Night security tight on HPU's downtown campus

HPU offers various evening courses at the downtown campus as an advantage for students who have busy daytime schedules. Most of these start at 5:15 and end after 8 p.m. Any metropolitan area after dark is likely to be a little scary, and downtown Honolulu is no exception. But HPU has arranged security for the downtown campus to ensure the safety of students and faculty attending night classes.

ITO on teaching diversity

The Intercultural Teachers Organization (ITO) at HPU sponsored a student panel on Nov. 19 at the Sea Warrior Center for International Education Week 2004. The theme was “An Overview of Education in Different Countries.” Topics included curriculum/course offering, options after completing compulsory education, and focused on five countries, represented by native students: Florian Rouch, France; Miranda Lam, Hong Kong; Sachiko Nakamoto, Japan; Supreeda Chotikul, Thailand; Jenny Lundahl, Sweden. ITO President Masaki Seo, from Japan, was the moderator.

Imagine hiding behind a log in Jurassic Park as a herd of Gallimimus dinosaurs run toward you and leap over your head. Or imagine standing in one of Godzilla’s massive footprints, or trying to flag down Lucy, your girl friend, with a cute little penguin during one of the 50 First Dates. These movies, and more, were not filmed in far-off lands but just 30 minutes away from HPU’s windward Hawai‘i Loa campus at Kualoa Ranch in Ka‘a‘awa Valley.
