MANOA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - As a way to positively welcome University of Hawaii at Manoa students back to school for the fall semester, 85 new banners are being displayed around campus.
"We needed a range of seeing what Manoa meant, the reasons people came here, what it means to them," UH Manoa Chancellor Robert Bley-Vroman said. "So we think of the banners as a way to let people express that feeling they have about Manoa."
The banners are part of a year-long marketing and social media campaign called "#FacesofManoa," and the goal is to promote school pride.
The students, alumni and staff displayed on the banners were randomly selected with testimonials of what they like best or why they chose to attend UH Manoa.
