Location and Culture:
Beginning in 2020, students will be based in Hilo, the largest town on the Big Island. Hilo Town is a small, laid-back town on the eastern coast of the Big Island, and offers access to natural and cultural resources across the island, as well as quick travel to the other islands. The influences of Polynesian and Asian cultures is clear, especially in the cuisine.
Anticipated projects will focus on sustainability-related issues.
