Review from HUA Student
“I just finished my Masters at HUA (distance learning) and the experience was wonderful.Due to my day job and ongoing internship at another college, HUA accommodated my needs and helped me finish my Masters on time. I highly recommend HUA to all those who are interested in pursuing studies there.”

Message from Youth 
“HMEC, as usual, was a wonderful conference this year. We had representatives from so many temples coming to share best practices and to talk about what works and doesn’t work in their temples (in various areas of temple operation). Lots of inspiring words were said, lots of promises were made. Now it is up to us to actually keep those promises, to actually follow through on our inspiration. It is up to us to actually listen at these conferences more than just talk. So let us hope that people take home some things they learned, and implement the changes they see need to be made. This is the key to strengthening our community.”
