Driving past UH Maui College April 6th you might have noticed over 100 UH Maui College faculty, students and staff gathered along the W. Ka’ahumanu Avenue entrance. As part of the “Get Your Reg On!!!” campaign, they waved at passing cars and held signs to show their school spirit and help promote summer and fall class registration, which starts April 13th.

“Right now there’s still financial aid available, and we wanted to get the word out about registration a week before it starts so people apply and get that financial aid paperwork underway,” said Cathy Bio, Vice Chancellor of Student Services. “But it was also an opportunity to show our school spirit – I think everyone driving by could see how enthusiastic we are about our students and the college.”

Among the UHMC programs that came to support the event were Admissions & Records, Kabatak, Counseling, Dental Hygiene, Liberal Arts, and Hospitality & Tourism as well as executive staff including Chancellor Lui K. Hokoana. The event was broadcast live by Pacific Media Group, with hosts Trance and Tre Tre from Da Jam 98.3. Listeners to the broadcast were encouraged to honk their horns while driving by, and many did.

“Our students really felt the spirit of the community supporting us,” said Francine Ching, Student Life Coordinator and one of the event’s organizers. “It’s still going on too, I hear the photos on Facebook have gotten over 6,000 views.”

The class schedules for summer and fall semesters are available to view online at maui.hawaii.edu/classes, and prospective students can apply online at maui.hawaii.edu/apply.
