BYU-Hawaii Marks 60th Anniversary

Last month marked "the 60th anniversary of Brigham Young University–Hawaii and part of the celebration took place during Spirit Week 2015, held from February 6-12," according to a press release on the university's website.

"Kicking off Spirit Week was the third-annual Flag Raising event where current and former BYU–Hawaii students get the chance to raise their country’s flag at the university’s iconic Flag Circle."

BYU-Hawaii is owned and operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Many of the university's students come from South Pacific nations.
