Share Your Shaka

#shareyourshaka FEED

To show the aloha spirit while we are practicing social distancing, the HPU brand channels are launching a social media campaign with the hashtag #ShareYourShaka. The contest is open to current HPU students - but we hope all HPU ‘ohana will spread aloha with the hashtag.



How you can participate.

  1. Take photos of yourself, your friends and other HPU students showing your shaka in your dorm rooms, while you are participating in your online classes, or even screenshots of face-timing a friend. Feel free to get creative!

  2. Then spread the word by sharing a photo or video on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter with the hashtag #shareyourshaka

  3. Watch the #shareyourshaka community grow and encourage your friends to participate.

  • Prospective Students, Current Students, Alumni, Faculty & Staff: Because you will help unite the HPU ‘ohana. 

  • Current students: You will be entered to win a DJI Osmo Pocket video camera, gift cards, swag, and more!
