Q:  What is the  Hui O Nani Hawaii Club all about?

A:  The Hui O Nani Hawaii Club, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary on May 5, is one of the oldest and largest organizations on campus. The club promotes and preserves the culture of Hawaii. Its focus on unity and family makes it one of our most engaging multicultural organizations. As of fall 2011, 236 students from Hawaii were enrolled at SU.
