Nursing, Oceanic Institute in HPU service learning efforts

As the HPU Service Learning program faculty begins its second year of participation in the Systems of Service in Island Societies grant, we pause for a moment to reflect on our service to the community and our contributions to the academic learning of our students.


Hungry? Broke? HPU can help

For four years, the HPU Food Bank has held an ongoing drive for food to assist those in the HPU community who need temporarily help.


Riding with HPD

Around 6:30 p.m., Police officer Glen Freitas, 30, pulled out from the Alapai Police station located at 801 South Beretania St. I was riding shotgun doing research for Kalamalama.


Poker and online gambling catch on

In 2003, Chris Moneymaker, an amateur, rose from obscurity to win $2.5 million at The World Series of Poker at Binion’s Horseshoe Casino in Las Vegas. His victory sparked the interest of amateur poker players everywhere. Maybe the notion of “anybody” winning catches the public’s attention. Over the past two years, many people have tried to be that “anybody” by playing online at such sites as Party, Poker, and Paradise

Outdoor Living

Flying across water! Is jet skiing breathtaking or obnoxious?

The wind and water rush by so fast they take your breath away. It’s like a roller coaster on waves—you bump up off the face of a wave and fly for 30 or 40 feet and splash down to do it again, and again. What can be more fun than flying over the open ocean in a jet ski at top speed?


Adventure, solitude - Camping offers both

Imagine it’s early in the evening and you and a small group of friends are trying to make a campfire. You collect dry woods, put everything on a pile, and then hope that the wind isn’t too strong to blow it out immediately. You are successful and now gather around the fire. Everyone unpacks their food—and soon, the typical smell of barbecue hangs in the air. For dessert, you all brought marshmallows, crackers, and chocolate. You hear the surf break on the cliffs, the wind in the trees, birds sing, taste the salt in the breezy air, and see the sun setting over the ocean. It’s a perfect day out in nature, at a campground on the northeastern coast of O‘ahu.
