Kristen Tamagawa '21: Outstanding Senior in Business Administration
Kristen Mieko Tamagawa ’21 was named Pacific University’s Outstanding Senior in Business Administration. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in accounting with a minor in fine arts in May 2021. She is from Mililani, Hawai’i.
At Pacific, she was a member of the Business Club’s executive team, studied abroad, and played on the Boxer basketball team.
She also participated in Nā Haumāna O Hawai‘I Lū’au and Hō‘ike. In her senior profile, she said she danced, helped paint the backdrop, volunteered in the country store, and instructed a performance.
“I have high hopes that after the pandemic, that Pacific will retain the legacy of having the largest and best lū'au among colleges,” she said. “I will volunteer and keep in touch with Aunty Jana to give back to the university, since I received such a positive experience during my undergraduate years.”
One of her internships was with Deloitte, the accounting and consulting firm, and after graduation she plans to work in Deloitte’s Honolulu office.
