Our description for the iPhone store:
Hawai'i Pacific University (HPU) is located in Oahu, Hawai‘i,
and is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
This application was developed with our HPU community (alumni, students, faculty, and staff) in mind with financial support (partial grant) from Swebdevelopment.com and the University, and leadership from our MBA student workers and HPU Institutional Advancement staff.
In order to create a sustainable initiative we are charging a small fee which will allow us to maintain this project.
Our unique downtown Honolulu campus setting now has a map. HPU invites you to view our custom map which includes real time bus routes. Each building used by HPU is tagged and has a photo of the building, which includes a list of what is offered in each building.
In addition, we have included a ‘donate now’ button and a web links button (which includes mapping of our other campuses). Engaging our alumni is the number one priority. We have included events, contact us, and the Alumni Global Network portal (for alumni to view a password secured directory, etc.). We have a social media section including our own YouTube channel, LinkedIn with global alumni chapter subsections, and HPU Facebook pages.
Once the iPhone application is available in the iPhone store, we will post the link here.
Do you want to Skype in to the event? We will be accepting five reservations for global participation from HPU Alumni. Please e-mail our Executive Director Bonnie Hilory to reserve a space. Please send your Skype account, so we can pre-test the connection.
