From getting married and becoming a father to losing his father and graduating summa cum laude, Justin Ioane said BYU–Hawaii provided him with a meaningful academic experience. Ioane’s wife, Serena Dugar Ioane, described his time at BYUH as an amazing journey.
Eve Gonzales, a senior from Texas majoring in accounting, said every year her family goes Christmas caroling. “Even though it’s embarrassing, it’s memorable because of that. It’s probably my favorite tradition.” Gonazles said her family used to live in Hawaii, and her two brothers learned to play the ukulele. “We usually carol with my brothers playing.”
The live action remake of "Mulan," released Sept. 4 on Disney+, was met with excitement and anticipation by members of the BYU–Hawaii ohana wondering if the new movie would live up to its animated predecessor. While some BYUH students from around the world shared they enjoyed the new version, others thought Disney should have stuck to the original 1998 version.
