“Poly Day” as it is commonly known, is a celebration of the Polynesian culture hosted by the Polynesian Student Alliance at the University of Washington. This popular event showcases authentic Polynesian and Pacific Islander (P.I.) music, dance and regalia from the islands right at the heart of the UW campus. There will be workshops for high school students that will cover the university admissions process, keynote speakers, Polynesian history and more! Around noon, the members of PSA will host the signature celebration of “PolyDay,” in honor of their heritage, on Red Square for all to attend. This annual event aims to voice the presence of a lively and active P.I. community on campus and motivate younger generations of P.I.’s to pursue higher education at the UW.
