PSCI instructor adds street experience to classroom

No one’s first choice for a class is 7:30 a.m. However, if you have to take a class that early, it is best to take it from a teacher who will keep you on your toes, or at the very least, one who will keep you awake. [More]

“Be My Guest”–Take your teacher to lunch

In spring, the office of First-Year Programs at HPU began an event called “Be My Guest”: new and transfer students could sign up to go to lunch with their professors for free. This program was a way of helping students to become familiar with each other and their professors. It was sponsored by Dining Commons, the Off-Campus Meal Plan, First-Year Programs, and Off-Campus Housing. This fall the program is back, but with a few changes. [More]

One day in the life of Hawai'i's only Elevator Driver

An elevator is an elevator. For the most of us. An elevator is a little home for Javier Fombellida. Nostalgic music drifts out of the palm-size cassette player in Jave’s gilded cage in the Blaisdell Hotel at 1154 Fort Street. Many of the passengers who daily use the elevator with golden framed mirrors and a crystal chandelier, feel as if they have traveled back to the early 20th century. The feeling persists even if they take the stairs, where black-iron grilles wrap around the elevator. [More]

Getting around O‘ahu: An easy-to-use guide

It’s your second day on O‘ahu, and you have a job interview. You write down the street address, go online to mapquest.com, and print out the directions. The first thing you notice is that you can’t pronounce any of the street names. You don’t get too worried because you figure that you could recognize the streets by their spelling. So you hop into your car and head out. You get lost; the street names are all spelled similarly and are unpronounceable, and your map does not show roads you needed to turn onto to get to your destination. [More]
