Representative Mark Nakashima toured the University of Hawaii at Manoa dormitories recently. As Vice Chairman of the House Committee on Higher Education, many of the repair and maintenance and capital improvement decisions will come within the committee's jurisdiction.
The tour included the newly re-built Frear Hall which is now a high rise complex replacing an older obsolete three story building that previous occupied the site on Dole Street. The new dormitory features private, semi-private and traditional two bed rooms including standard Internet wiring that has become the new hallmark as students become more and more connected.
The tour concluded with a visit to Representative Nakashima's former "digs" in the Hale Wainani Campus apartments. Mark is pictured here with full-time hall director.
