Signs of Hawaiian Life

GEOFFREY MARTIN / SPECIAL TO THE STAR-ADVERTISER
                                As campus antics go, the stunt that a bunch of island kids — all students at Yale University — dreamed up Feb. 10 has some obvious drawbacks. The high in New Haven, Conn., that day was 30 degrees.

                                From left are Chris Lee, Kento Tanaka, Michael Wong, Jacob Ly, Tomoe Mizutani, Sarah Oyatomari, Alexa Anderson-Rupp, Makana Williams, Liam Arnade-Colwill, Stephanie Spear and Lindsey Combs. According to Bruce Combs, Lindsey’s father, a witness to the photo shoot asked the group, “What are you getting hazed for?”
