Spring 2020: March Issue 3

Dearest Vulcan,

We’re here once again with half of the term behind us and half of the term ahead. I know I’m not the only one reeling from the speed at which this semester is going by; so take a deep breath, roll up your sleeves, and get down to both the business and the busyness.

My hope is that this month’s issue might provide a little relief. An impressive mix of the latest coverage featuring our community’s performing arts has taken center stage between these pages, from UH Hilo’s annual International Nights program to the upcoming “Conversion of Kaʻahumanu” production. We’ve also got a few follow-up articles from some previous stories around campus, including a new banner spotlighting our student body’s diversity, as well as the fate of the Women’s and LGBTQ+ Centers.

Finally, we’re excited to announce that this April 3 from 3 to 4 p.m., Ke Kalahea will be hosting our Spring Media Symposium Speaker event on Library Lanai. Join us as we broadcast journalist Sherry Bracken and UH Hilo’s Chancellor Bonnie Irwin for an interview on Bracken’s Island Conversations radio series. Tell your friends, and your friends’ friends, and we’ll see you there.

E mālie,
Take it easy,
