Graduating soon? Can’t wait to step out
into the real world and put college and homework behind you?
You will be a Hawai‘i Pacific University Alumni. The
question is, what are you supposed to do without Campus Pipeline
and your HPU e-mail account? Try the Alumni Global Network.
Soon after graduation, you will no longer
be able to access e-mail and information about HPU through
This is where
the Alumni Global Network comes into the picture, and it’s
loaded with lots of cool features.
The Network helps you keep in touch with
friends from school, even if you don’t remember their
last name. For example, you can search the Network directory
by graduation year, first
or last name, city, even major.
“While approaching graduation,” said Kris Smith,
Director of the Office of Alumni Relations, “all you
can think about is that you have no more classes to attend
and the excitement
that you are finally free to step out into the real working
world. Give yourself about three weeks, and you are really
miss it. Most of all,” she continues, “you are
going to miss your friends. The Alumni Global Network is an
that you can easily stay connected,” says Kris Smith,
Director of Office of Alumni Relations.
You will also be able to network with alumni worldwide, said
Smith. If you are planning a vacation out of the country, you
will be able to connect with fellow alumni to find the best
hot spots and cheapest hotels. Who knows, maybe even they will
let you stay with them!
Jason C.H. Lee, (B.S.B.A. ’95), the HPU Taiwan alumni
chapter coordinator, was quoted in HPU Today as saying: “In
the 21st century of the global village, the HPU Global Network
allow us to interact with fellow alumni worldwide.”
Looking for a job? You can post your resume online or search
job opportunities with about 50 participating companies linked
with the Network. You can also ask other alumni about opportunities
in their local areas.
It is exciting that alumni and corporations can both benefit
through career networking using the Alumni Career Center,” said
Jennifer Baker, (M.B.A. ’99) in the same HPU Today article.
The Network will keep you updated with HPU events and also
register you to participate if you wish. If you want to know
be there, you can check the list of registered guests.
A special feature is the option to send E-postcards to friends
and family featuring pictures of Hawai’i or even images
of Intercultural Day.
Graduating seniors can’t sign up before graduation, but
after it, they shouldn’t delay using this free-for-life
service of HPU. After graduation, all you have to do is log
on to: www.alumni.hpu.edu and follow the directions. Then,
a great life!
