3) University Radio Hilo

"Updated 11/24" University Radio Hilo has been an online and AM radio station for the past few years.  In October 2007, URH filed an application with the Federal Communications Commision (FCC) to achieve FM status.  We now have three years to raise the funds to purchase an antennae. This antennae will allow URH and UH Hilo to broadcast over the FM waves from Laupahoehoe to Volocano.

4) Food Service Contract

"Updated 11/24" In December of 2008 the current campus Food Service Contract will be expiring.  UHHSA is communicating with students to find out what is wanted in our campus Food Service Contract. UHHSA has also created a Food Service Committee dedicated towards gathering input from the student body and relaying it to the Vice Chancellors Food Service Committee. At 1:00 pm on Wednesdays students are gathering to discuss this contract and other food related issues on campus and in the community. Discussions are held on the lawn in front of the Library Lanai.

5) Sustainable Campus

"Updated 11/24" UHHSA acknowledges the need to promote a sustainable and energy independant campus.  We are working with UH-Hilo administrators to make sure that we move toward that goal. UHHSA purchased the materials to construct wire recycling bins all over campus. We plan to have them maintained by RISO's on campus for fundraising purposes. For more information please contact us via email, phone or stop by the office.

6) Financial Aide Director

The UH Hilo Financial Aide Director, Jeff Scofield asks, "What do the students of UH Hilo think about Fiancial Aide?" Please email Jeff any responses to this question and he will get back to you.

7) UARC/ARL Navy Contract

How do you feel about the United States Military being a part of the University of Hawai'i System? The Board of Regents vote was in favor of UARC/ARL 7-1-1. (Seven in favor, one opposition, and one abstained) Here are a couple of websites that do have information regarding UARC/ARL.
