Hui o Hawai‘i Welcome BBQ
Every summer, Hui o Hawai‘i hosts a beach barbecue on O‘ahu to welcome new students to Oregon State University. At the barbecue, Hui o Hawai‘i officers, students, and families get to meet one other, play games, and eat local food. Students from Maui and the Big Island also participate in this welcoming celebration by attending smaller Hui o Hawai‘i luncheons or dinners on their islands.
Aloha Pizza ReceptionHui o Hawai‘i invites Hawai‘i and Polynesian students and families to join us for pizza at one of the dining centers on campus. This event is usually held the Wednesday before school starts, so most students come and meet each other for the first time.
Welcome Back BBQThe Welcome Back BBQ is held the Saturday before school starts. Upperclassmen, underclassmen, and their families come to meet new people, play games, and eat free food.
