UHAA–Colorado Chapter

The Colorado Chapter is open to all alumni living in Colorado, those who attended the University of Hawaiʻi, friends of the University of Hawaiʻi, and folks who have a deep love for Hawaiʻi. We meet several times a year in the Denver Metro area to share our Aloha Spirit and to engage in meaningful ways to both support and create a presence for the University of Hawaiʻi. Each year a large number of new students from Colorado enroll at the University through the Western Undergraduate Education (WUE) program which provides a significant reduction in yearly tuition. As a result, the Colorado Chapter holds a yearly Student Send-Off event to help new students prepare for their fall semester. Additionally, since our football team plays at Colorado State University or the University of Wyoming, our members are usually at these games cheering for and supporting our Warriors.

Anyone missing that Aloha Spirit is invited to join us.  We hope to see you at one of our future events—E Komo Mai!
