PHOTO ESSAY: UH Hilo International Nights 2018, celebrating the many cultures on campus
International Nights is a special time each year when UH Hilo students celebrate, in song and dance (and a poem this year), the many international cultures represented on campus.
The University of Hawai‘i at Hilo hosted the annual International Nights on Feb. 23 and 24, 2018. Each year, the UH Hilo International Student Association produces a two-night show that features dance performances from the many different cultures and countries represented at UH Hilo. International Nights is a long-standing tradition at the university that spans over three decades, and is a favorite event on campus among students, the community and visitors.
Photos are arranged in order of appearance during the two-night event. Click photos to enlarge.
