The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa School and College Services (SCS) provides information, services, and various outreach and recruitment activities for prospective students, and works with staff from high schools and community colleges worldwide to promote and encourage students to pursue higher education. Through campus visit tours, SCS offers opportunities for groups and individuals to learn more about programs and services offered at UH Mānoa. Assisting SCS at campus visits are "Student Ambassadors" who are current UH Mānoa students that offer their view of the college experience.
