The class selected for the fall program at the center will be the second to return to the Holy Land facility after a six-year hiatus.

Eighty-eight students will be chosen, according to the university.

The first class — made up of 44 students — arrived at the center in January. BYU spokeswoman Carri P. Jenkins said 88 students will be there for spring term and another 88 for summer term.

In the past, Jenkins said, 170 students were picked to attend fall and winter semesters and 150 for spring and summer terms.
