Participating in student media is a great means for students to voice themselves, build their resumes and gain experience in the world of journalism. Students who are interested need no experience; however, they need to be motivated and willing to work with deadlines.

Student Government All fee paying students are regular members of the Student Government of Honolulu Community College. (See also Tuition and Fees). The student senate represents the student government or ASUH on most College, Faculty Council, and University councils and committees. It is through this important student organization that students play a prominent role in the governance of the College and the University System. Student Government provides interested students the opportunity to learn and develop leadership skills. Student leaders learn parliamentary procedures and individual and group decision-making and interaction techniques. For more information contact the Student Life office.
