UH Hilo Happenings (December 8-14, 2019)

UH Hilo Happenings (December 8-14, 2019)

Aloha UH Hilo,

It’s the last week of classes and we hope you’re all doing well!

Thursday, December 12, is the last day of instruction AND the last day withdraw from all classes this semester and earn “W” grades for classes. If you’re considering withdrawing from all classes, check in with an advisor to see how a “W” grade might affect your academic progress. Also, if you’re receiving financial aid this year, be sure to check in with the Financial Aid office in SSC E-101 before withdrawing from classes.

Gearing up for finals? Be sure to check out UHHSA’s Oh Hell Week, kicking off tonight, Sunday, December 8 at the Campus Center.

It’s about that time of the semester when students may begin to feel the pressure of stress and responsibilities, so be sure to contact Counseling Services to schedule an appointment or take advantage of Walk-In Wednesdays, happening this week from 1-4pm in SSC E-203. No appointment necessary.

Have a great week!
