The school year coming up: new students are introduced to college life, and seniors are finishing up their academic journey. Ka Leo wanted to know why students chose to attend the university.
“I’ve always wanted to come here since I was little and I traveled to Hawai‘i every year with my family. They have a really good marine biology program here.”
“I chose to come here because I enjoyed my visit here and I got a football scholarship.”
Sociology or Kinesiology
“I grew up here in Hawai‘i and I always wanted to go to UH so I’m just kinda making a dream come true. Plant science is a pretty big thing out here, we have a lot of indigenous species… The university here studies all these rare trees so I wanted to be a part of that program and hopefully learn more about plants in Hawai‘i.”
“I wanted to stay in-state because I’m planning on getting a job on this island… It’s a lot about knowing who you know and relationships and connections. I didn’t want to go out of state and come back not having any of those relationships.”
