Student Life

Philosophy of Hawaii Student Suites Office of Residential Life

Our Residential Life program will provide students with a holistic living/learning environment that is conducive to development in all aspects of life. Hawaii Student Suites is committed to learning in and outside of the classroom in a community environment that celebrates diversity, coequal education, cultural awareness, and responsible citizenship. All activities, as well as the atmosphere within the community, should serve as a complement to our mission and overall philosophy.

Programming and Events

In an effort to ensure that our residents develop into mature and responsible individuals during their stay at Hawaii Student Suites, our Resident Advisors and Student Life Facilitators create/facilitate events that are in line with the Director of Residential Life’s programming philosophy. This carefully tailored programming philosophy has been developed around student development theory and trends in the field of residential life. The programming model is appropriately named L.I.F.E. and is based around the four categories:

  • Lifestyle/ Spiritual
  • Impact/ Community Service
  • Fun/ Physical
  • Education/ Academic

Resident Advisors and Student Life Facilitators on average, collectively produce over 60 programs a year for the residents of Hawaii Student Suites.
