“Who’s going to wow us this year?” asked Lisa Doyle, assistant director of Student Life at the HPU club power breakfast last month at the Pioneer Plaza.

HPU RIOs, Registered Independent Organizations, include all the student groups, organizations, and clubs on campus, currently more than 90 of them. Club presidents and advisors gathered for a briefing by Student Life officials on current-year policies and procedures for active clubs on campus, including the hiring of a new Leadership Coordinator, Christopher Day, and the fact that all clubs must plan one event per month and schedule some community service activity each semester.
As each club was introduced, its president or advisor reported on current activities and announced plans for the rest of this semester. It was clear that many clubs are already well into their planning process, and that fall 2007 was shaping up to be an active semester for many students.

Here are some of the club activities shared:

· Accounting Club: Arranging office tours with local businesses.

· Chinese Student Association: planning an afternoon tea for October and a dim sum party with a movie in November.

· Danish Dynamite: plans a Paintball tourney in October.

· Hafa Adai (Guam): Had a welcome back barbecue Oct. 22; planning a donation drive and a Dec. workshop to introduce Chumoro culture to HPU

· Japanese Student Association:Plans Japanese culture and language lessons monthly.

· Polyglot Toastmasters: Meets Wednesdays, 2:30 –3:30.

· Proud to be Pinoy: The Filipino student association is planning cooking and language sessions for all major dialects.

· PRSSA: The Public Relations Student Society of America Plans a game night on November 8 and is working on a dining etiquette seminar.

· SAAC (Student Athletic Advisory Committee): Promoting all HPU athletics; sending two delegates to mainland NCAA conference.

· Students for Essential Equality: Planning National Coming Out Day in October; celebrating World AIDS day in December with a midnight walk across the windward campus.
