What is Kukui News?
It is Your Guide to a More Successful Semester.
It is your personal resource to access answers to hopefully most, if not all of your questions that may come up during the course of this semester.
The purpose and goal of the Kukui News is to help navigate you towards your own success as a student. When you succeed, we succeed and vice versa. With that being said, use any or all of the information as much as you would like to help you in your journey as a student at Hawai’i Community College.
As you go through the Kukui News, be sure to check out the special resource, “Your Guide to a More Successful Semester” listed below. Use it’s information as well as the rest of the information in this newsletter as often as you’d like or need. If this resource has helped you in any way, please share with a peer who may need it just as much or more so than you.
Hereʻs to a prosperous and productive year.
