Campus has a 9-11 memorial site


Honolulu Community College hosts a memorial to victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
Twin five-foot-tall steel towers support a plexiglass American flag. Attached to the back of the memorial, in a sealed vessel, are a golf-ball-sized piece of World Trade Center rubble and a charred hunk of the Pentagon’s roof. The golf-ball-sized piece came from the rubble of the World Trade Center. It was donated to the college by a New York resident who wished to remain anonymous.
Designed by a sheet-metal instructor on campus, Danny Aiu, the entire memorial was built with donated funds and materials and volunteer labor. It is made of gleaming polished steel and plexiglass and was placed beside a 3-ton piece of the Berlin Wall.on
The memorial is in remembrance to those who were killed, including Christine Snyder, who had attended classes at HonCC. She was killed when United Airlines Flight 93 crashed in Pennsylvania.

The memorial is located near the rear of Building 2, behind the bookstore and Student Life and Development offices.

Deep-fried manapua comes to HonCC

The cafeteria at Honolulu
Community College reopened for business on Tuesday, and judging by the lunch-time lines, it was a welcome addition to the campus scene.
The new vendor for the cafeteria is Honolulu Kitchen, which has its original restaurant in Waipahu featuring 40 different flavors of its original deep fried manapua.
In addition to the manapua, the menu bentos, plate lunches and a variety of other food choices.
And the servers were super friendly. It’s good to have a full-service food supplier back on campus.

They got it at GET IT

The two-day GET IT — Get Involved Today — event on campus last week introduced hundreds of students, new and old, to some of the on-campus and off-campus resources available to them at Honolulu Community College.

Representatives of more than a dozen campus groups and off-campus businesses and non-profits were on hand.
