The semi-annual event kicked off at 10 a.m. and finished with the local band Natural Vibrations at 5 p.m. Its main objectives were to allow students to explore the different clubs on campus, from Latino’s Unidos to honor societies. Janelle Pinpin, freshman, said that “It’s a great way to get involved and interact with people who have the same interest.”

At 12:45 p.m. HPU’s national award-winning Cheer and Dance teams performed to open the University’s 40th Anniversary celebration. Athletic Director Jill Ward introduced the coaches of the fall sports and the athletes introduced themselves.

After a speech by Dr. John Kearns, HPU’s Chaplain Rev. Dale Burke presided over a moment of silence for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Climaxing the festivities President Wright spoke of HPU’s 40 years of accomplishments.

Before singing happy birthday HPU, and cutting the 40-foot cake, Manibog announced the winners of the booth decorations contest. Third place went to the Japanese Student Association; second went to TIMSO (Travel Industry Management Student Organization); and winning first place was the International PAL Association.
