TGIF events relieve stress
by Becky Nelson, Student Life editor

How would you like to face a Sumo wrestler, get thrown onto a Velcro wall, win a comedy contest, or dunk your “favorite” professor in a tank of water? The HPU Office of Student Life and HPU student government--ASHPU--is giving you the chance.

Every Friday students, faculty, and staff are invited to “Thank Goodness It’s Friday,” a time to enjoy these and other fun, free events such as listening to music on the Mall, learning self-defense, climbing a rock wall, or getting a “stress-buster” massage. Also featured this year: MTV’s “I Bet You Will”— a tasteful game of truth or dare, and the ever-popular dating show Singled Out. Everyone who comes will also have chances to win movie tickets, HPU logo wear and Coca-Cola products.

TGIF is a great way to meet other students, relax, and get involved at HPU. TGIF events are held every Friday from noon to 4 p.m. on upper Fort Street Mall on the downtown campus. Three times each semester TGIF will move to the Windward Hawai‘i Loa Campus. See the schedule below.
