Exams are over. Time to reconnect with family and friends, to enjoy the holiday gatherings, and to get energized for 2018. We look forward to seeing you in January if you are continuing your academic journey and wish you well if your plans take you elsewhere.

The Manu-o-Kū (aka the White Fairy Tern or Gygis alba) is a seabird indigenous to the Hawaiian Islands. The species is found across the Pacific, but their only known nesting areas in the main Hawaiian Islands are in urban Honolulu, and the species is protected as threatened by the State of Hawaii. Our campus Manu-o-Kū are living examples of Hawai‘i’s unique wildlife. There are 33 different areas across campus that terns have used for nesting sites.KCC_holiday-ecard2017
