Aloha from President Wright

This is a special edition of Kalamalama, because it’s my opportunity to welcome our new students to their first semester at HPU and our continuing students back for another academic year. Beginning a new semester can be both exciting and challenging. One challenge you might face is connecting with people outside the classroom. You’ve already taken one important step in meeting this challenge: you’re reading the student newspaper. But to make sure you have many chances to meet students, staff, and faculty, we’ve also put together a number of events coming up in the fall semester. I’d like to tell you about some of the highlights. [More]

Chaplain's Corner
