Want a piano?

Does anyone want a piano for department/program related purposes? I’m not sure the last time it was tuned, keys are all there and work. From what I can see, it’s in good condition, the only thing is the wheels that it’s on makes it hard to move. If you want to check it out, it’s at the Office of Student Activities (‘Iliahi 126). We are open from 9:00am – 4:30pm. Please email romyn@hawaii.edu for more information. Thank you!

 

 

OSA’s ID machine up and running!

Hi all, OSA’s ID machine and computer is up and running. Feel free to send students for student IDs and/or health badges, thank you! For any questions or more information, please email osa@hawaii.edu or call 808-734-9576. We are open Monday – Friday from 9:00am – 4:30pm for August.

ID machine down in OSA

The Office of Student Activities’ ID machine computer is currently down. We are working with CELTT and our vendor to get our ID machine computer up and going. We anticipate it will be ready around Aug 16. What does that mean? We are not able to make any new student, staff or faculty IDs (or health badges) at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience. What good timing!

But for students who have their Kapi’olani student ID, they are able to come to the office to get it updated and get their UPASS (if they are eligible or would like to purchase). Thank you all!

For any questions, please email osa@hawaii.edu or call at 808-734-9576. Our hours for August are Monday – Friday from 9:00am – 4:30pm.
