This ceramic tile mosaic at the entrance of the campus depicts an experience that happened on February 7, 1921. While visiting Hawai'i, David O. McKay participated in a flag raising ceremony with Elementary School children in La'ie. As he looked over the sea of children he envisioned an institution of higher learning here. In 1955 he returned for a groundbreaking ceremony attended by over 3000 people, which was the beginning of Church College of Hawai'i. 20 years later the name was changed to Brigham Young University-Hawai'i Campus.
