Jennifer Fairbank Ms. Hawaii USA

MACom graduate student Jennifer Fairbank was crowned Miss Hawai‘i USA 2005 on May 16 by the 2004 queen, HPU’s Justine Michioka, who also was first runner-up the preceding year.


School names new head cheer coach

The award-winning cheerleading squads at Hawai‘i Pacific University are welcoming a new member to the team. Matt Parkey has been named the new head cheerleading coach.


Former Student in 'Arab Idol' trials

American Idol reject William Hung did an appallingly bad rendition of a song by Ricky Martin called “She Bangs,” and achieved instant fame, a record deal, an album, and fans who are going crazy over him. In contrast, last spring Hawai‘i’s genuinely talented Jasmine Trias trod a long, bumpy, and “pitchy” road every Tuesday and Wednesday nights on Fox, and despite having thousands of Hawai‘i fans rooting for her, she was bumped from the finals.


Rotaract escorts students to Tahiti

“We don’t want to go home! Can we come back here next year?” asked Waianuhea Lyau and Hanalei Fujimoto after the Rotaract Club of Hawai‘i Pacific University sent five teenagers to Mo‘orea in French Polynesia to participate in the week long Saga Painapo 2004 on July 24.


USO celebrates 2nd annual "Family Night"

Family, friends, and special guests of the United Samoan Organization at HPU all “got their groove on” at this year’s “family nite” fundraiser held at Farrington High School.


Getting real world experience

While college classes focus on theory, internships provide students with the real-world experience they need to determine if they like their chosen career and essential to their being able to get a job in it after graduation. No wonder HPU’s College of Communication requires them of all students. Upper-level division communication classes might be very hands on, but they can never replace actual work experience provided by an internship in the field.


Sea Warrior Center adds sofas, savories

Comfortable sofas, a pool table, and a variety of tasty new menu items and dining specials are all part of the upgraded Sea Warrior Center, just past the elevator in the lobby of the Blaisdell Hotel.


The fine art of student living

You are on your own for the first time in your life. You have nobody to cook for you, so what do you do? Living on Big Macs is unhealthy, expensive, and inevitably boring. Fortunately, HPU provides seminars at the beginning of every semester not only in cooking but also in college survival skills. Even better, they are free, open to everyone, and include pizza and soft drinks.
