The Office of Student Services at HTIC has launched a new website for students (http://htic-oss.weebly.com/). The site's home page is divided into four sections: Admissions, Academics, Student Life, and Career.

Under "Admissions," prospective students can find information about HTIC, the application process, tuition & fees, financial aid, and how to enter the United States. "Academics" provides information on the different types of study programs and courses that HTIC offers, including the College Preparatory Program, the Liberal Arts Program, and the Discover East Asia Study Abroad Program.

In the "Student Life" section, current students will find useful tips on living in Hawaii, including information pertaining to banking, transportation, health, housing, and activities. Finally, the "Career" section is a great resource for students preparing to transfer to a four-year university or work after graduating from HTIC.

Please check out this new website and feel free to contact a staff member in the Office of Student Services if you have any questions.

The Office of Student Services held another Transfer Workshop for students in October to help HTIC graduates through the transfer process. Even your first term as a Liberal Arts student is not too soon to start thinking about what you want to do after graduating from HTIC. Students should start early in researching schools, talking with advisors, and establishing a post-graduation plan.

The following are recent HTIC alums currently attending the University of Oregon and Minnesota State University, Mankato.

As these students continue to work hard to achieve their dreams, their advice for current HTIC students is to "study hard!" One student offers the following words of wisdom: "Think carefully about your next step. Try to choose the school that fits your career. If you have time between your HTIC AA-degree graduation and the start of your BA/BS program at your next school, think about doing an internship to gain experience."

The History of the Hawaiian Islands class (HIST 284) went on a field trip to downtown Honolulu last week to explore both historical and contemporary Hawaiʻi politics and history. They first visited ʻIolani Palace to explore the Hawaiian Kingdom past and witness this sacred site that was home to the Aliʻi. After taking a tour of the Palace, the next visit was to observe part of a current and on-going court case, one that is highlighting the fact that state legislators should live in the area that they represent. Both of these visits brought to life the course work that we have been studying this summer session.

College Preparatory Program Core 5 teacher, Mr. William Gosline, took his class on a field trip on August 27 to visit one of Oahu's largest Hawaiian heiau, Ulu Po. Tucked away just off the highway near Castle junction, this hidden cultural treasure overlooks the Kawaihae marsh. Students took many photos (of course!) but also learned something about the history and flora of traditional Hawaii. The students were pleased to find that kalo (taro) is still being grown at this site in lo`i, as well as other important staples such as uala and ulu. Though the trip was brief (and Wataru was eaten by mosquitoes) it provided an important glimpse for the students into the world of ancient Hawaii.

This past weekend (6/1/14), HTIC had two teams that ran in the Honolulu Ekiden 2014. These teams, made up of six students each, ran the total length of a marathon (26.2 miles), from the base of Diamond Head at Kapiolani Park, eastward along the coast, past popular Hanauma Bay, and as far as famous Sandy Beach before turning back.

One of the HTIC teams, "The Cauliflowers," distinguished itself by placing 4th out of 163 teams and 1st in the category of College/University teams with a time of 2:55:33 (2 hrs, 55 mins, 33 secs). Congratulations Cauliflowers!!

Congrats as well to the second HTIC team (appropriately calling themselves "HTIC"), which placed 21st out of 163 teams with a time of 3:28:32 (3 hrs, 28 mins, 32 secs).

Congratulations to all our runners!

The "Cauliflowers," pictured here, are (from left): Shunsuke Nakamura, Yamato Watanabe, Atsuki Kurosawa, Sohei Fujita, Atsuo Shinohara, and Yuya Fujiyoshi.
