Students looking for a sense of diversity on the campus of George Fox University may now experience culture through attending the Hawaii Club.
Created as an outlet to educate students on Hawaiian culture and to encourage the spirit of Aloha on campus, Hawaii club has experienced great success since this school year.
“We do all sorts of activities,” says sophomore nursing major and Hawaii Club Secretary, Angele Mai. “We’ve held potlucks, luaus and have even met to teach our friends Hawaiian phrases.”
The club’s largest event this year is tentatively scheduled for Martin Luther King weekend as club members plan on taking a day trip together to nearby hot springs.
“This is just one of our bigger events,” says Mai. “We really try to meet once a month though.”
While the title “Hawaii Club” may initially seem to exclude students who are not natively Hawaiian, Mai reassures all students that the invitation to Hawaii Club is open to whoever may be interested.
“Absolutely everyone is welcome to join,” says Mai. “This community is very chill and fun to be around. We come here to learn from each other through social interactions and activities.”
