UH Hilo Vice Chancellor Kristen Roney has announced that the spring 2021 semester will be mostly online with a few exceptions. The spring 2021 schedule will include information on which courses will require an in-person component.
Despite dance instructor Kea Kapahua’s years of training and teaching, moving her dance classes online was not something that came naturally. But she’s up for the challenge this fall, fearlessly teaching her students completely through virtual platforms.
Seeing the need, officers of the UH Hilo pharmacy college’s Phi Lambda Sigma chapter organized a volunteer quarantine service.
A social media campaign was launched this morning on Hawai‘i Island to help normalize wearing masks. Using the hash tag #ourkuleana (responsibility), the campaign encourages people to post a black and white selfie wearing a face mask.
At the recent COVID-19 testing events held on the UH Hilo campus, pharmacy students assisted with collecting screening paperwork, checking vital signs, managing traffic flow, and sanitizing all resources between each person.
Online order and pick up will be offered at the Campus Center dining room, Hale Kehau dining room, and Munchies. Contactless in-person payment at the register is also available via an app-generated barcode.
The event is open to UH students and employees, as well as the public.
