We welcomed haumāna to campus with a lunch prepared by staff. The fresh poi was milled on campus and our lau lau was prepared by staff. New haumāna learned to navigate their campus with the assistance of their returning peers. The week was filled with social activities which allowed haumāna to get to know their peers and kumus.
