Chaplain's Corner
with Reverend Dale Burke

Welcome new students, and welcome back returning students for another semester at HPU! The opportunities that lay before us this term are endless, and today I want to encourage and inspire everyone to do two things: Get involved. And stay in touch.

The quality of a university education goes beyond the boundaries of the classroom. What happens outside the lecture halls deepens the learning experience and frames education in the context of the world around us. Participating in student activities, co-curricular events, and internships adds value to your education by connecting it to the community and to relationships that can last a lifetime. But you must participate; you must get involved.

How do you get involved in campus activities? First, you have to know about them, and that means you need to stay in touch with the heartbeat of the University—Campus Pipeline, to which everyone has access through their computer. Kalamalama, is another sources of information about campus events and organizations. And Student Life constantly posts signs on the mall and distributes flyers to keep you in touch with all that is going on.

Our spiritual connections are as important as our co-curricular ones! All of the local churches, temples, and synagogues are eager to welcome you and make you feel at home. Pipeline lists local houses of worship, and you are welcome to a non-denominational chapel service every Wednesday, noon, at Warmer Auditorium downtown and every Sunday, 7:30 p.m. at the Hawai‘i Loa campus. There will be singing, an inspirational message, and refreshments—a good way to get off to a great start! Have a terrific semester!
