On Saturday, February 25, 2017, academic and professional programs gathered on McCarthy Mall for the Mānoa Experience. This event is an informal open house to attract prospective students, their family and the community at large to learn more about the University of Hawai‘i flagship campus.
Under one tent were several health profession programs including Social Work, Office of Public Health Studies, Medical Technology, Tropical Medicine and the John A. Burns School of Medicine. This tent provided a one-stop-shop for youth interested in the health professions.
Not only did this event provide a fun atmosphere for people to discover the many activities done at UH Mānoa, it also brought many alumni together. Often, faculty and staff only gather for tedious meetings. The Mānoa Experience brings us together to share our programs and allow for casual conversations with the community and among our peers.
