Graduation Ceremony

University Alma Mater

The University's alma mater is traditionally sung at each commencement ceremony and at other appropriate events.

Hawai'i Pacific University Alma Mater

Amid the towers of the city
grows a University tried and true.
Ohana, warm and friendly,
bloom in colors green and blue.

Hawai'i Pacific, your spirit is grand.
We'll flaunt your colors
from this fragrant land.

Our sharks reign over the oceans.
They catch the wave and sun,
and carry them to all of us -
to strengthen us as one.

Hawai'i Pacific, your spirit is grand.
We'll flaunt your colors
from this fragrant land.
