Home of the world's tallest sea mountain and the world's most active volcano. Former seat of a royal kingdom. Birthplace of surfing and the hula. Hawaii is the youngest state of the union and one of the youngest geological formations in the world . But perhaps Hawaii's most unique feature is its Aloha Spirit: the warmth of the people of Hawaii that wonderfully complements the Islands' perfect temperatures. There are six major islands in Hawaii: Kauai, Lanai, Oahu, Molokai, Maui, and Hawaii's Big island. You'll find each island has its own distinct personality and offers its own adventures, activities, and sightseeing opportunities for every prospective student.
