We caught up on news, shared some girl talk, and enjoyed a dinner of kalua pig, long rice, teriyaki chicken, haupia, coconut cake, and luau punch. We strolled around campus and explored a few blocks of Forest Grove, contracted sore butts on the bleachers, and stressed out during the Siva Afi fire dance.
The students from Hawaii make up twenty-five percent of the Pacific undergraduates. Because Hawaii is such a melting pot of cultures, the Hawaiian students provide diversity and a sunny spirit to a college campus. Not to mention the yummiest "care packages" from home!!
Having attended a small liberal arts college, I enjoyed visiting the Pacific campus. Makes me want to visit my own alma mater (Linfield College), which has practically doubled in size.
Great company, good food, and a fun show made for a fabulous Saturday.
