There are two seasons in Hawai‘i: winter (the wet season) and summer (the dry season). The University of Hawai‘i calls second semester Spring Semester, even though all year round flowers bloom, green foliage covers the mountains, and visitors and locals swim in the blue waters of the Pacific ocean. Our 2012 Spring Semester ASH students will escape the snow and cold on the mainland over the next few months. They will also miss the change of seasons or the “reawakening” of springtime, but here are a few things that are offered on campus this semester that might be just as invigorating:
The Genteel Sabai, a traditional Indonesian Randai drama produced in conjunction with guest teachers from Indonesia. Click here for more productions at Kennedy Theatre at UHM.
Musical concerts ranging in styles and performers from Chinese pipa virtuoso, Jang Jing to legendary mezzo-soprano, Frederica von Stade. Click here for more information the Department of Music concerts.
On-going scientific research in volcanology, geochemistry, petrology, oceanography, meteorology and other areas within the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology.

For the movie buff, free showings in many categories this spring: Bollywood Mondays, Korean Film Series, Japanese Films of the 1980s, Languages and Literatures of Europe and the Americas Film Series, Public Health Movie Nights, and of course Hollywood offerings at the Campus Center with 25 cent sandwiches, cookies, cotton candy and popcorn!
