Roland Tugade Jr., left, Eunkyung Lee and Jiyeon Park, former and current students in hospitality and tourism at Kapiolani Community College, spoke Monday about the new tourism safety and security class to be offered this fall. “Millennials are traveling differently nowadays, and it’s harder to monitor the safety of some of the choices,” Tugade said. “It’s crucial that we find a way to do that because if we don’t have healthy tourism, Hawaii won’t stay afloat.”
