More than 100 faculty, students and staff from the University of Hawaiʻi Maui College participated in a sign-waving event fronting the Kahului campus last week as part of the “Get Your Reg On!!!” campaign to drum up awareness and interest in the summer and fall class registration period, which begins on April 13, 2015.

“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 in a campus press release. “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.”
UHMC programs that came to support the event included faculty, staff and students from the following departments: Admissions and Records; Kabatak; Counseling; Dental Hygiene; Liberal Arts; and Hospitality & Tourism,
Chancellor Lui K. Hokoana was among the executive staff that also participated in the event.
