Ka Lā is Hawaiian for “The Sun.” As in, enlightening. As in enlightening our readers. We aim to inform, educate, and (do our best) to entertain, as well. A noble cause.
Through a paper and website, Ka Lā is the official news outlet of the Student Media Board of Honolulu Community College. It is lovingly cared for by some crazy but dedicated, bright, intelligent students.
The website strives to publish news of the campus, the community and other bits its readers may be interested in. The newspaper (printed version) is published once a month during the Fall and Spring semesters, The website is updated every two weeks or so. And alongside whatʻs printed it hosts stories, photos and video. Some content is web exclusive.
The website is hosted on WordPress, using the Poseidon theme version 4.9 and looks best on a phone or tablet. So-so on a laptop. The paper and website are funded by student fees.
And if you get real curious, and want to know more about us email us at firstname.lastname@example.org Or stop by the newsroom and say hello, We are located on campus in building 2, room 115.
Ka Lā invites letters/comments/critiques; ideas for articles; upcoming events; and advertising. We reserve the right to edit them if we decide to publish.
If you’d like to write or photograph for us, please drop us a line. We need all the help we can get.
Student writers are responsible for content. We stand by our stories and photos – we got a 40+ year veteran newsman as an advisor, so nobody’s worried.
