Aloha Graduates,

As we enter finals week, I wanted to take a moment to congratulate you on completing not only your degree but probably the most difficult semester of your college career. We are saddened and disappointed that this was not the end we had hoped and planned for. Nevertheless, we would like to celebrate your accomplishments.

Ho‘omaika‘i – Celebrating the Journey

In the upcoming week, several of the units on campus will recognize their graduates with celebrations, ceremonies, and messages from faculty, staff, alumni, and students. Please check the commencement site for the list of celebrations across campus.

Social Media

Although there is no in-person ceremony this semester, it doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate. Post your photos and videos with #ManoaGrad and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Video Messages

On Monday, May 18, 2020, video messages from Provost Bruno, UH Alumni, and Mahalo Messages from students will be posted on our commencement site.

Congratulations on a job well done, graduates!
