Introducing Hawaii to the New CP Students
Editor-in-chief: Dr. Sandra Wu-Bott
As we have a large number of new students arriving at HTIC in Spring 2022, I would like to start off this newsletter with a warm welcome and a heartfelt aloha. Being in Hawaii and away from Japan with all of your family and friends cannot be easy. Hopefully this newsletter will ease any anxiety and help start off your time at HTIC in an excellent manner. To begin this newsletter, a student has produced a video introducing HTIC to our new students. There are other articles and videos showing outdoor activities that are located on Oahu to include beaches, sunsets and a hike. Some activities were conducted specifically as a mentor/mentee activity so new students are not on their own going to unfamiliar places. Included in this newsletter are other social activities and HTIC events that will show that even though you will be attending classes and focusing on your education, there are opportunities for fun activities. You can also see a student’s experience living in Waikiki. Who knows, maybe some new students will take up the challenge at the end of this newsletter and join the newsletter team! You will be more than welcome. Again, welcome to all the new students and here is to you achieving your educational goals and furthering your academic career here at HTIC.
