Ohanais a pre-orientation retreat and excursion for multicultural first-year students. The 2015 Ohana was scheduled for Tuesday, August 25 through Thursday, August 27, 2015. For more information on the program see below. Information will be updated for the 2016 Ohana during the spring semester.
Ohana is a Hawai’ian word for family and at the University of Portland, creating family and community is an important part of our mission. Ohana focuses on the transitional needs of multicultural students. Led by current University of Portland students and past Ohana participants, the Ohana experience is a time to establish new friendships, learn about University of Portland and the Portland area, discover academic and cultural resources, and relax at a spectacular camp setting. Come join us for Ohana!
Please note there is a cost for the Ohana program. The fee to participate is $100 per student, which includes the entire program.
Please visit the Ohana 2015 Schedule for an overview of last year's pre-orientation experience. Ohana 2016 will be very similar to this schedule.
