On Saturday, February 25, CJS participated in the Mānoa Experience, an annual event on the UH Manoa campus. It is a chance for members of the community and prospective students to get a glimpse of the various opportunities available at UHM. As the event is designed to showcase the diversity of UHM’s academic programs, nearly every department and campus organization made an appearance.
CJS joined the rest of the SPAS community to showcase UH Manoa’s academic strength in the Asia-Pacific region. CJS displayed pictures of our recent art exhibition featuring Mr. Akihiko Izukura as well as information regarding CJS seminars, academic funding, and study abroad programs.
