UHSAAA 2014 Annual General Membership Dinner Meeting

UH alumni favor 25th anniversary celebration


More than 1,700 alumni answered our call in a recent online survey and voted favorably for a 25th anniversary “Silver Scholars” alumni reunion. UHAA surveyed alumni who graduated between 1987 and 2011, and 75% of all respondents said “yes” or “maybe” when asked if they would attend a reunion event 25 years after their graduation from a University of Hawai‘i campus. Most (62%) were interested in a concert/live entertainment event. Nearly half (49%) of all respondents graduated more than 10 years ago. Here are highlights of the survey:
