meal featuring traditional staples kalua pig, chicken long rice, teriyaki chicken, poi, haupia, coconut cake, and punch.
The meal will take place from 4:30 to 6 p.m. in the University Center (Washburne Hall), and the show will follow at 6:30 p.m. in the Bill and Cathy Center. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for the show.
A Hawaiian General Store in the Stoller Center will feature specialties flown in from the islands. Fresh pineapples, cookies, chocolate covered macadamia nuts, leis, jams and jellies, and other treats will be available Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and at 5:30 p.m. before the evening show.

The Lu`au is a collaborative effort of Pacific students, including NHOH members, faculty, staff, local community members, businesses, and family members at home in Hawai’i. Many students’ parents come from the Islands a week in advance to make leis and put together decorations.
NHOH was founded in 1959 with 16 students. By 1962, 60 student club members represented the eight islands of Hawaii. The club has recently opened membership to anyone interested in learning more about the Hawaiian culture and now boasts more than 200 members. The students actively share their Island traditions by performing various functions both on and off the University campus.
Students from Hawaii comprise 25 percent of the student body at Pacific University. The Lu`au is produced and presented by the Pacific University student Hawaiian Club as a fundraiser for community service projects and club activities.
