhere?



Dear you,

The largest Institute is Utah State University. Other than that, I haven't been able to find any information, but I assume that California has fairly large institutes. I also know that Calgary, Alberta has a pretty large enrollment.

If you're excluding institutes in ID/UT/AZ and South America, the top attending institutes (with attendance >100 last term) are:
Buena Vista VA
Edmonton Alberta
Las Vegas NV
Laramie WY

And that's it. But most (if not all) universities in the US have an institute program attached to them, and they usually have at least 30-70 attending. So you can still have a good institute experience no matter where you end up.
