Comments on: Alumni share UH memories The magazine of the University of Hawai'i System Thu, 06 Sep 2012 21:11:28 +0000 hourly 1 By: Elaine Moon Matsuda Sat, 17 Jan 2009 01:12:32 +0000 I,too, will have fond memories of UH. I remember visiting Manoa Gardens after my last classes. Standing in line to register for my classes at Klum Gym and always trying to get to school early to find parking on Armstrong Street. I will be leaving the islands soon and working in Florida which will be my new home. I thank UH for giving me a bright future and my father for encouraging me to go beyond high school. Aloha Oe to all the people who I went to classes with and to my professors. Class of 1982.

The old quarry with its ponds to find algae for fishtanks and the long trek up and down the wooden stairs often times so tiring and making us late for classes across campus at Crawford Hall

Farrington Hall, now gone, dark and theater-like, with long, long lectures.

Henke Hall, when it was the last building on campus before the keawe trees and Manoa Stream….

• Shooting pool at Campus Center instead of history class and or lab.
• Getting drenched from the Manoa showers since the umbrellas couldn’t handle that kind of volume.
• Standing in long lines at Klum gym to register for classes and not knowing I literally had to race to each class to get the card
• Camping on Cooke field for football tickets.
• Getting my car ticketed and towed for parking in the wrong zone.

• After rain storms in the old quarry parking lot and having to float/steer my VW bug over the big ponds in the quarry parking lot.

Mahalo for reminding me of all the great memories!

By: June Segundo Sat, 13 Dec 2008 03:10:32 +0000 Hello!

That was a nice slideshow. What do I miss?
I miss the East West Center cafeteria and sitting room at the lobby level.
I spent a lot of time there conferencing in small study groups with friends.

It is now fully enclosed and reserved for conferences.
I attended a Philosophy conference there recently and was quite surprised by the changes.

I’m glad the Japanese gardens in the back are still there preserved in timeless beauty.

By: Spirit of UH Wed, 10 Dec 2008 21:12:58 +0000 Mahalo everyone for sharing your thoughts and memories. I am an old university (just celebrated a hundred years on this earth) and it’s hard for me to remember all that’s happened over the years – there are so many of you that passed through my halls. Each memory that you share helps me recall the part I played in your lives. Hopefully I’ve helped you in some way to grow intellectually, emotionally and physically. Thank you for reminding me what’s important and why I exist. Ekomomai everyone, welcome home…

By: Khontt Wed, 10 Dec 2008 19:34:54 +0000 I remember all of the awesome and talented people I met at KTUH and Ka Leo, who’s creativity was stifled by CAPS advisers. I won’t donate a dime to UH until that organization receives a major overhaul (and purge – BonnyJean and Dusterhaus excluded).
We had a part-time adviser from KCC fill in for Hartwell for a couple weeks and I learned more from him than I did in the 4 years that I worked with CAPS advisers.

By: Kerry Hocker Wed, 10 Dec 2008 17:13:31 +0000 I dormed at Frear Hall back in 1983 when it was an all girls dorm. My best friend was studying to be a nurse and she had to be at her clinicals at 6 a.m. So, I used to wake up early every morning and walk with her all the way down Dole to get her car and then she would give me a ride back to the dorm. I remember walking out at 5:30 in the morning and feeling that warm breeze and looking up at the beautiful sunrise. We’re still best friends after 25 years. I live in California and she stayed in Hawaii and we still talk to one another at least 3 times a month.
