Creative Media Lab
The BOSP Creative Media Lab (CML) is a place for all Kapi‘olani CC students to express their creativity through Adobe Creative Cloud (CC). There’s something for everyone, and you don’t have to be an expert to use it! Adobe CC gives you access to the best tools and applications for Graphic Design (Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator); Video Editing (Adobe After Effects and Adobe Premiere Pro); Web Development; (Adobe Dreamweaver and Adobe Muse); Photography (Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom); PDF Editing (Adobe Acrobat Pro); and much more! The CML is designed to provide students with the ability to use new technology and resources for their personal projects and growth while reducing the common financial barriers.
Kapi‘o News is Kapiʻolani Community College’s student newspaper. We publish on a regular basis and feature student writing in the following categories: news, features, and opinions.

Ka Hue Anahā
Ka Hue Anahā Journal of Academic & Research Writing publishes academic and research writing in all disciplines and programs and from all courses, except for Science, Technology, Engineering, and math research reports, which are published in Pueo ʻo Kū. The name Ka Hue Anahā translates as “The calabash of light” or “The wellspring of reflected light”, and is meant to reflect the diversity of opinions and spectrum of cultures our island state fosters while also paying homage to the concept of ‘welcoming ideas from across the curriculum’ previously engendered in a 2004-2006 publication called Spectrum. For inquiries and information about submissions, contact BOSP.
