HONOLULU - University of Hawaiʻi president David McClain has designated the first Friday of each month during the academic year, September to May, as "UH Athletics Pride Days" and encouraged all members of the University community to wear their campus colors, or the colors of one of the athletic teams at UH Mānoa or UH Hilo.

The designation follows a proclamation by Governor Linda Lingle on February 28 that all State departments may designate one day each month as "UH Athletics Pride Days," with employees encouraged to wear acceptable attire that promotes UH athletic teams.

To promote UH Athletics Pride Days, all Rainbowtique stores and UH Bookstores systemwide will offer UH employees and students with a valid ID card a 10 percent discount on all regular priced apparel the last weekend of each month (Friday to Sunday), beginning on August 29. They will have a choice of either receiving the 10 percent discount or donating the amount to the Athletics department. The discount ends the weekend of April 24-26, 2009.
