A spectacular show, led and performed entirely by Pacific students, will follow at 6:30 p.m. and includes traditional Polynesian dances, music and other entertainment.

The Lū`au is a large collaborative effort of Pacific students, including more than 300 NHOH members, as well as their parents and family members, university faculty and staff, and other local community members.
Students from Hawai‘i comprise about 14 percent of the undergraduate student body at Pacific. The NHOH student club began in 1959 and is open to anyone interested in learning more about the Hawai‘i culture.
The Lū‘au is the primary a fundraiser for NHOH activities and community service events. For more information, please visit pacificu.edu/luau.
