The public is invited to The Mānoa Experience - University Preview Day on Saturday, February 25, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa.  The annual open house attracts more than 1,000 people to the flagship campus of the UH System. 

Attendees will include school-aged and high school students, current UH Mānoa students, transfer students, in-state and out-of-state prospects, educators and other guests.

Over 180 academic programs and student services will be represented by faculty, staff and current students in tents along the tree-lined McCarthy Mall. Attendees can enjoy interactive hands-on activities, demonstrations and displays that showcase the vast opportunities at UH Mānoa.  The Office of Admissions will also be open for prospective students to check on their application status or to pay tuition deposits.

New this year at the Campus Center Courtyard will be the Art + Flea urban market, sponsored by the Ka Leo campus newspaper and UHM Student Media Board.  Local businesses will be selling clothing, crafts, jewelry and more.

UH Mānoa is consistently ranked a "best value" among U.S. colleges and universities.  Students and faculty come from across the world to take part in UH Mānoa's research, diverse community, nationally ranked Division I athletics program, and opportunities unique to an island location in the Pacific.  The National Science Foundation currently ranks UH Mānoa 71st among the top research universities in the U.S.

“The Mānoa Experience provides an excellent opportunity for the community and prospective students to interact with our faculty and staff,” said Ryan Yamaguchi, Associate Director of Admissions.  “This open house is designed to highlight the exciting programs that the University has to offer and how it impacts our community.  Because of events like the Mānoa Experience, we saw an increase in the number of incoming freshmen from Hawai‘i in Fall 2016.”

Added Jan Taniguchi, Associate Director of Admissions, "We are very excited to showcase UH Mānoa and invite everyone to visit.  Take a tour of our campus, residence halls, Warrior Recreation Center, School of Nursing's Translational Health Simulation Center, and Engineering Research Labs.  There’s a lot to do and we hope the community will join us in this UHM-azing opportunity."
