"I am pleased to welcome you to this special campus, whether as a new or returning student," said Brigham Young University Hawaii President Steven C. Wheelwright, as almost 400 new Seasiders — most of them transferring from other universities — started Winter Semester on January 7, 2009.
"I extend our love and appreciation to you on behalf of the President's Council and the dedicated faculty and staff here at BYU-Hawaii. We are grateful that you are here, and look forward to many wonderful learning opportunities with each of you," said the president in the first issue of the Ke Alaka'i Daily. Starting this semester, the new publication is delivered online, Monday-Friday, as a PDF-file attachment.
