There are few traditions as beloved – or as fun – at Chaminade as the Pacific Island Review.
Every year, hundreds come together to watch members of the University’s student cultural clubs take to the Sullivan Family Library Lawn to showcase their talents in music and dance with high-energy performances. It’s an evening punctuated by good food – and lots and lots of good cheer.
And this year was no exception.
From sunset well into the night on October 26, dozens of students from the Hawaiian, Micronesian, Marianas, Tongan and Samoan cultural clubs donned traditional garb and took to the lawn to perform.
Along the way, they got plenty of applause and encouragement from the big crowd, which included students, members of Chaminade’s faculty and staff as well as attendees from the community at large.
The Pacific Island Review is annually one of Chaminade’s biggest events.
And this year, it got some buzz in the press.
In the ramp-up to the big day this year, the Samoan Club got a chance to perform on KITV morning news. And the Star-Advertiser attended the event to capture hundreds of photos for an online gallery.
Miss it? Don’t worry, Jackie Martinez ’23 created a video recapping the exciting event.
