The Full Story
The ‘Ewalu Club at the University of Nevada Las Vegas is more than just another Hawai'i Club. It is a student organization created to spread and perpetuate the Aloha spirit and Polynesian culture within the Las Vegas community. With our motto, 'Ewalu Mana'o Ho'okahi Wahi E Hele Aku, which translates to “Eight Perspectives, One Destination”, we seek students from every Pacific Island but also extend a warm welcome to students from all walks of the Earth. Through our community service activities, fundraisers, socials, and other events, our objective is to share our traditions and way of life in order to build strong relationships between the Polynesian student population and the local community.
Our mission is to provide a family and a home to students attending university for the first time and to help them engage with other students whether they be first, second, third, or fourth year students to collectively create friendships for life.
Our vision is to educate and spread Hawaiian and Polynesian culture through hula (dance), ʻai (food), and the overwhelming spirit of aloha that knows no boundaries to the University and the greater Las Vegas community!
