Creighton Hosts Hawaiian Luau

Looking for a Hawaiian vacation but can’t afford the airfare? You are in luck.

You can experience island hospitality by attending Creighton University’s annual luau. Mark your calendars for March 19, from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the Skutt Student Center Ballroom for this year’s event, titled “A Hawaiian Island Vacation.”

In addition to fabulous and authentic Hawaiian food, visit famous historical sites, beaches, learn how to dance the hula, be part of the Tahitian, Maori poi ball demonstration, and watch the Hui O Hawaii members show off Polynesian forms of dance.

A Hawaiian caterer is flying to Omaha for this special event that celebrates the vibrancy and culture of the island. Although open to the public, tickets are required and can be purchased beginning March 13 or at the door. Visit www.creighton.edu/luau for more information.

More than 2.3 percent of the enrollment at Creighton University is students from Hawaii. Creighton University sponsors these events to celebrate the diversity of cultures and in the Catholic intellectual tradition, learns through dialogue, discussion and pursuit of truth through all its forms.
