Aloha students of the University of Hawaii System campuses:

Our apologies for the incorrect survey link in our first broadcast post to you.  We thank those of you who endeavored to share your experience with credit transfers within the UH System and promptly reported the link to the transfer survey as incorrect.

The University of Hawaii Student Caucus (UHSC) has posted the correct link below and again encourages you to take just a few minutes of your time, and help the UH Student Caucus continue working on this critical concern.  You will need to log in to your email account to access the survey.

The University of Hawaii Student Caucus advocates collectively for the interests and needs of students throughout the UH System, and provides a cohesive and unified voice before the UH Board of Regents, University Administration, Hawaii State Legislature, and other policy-making bodies.  Each campus student government selects two delegates to represent the campus' student concerns.  To learn more about the UHSC, visit our website at

The survey will be open until Friday, April 18, 2014 no later than 11:59 p.m.  On behalf of the UHSC, thank you so much for your time and participation, and encourage your fellow classmates to do the same! We look forward to continuing to represent you and the rest of our constituencies within the University.

Thank you.............Student Caucus leaders

Aloha e Nā Haumāna o Koʻolaupoko!

The Koʻolaupoko Hawaiian Civic Club raises funds annually to provide post high-school scholarship and financial aid grants to deserving students living in the Koʻolaupoko Moku.

In keeping with the mission and spirit of the Civic Club, one important aspect of the scholarship is the emphasis placed on volunteer community service in evaluating applications. Also, scholarship recipients are expected to complete a minimum of 20 hours of volunteer service in the 12 months following the award. 

Scholarship applications and supporting documents must be submitted by April 15. To access the application, go to this link:

This is for those of you who continue to feed the chickens on the back lanai!!!! STOP FEEDING THE CHICKENS! Especially if you DO NOT PICK UP THEIR CRAP!

Health and Safety Notice
The feral chicken problem has become a health and safety issue as they are intruding into our buildings and they are dropping a large amount of feces around our buildings. What has contributed to this problem with the chickens is that they are constantly being fed, often by students, faculty and staff.  We ask that you do not feed the chickens on campus because the resulting behaviors not only contribute to our chicken intrusion problem, but threaten the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and community members. 
Feeding the chickens has inadvertently "trained" them to seek food from humans, sometimes aggressively. Chickens have reportedly followed people into classrooms and offices while seeking to be fed. This learned food-seeking behavior is disrupting the educational mission of the college.  The chickens will survive without being fed by WCC students, faculty and staff.  Their survival will actually be enhanced by living in a healthier and safer environment and having a more appropriate relationship with humans.  But first, it is imperative that we decrease the population of feral chickens on our campus.  Please do not feed the chickens and let them find their food elsewhere; and help us to create a safer and healthier environment.  Thank you for your cooperation.
