HPU’s first College of Communications Major Fair was held on Friday, April 13 on Fort Street Mall. The event was designed to educate and inform students about the types of communication majors offered at the University and to introduce new majors that will be offered next school year.
“ I was surprised to see that so many students were interested in the communications programs here at HPU,” said Kaylee Noborikawa, an HPU journalism major. “Or it could have been the free pizza!”

Communication clubs at the event included PRSSA, IABC Akamai Advertising, and The Press Club. These clubs offer students a chance to get involved with the career field of their interest.
Local businesses also participated in the fair to recruit students into their company for internships and jobs. Clear Channel Communications radio station Hot 93.9 broadcast live at the event, and joined members of the Korean Times, Honolulu Advertiser, Star Bulletin, the Pacific Council, and the Life Foundation to give students insight into career opportunities and offer advice to those entering communication careers.

“ We want to bring in and connect outside career resources to HPU academic resources,” said Director of Career Services Lianne Maeda, who helped to coordinate the event. “Eventually we would like to have this type of fair for all the different colleges at HPU.”
