(Honolulu, HI) -- Hawaii Pacific University has a new nickname and a new logo. School officials have unveiled the university's rebranded nickname as the "Sharks." A new logo of a fairly menacing-looking shark was also introduced. Athletics officials say the new brand will capture the strength and spirit of the men and women that compete on HPU sports teams. Hawaii Pacific was known as the Sea Warriors for over three decades before the nickname switch.
