No new clubs participated; however, two groups were allowed
to set up a table to see if they could generate any student
interest. The Latter-Day Saints Student Association was one.
“We’re just here to get students started,” said Carol Jaros,
assistant advisor to the LDSSA, a worldwide religious organization.
The Cultural Diversity Club was another group allowed to participate
along with the Math/Science & Engineering Club which was reinstated
as a club this term.
Students looking for some adventure, there was the Dive Club,
which started last year. Joakim Hjelm, who graduated last spring,
enjoyed it so much he now volunteers his time helping out on
dives, “It’s good fun. We go everywhere,” said Hjelm. “You can
find diving spots all over the island.” Students who want to
join the fun can log on to campus pipeline for information.
Students looking for some different adventure could check out
the Fantasy Gamers booth. “We set up role playing for different
games, Dungeons & Dragons or Lord of the Rings, and others,”
said club member Oneika Williams.
On the more serious side was the Debate Club. “It’s a great
way to learn and it helps with public speaking,”said Shaun Tateishi,
Debate Club president. The Debate Club participates in workshops,
brings guest speakers to HPU, and judges high school debate
tournaments. For more information, contact Shaun Tateishi at
