BYU’s World Wide Web


As the international community’s focus turns to Utah for the 2002 Winter Olympics, BYU’s University Communications has launched a new Web site highlighting BYU’s connections to more than 65 countries across the globe. The site’s interactive map allows viewers to select a region of the world to learn about BYU’s ties to countries in that area.

In just a few mouse clicks, a viewer can learn about alumni internships in Japan, professors improving village life in Ghana, the ballroom dance team’s China tours, the number of BYU students from the Ukraine (16), and the four members fo the men’s vollyeball team who hail from Puerto Rico.

With thousands of facts like these, the site gives journalists and other interested viewers easy access to information on BYU’s efforts to make the world its campus.
