About

Welcome to the blog for ʻOpihi, UH Hilo’s new brand for student retention and graduation. We communicate relevant information and possibilities to help students succeed and thrive at UH Hilo.

‘Opihi are limpet found along Hawaiʻi’s rocky shorelines and known for their tenacity to remain “stuck” to rocks, despite crashing waves and rising tides. Its resilience is the reason the ʻopihi was selected as the brand for student retention and graduation.

ʻOpihi is managed by the interim associate vice chancellor of Student Affairs, and falls under the Student Success Leadership Team, responsible for managing enrollment at UH Hilo.
