"Look for Turkey Day" with Leeward CC Student Goverment!

Hey Students! On November 7th, look for the Student Government table located upstairs in the STC, where you can speak to the President Raymond Banda and our personal Wai'anae Representative Raezheen Pascua about your different thoughts and/or concerns about the campus -- they’re here to listen and advocate for you.


The upcoming tabling event’s theme is “Look for Turkey Day” so look around campus for turkeys with different facts about both Leeward Community College campuses. Don’t forget to take a picture of the turkeys you find and upload it to Instagram, and don’t forget to tag Leeward SG to get a free prize!

Friday: Halloween Bash at the Boys & Girls Club

The Halloween Bash was accomplished by seven college students. They call themselves the Waianae Student Network. Inspired and determined they managed to coordinate a night full of excitement, laughter, and memories. It was their first big event that they planned and it was a learning experience for all of them. ~ By Sally Tolentino
