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!

With an eased financial burden, I was better able to focus on my studies and maintain the high GPA required of my scholarship. I was also able to strengthen my resume and became stronger applicant for my future endeavors, such as research and graduate school.

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.
