Abstract:Brief excerpt from interview: It's a stage of the culture shock, where at first you come here and you're really excited and everything is new...and then there's a point in time where you're like 'okay, I have to adjust to all of this.' I guess I'm still in that adjusting period. Just going home, and then switching back to the city mentality and seeing all of this, it's very hard. It gets harder. I can't go home and visit as much because I have finals. Kauaʻi people, we get very homesick. When we come back [to Oʻahu], we see limitations. I had taken a 251 class where you give speeches and do research on just speaking. And that really changed how I looked at college. I became so much more interested in my classes. Finding communicology as my major really opened up a whole new door for me. It really makes appreciate that I came to college.
Description:This item includes a segment of a student interview in a Writing Intensive course in Communicology at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. The interview was conducted in 2014, and in this clip the interviewee is responding to the question 'Were your relationships with classmates, the campus, Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi, or the Pacific changed in any way? Do you see your major or your educational experience any differently as a result of it?'
