What is there to do in Hilo?

People ask us this question every day, and the answer is easy. What are we doing in Hilo? How about building community, nurturing lifelong friendships, and uncovering life’s mysteries while pursuing education in such fields as:

  • Hawaiian language
  • Hawaiian studies
  • Pharmacy
  • Administration of justice
  • Aeronautical sciences
  • Business administration
  • Environmental studies
  • Marine science
  • Conservation biology
  • Healthcare leadership

Far from the glare and cacophony of the big city, you can hear the planet’s heartbeat and feel its pulse as we open our minds to possibility.

As we open our hearts to each other.

Thank you for opening your arms to us. Your support is transforming lives, communities, and the planet.
