Swedish club’s ‘80s Party

Leather jackets and purple dresses—what do they have in common? They are fashion statements from the 1980s. If you saw a bunch of people dressed in 1980s fashion in Waikiki recently, it was probably not a time-and-space distortion from an episode of the Twilight Zone. It was, the HPU Swedish Student Association’s annual ’80s Party. [More]

TIM students help HBTA raise scholarship funds

by Mickey Kromman-Jensen

A handful of HPU Travel Industry Management (TIM) students helped out at this year’s Hawai‘i Business Travel Association (HBTA) annual scholarship fundraiser at the Hawai‘i Prince Golf Course in Ewa Beach. At the Oct. 27 golf tournament, the TIM students volunteered as greeters, dispatchers, and hole-in-one witnesses.

“We really appreciate HBTA’s effort in supporting our education,” said Hyuliya Hasanova, a TIM senior from Bulgaria. “By volunteering we not only help a good cause but also establish good relationships with the industry people.”

Two HPU students have been awarded with HBTA scholarships since the award program started in 2005.

The HBTA is the local chapter of the National Business Travel Association (NBTA), which represents the interests of more than 2,000 corporate travel managers and travel service providers worldwide. HBTA is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to protect, promote, and advance the knowledge of the corporate travel professional.
