Students share how attending BYUH exceeded their expectations academically, culturally and spiritually
Peyton Seiuli, a junior from Idaho majoring in cultural anthropology, said she did not know about Polynesian cultures before she came to BYUH.
“It was amazing to learn about other cultures, and it is my major now. I also met my husband here. I have never thought I would marry a Samoan.”

She explained, “We have to explore, research and obtain knowledge by our own efforts with little guidance from professors.”
She said at the beginning, it was difficult for her to get used to it. “In my first year, I struggled, but soon I adjusted to it and loved it.”

Dalaichuluun shared that soon after her arrival at BYUH, she started to serve in the temple. “I felt that I have to be more obedient and virtuous to be a good guardian of the sacred ordinances."
"I feel so honored to wear my temple worker name tag every time. It feels like it is my other mission,” Dalaichuluun added, “Temple is more beautiful inside and full of meanings and teachings.”
