Hello everyone! Can you believe we are already in July?
Well, we can- and we’re excited! Best part is that it’s all because of you!
On August 21st, we kick off Welcome Days! These four fun-packed days are the best ways to start the year of college. It is a great way to meet your fellow incoming new students, returning students, professors, and members of the HBU staff! All are invited to come and join us for this great experience!
If you like and follow these pages, keep an eye out for contests as well as introductions to some of the student leaders for Welcome Days!

We look forward to seeing you there!
SOAR 1 Just finished and we are stoked for the incoming freshman. Here’s a brief glimpse of District 6 SOAR 1 and your fellow leaders Carissa, Kris, Maria, Aahana, and Michael. Hope the rest of you are ready for SOAR! #hbu #SOAR14
I hear that there are friendly people at HBU, but I am still scared about transitioning to college. For a good portion of my life, people haven't been too kind to me. I know it's because of the way I look. Unfortunately, not all people are like God--they look at my appearance and judge me wrongly before they can even get to know me. I just feel so alone sometimes. Can you promise me that I'll be able to make friends when I get to HBU?

Guaranteed you will make friends. IF you are willing to put yourself out there! There are a lot of friendly people in HBU campus. There is just one thing you would have to do! Just walk around with a smile and just say hello. Here’s a quote from the movie “We Bought a Zoo”.
“All it takes is 20 seconds of courage”
You are not defined by your looks. If people judge you because of how you look, why surround yourself with those kinds of people?
According to the bible, you have be “fearfully and wonderfully made” created and molded by God. Don’t worry about making friends because you will make them :) all it takes is a simple “Hi” :)

Hey everyone, It’s Anthony!
I know this a bit late, but a few weeks ago, two of the biggest annual events on campus occurred!
The first event was the BYX Island Party, several of the SOAR Leaders attended, showing support to one of the fraternities of the campus. Various activities were there: from a foam pit, to a giant game of limbo, to dancing on a hand-built dance floor! Greek Life is one of the best ways to get plugged in on campus! HBU has 3 fraternities and 5 sororities, each offering amazing groups of people you’ll want to get to know and maybe call brothers or sisters!
The second event was the annual HBU Spring Fling! Normally held in front of the Hodo Residence College, this year took an interesting twist as it occurred at Lawrence Park by Belin Chapel. We had two of the local food trucks, The Waffle Bus and Coreanos, come out to do business! Both were absolutely amazing! Other attractions there were the photo booth (complete with props!), mechanical bull, and DJ. It was a great time for the community to come together to spend time in fellowship with students and staff before finals rolled around.
Other BIG annual events that occur on campus are: Welcome Days (designed specifically for you FRESHMEN to have four fun-packed days before the start of your first semester!), Homecoming Week, Winter Formal, Husky Revue, and Husky Hunks! Each event is extremely exciting and each has its own flavor to add to the HBU experience.
Hope y’all are having a great summer! I, and the other SOAR leaders, can’t wait to see y’all!
P.S. SOAR 1 begins in 16 days!!!
Show your school spirit and where HBU colors at Soar; I know I, Ramon Madden, will!
