    • A Message from the Student Association PresidentTo the Graduating Class of 2013,My fellow graduates, I would like to start off by saying congratulations to each and every oneof you! We have reached a very important milestone in our lives and should be extremelyproud. We should not take this accomplishment lightly because we have endured whatmany could not. We all share a bond that only college graduates can understand. We havebraved the countless hours of reading, lectures and labs. We have survived the all night cramsessions for mid-terms and finals that left us blurry eyed and feeling worse than any hangover.We have battled through the constant barrage of reports and term papers that seemed neverending and we have won! Even though many times it may have seemed that we were allalone in our suffering, we were not! Take a look around you and you will see those brothersand sisters who have shared your pain and now share the triumph. You were never alone!I want to take this opportunity to share with you a few things that I have learned alongthe way. It is your duty to take all the knowledge and wisdom you have gained from thisexperience and do great things not only for yourself, but for your family and your communityas well. Remember to always take the time to pass on what you know to others while nevermissing the opportunity to learn new things for yourself. Also, when you are faced withthose difficult situations that life throws at you, think back to what you have been throughand use that same determination to push yourself forward. Most important, never forget toappreciate those who have helped and supported you along the way because they are yourbiggest fans and the ones who truly care about you.Finally, I’d like to leave you with one of my most favorite quotes. “Excellence is the result ofcaring more than others think is wise, risking more than others think is safe, dreaming morethan others think is practical and expecting more than others think is possible!” Walt DisneyThe only real limits to what you can accomplish are the ones you put on yourself! Now goforward and reap the rewards of all your hard work and perseverance. JOB WELL DONE!!!!Sincerely,Michael A. SadoPresident,University of Hawai‘i at Hilo Student Association (UHHSA)

    • The Star-Spangled BannerPoem by Francis Scott Key Music by John Stafford SmithOh, say, can you see by the dawn’s early lightWhat so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.Oh, say, does that Star-Spangled Banner yet waveO’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?Hawai‘i Pono‘iMusic by Henri Berger Lyrics by David KalākauaHawai‘i pono‘ī Hawai‘i’s very own,Nānā i kou mō‘ī Look to your sovereign lord,Ka lani ali‘i Your chief that is heaven-born,Ke ali‘i. Who is your king.Hui:Makua lani ē Protector heaven-sent,Kamehameha ē Kamehameha great,Na kāua e pale To vanquish every foeMe ka ihe. With conquering spear.Hawai‘i pono‘ī People of Hawai‘i’s land,Nānā i nā ali‘i Look to your native chiefs,Nā pua muli kou Your sole surviving lords,Nā pōki‘i. The nation’s pride.Hawai‘i pono‘ī People of Hawaiian stock,E ka lāhui ē My nation ever dear,‘O kāu hana nui With loins begirt for workE ui ē. Strive with your might.

    • Academic RegaliaThe academic costume worn by faculty during commencement comes from an old tradition dating from the MiddleAges. At that time all students were clerics. Academic regalia was worn to keep students warm as well as toidentify the religious order to which the student belonged.In America, academic costumes were established based on the intercollegiate code of 1895. Each aspect of thecostume, such as gown color, mortarboard tassel, and sleeve shape, indicate something about the wearer and thehighest degree received.Most gowns are black, but some schools use brightly colored gowns. The color of the tassel indicates the highestdegree earned by the wearer; a doctor’s cap frequently bears a tassel of gold. Sleeves that are pointed are worn byholders of a bachelor’s degree, oblong sleeves by holders of master’s degrees, and bell-shaped sleeves indicate thewearer holds a doctorate or specialist degree. The doctor is distinguished by the three bars that adorn the sleeves ofthe gown.The brightly colored hoods are the outstanding feature of the academic costume. They represent both the field ofstudy and the university from which the degree was earned, as represented by the colors of both the border and thelining.Here at the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo, we also continue the tradition of marching in academic regalia. Indeed,the colorful procession of faculty is marked by distinctive caps and gowns from universities worldwide. Similarly, thecolor of the tassel worn by today’s graduation candidates reflect their major.Maize..........................................
