Talkcampus Is Here!
It’s tough being a student and Counseling Services knows that you don’t always want to talk to us about how you’re feeling. That’s why we’ve launched TalkCampus. An app where you can talk with other students from around the world if you’re struggling and worried about your mental health. Your student email address will give you free access, just download TalkCampus from the app stores. It’s a place just for you, no staff, no fear of judgement, just instant ongoing support. Check out the webpage to learn more about this opportunity to connect with others today!
As you start another leg of your academic journey, it's important to stay up to date with the latest University of Hawai'i news, health & safety guidelines, and important deadlines. Be sure to bookmark pages such as the academic calendar, updated COVID- 19 guidelines, and the news & events calendar so you don't miss a thing!
