Alumni Week 2021 Recap

Thank you to everyone who took part in this year’s virtual Alumni Week, which included a variety of livestreamed events culminating in a virtual Alumni Lū’au celebration. This year, we celebrated Classes ending in 0,1, 5 and 6, including our newest alumni from the Class of 2021. An invitation was also extended to the rest of our more than 30,000 alumni around the world to share in the experience.

Along with a virtual fitness challenge, Alumni Week featured the PAA Award Ceremony, as well as on-demand content with tours of the Punahou campus, cooking demonstrations and more. Members of our community also were able to order and pick up a special lūʻau meal to eat at home.
