Registered Independent Organizations

Kapi‘olani Community College provides opportunities to get involved in the campus community. There are several active RIOs (Registered Independent Organizations – student clubs and organizations) including those with academic, cultural, or social focuses. The Office of Student Activities (OSA) encourages all students to get involved in co-curricular activities as there are many benefits associated with these experiences. You can enhance your education, add experience to your resumé, learn to be a leader, strengthen your leadership, and develop personally and professionally. If there is not an existing RIO for your interests, then start a new RIO! All you need is four KapCC students and a staff/faculty advisor. Come by the OSA office at ‘Iliahi 126 for more information, or call 734-9576. Get involved!
