My best Mānoa moment was NSO (New Student Orientation) week where I got to meet some of my closest friends from all over the world.

How can we forget Aloha Bash? It's a time when students are able to relax and have a great time. Mānoa always chooses the best bands to perform. Being in the first row dancing and singing to Katchafire was by far my best Mānoa memory!

I really enjoy all of the help that is offered. Sometimes the college life can be tough, especially if you major in the sciences, but I know there will always be help.

I love that Mānoa is the perfect sized university. It’s large enough to have a wide range of opportunities available, yet small enough to find groups of individuals that love the same things I do.
