3 College Sophomore

Facilities: The facilities are out of date, but they work ok.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: With a small school you lose a lot of the options, but the options they have are really good. There are good classes and professors

3 College Sophomore

Academics: I do not have too much experience with it yet, but hope it will be great!

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The environment is not one where you have to worry about much, the biggest thing you have to worry about is locals that don't want you there

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Since it is a small school there are not a ton of options, but they do their best to offer students more options

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I am still new to the program, so do not have much experience with it, but hope it turns out great.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: You will never find a more beautiful place to live, but that being said it is small, too small for after studies for most.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The food is something that you can survive on and it is convenient, but not the cheapest and not the healthiest probably

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: In regards to international students, there are few places where people come from so many different backgrounds.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: While i am grateful to have received a scholarship, it is not enough to cover the expenses to the extent I had hoped as a father and husband attending school.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The classes are small, so teachers are a bit more able to focus on individuals, which is really great. On the other hand this also means that there are less options than would be at a school with large classes.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The option is there, but there is not a lot in regards to internships, and recruiting doesn't seem to happen too much.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The fact is there is just not enough option here, whats there is ok, but nothing great

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: BYU Hawaii is a unique school for a vast plethora of reasons, not the least of which is its unique mission to make all of its students into global citizens who are a force for good internationally and globally. BYUH has an extremely diverse student population, many fun and exciting dances and activities, and is like one giant community or family of interlinking friends. The classes are small, the teachers and students are extremely, crazily, nice, and the food isn't half-bad either.

The housing is okay, and the pricing is extremely humbling in its affordability, the school sacrifices much for its students.

The only aspects that could be bad would be the intense religious pressure on campus, and the trend to cut back on certain aspects of uni life due to funding issues. The school greatly subsidizes the education costs of its students, as a result of this truly amazing gift things such as the school's intercollegiate sports teams are being phased out.

Another good thing about the school is that it offers a ton of opportunities for student-employment, and some really good merit-based scholarships as well.

All in all, I'd say the school is one of the most beautiful and amazing places I have ever studied.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: We don't have a greek life.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: All we have is the foodland shopping center if you don't have a car. If you do, the opportunities are endless because you can go to town or Haleiwa.

Majors: I think all majors here get a good bit of attention. Business majors have different tracks they can enter into and our school is very entrepreneurship centered. We have a lot of opportunities to enter competitions for price money and the program is very successful overall.

College Sophomore

Majors: I've never had an internship through the school before. Most of the internships are for seniors who are graduating. The cool thing about our school though is that internships are mostly international.

Academics: Business majors have a lot of great professors with real-world experience. We also just recently gained a new building for mainly business classes so its really nice. Classes are a bit tough but it's not hard to receive help from teacher and tutors.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: We have plenty of buildings to hang out in and a couple new ones as well. The library seems to be a very social spot along with the aloha center.

Parking: Tickets aren't really taken seriously at our school... paying the tickets isn't a problem either because they aren't really expensive. Parking spots are all around school so its not usually a problem finding parking except for sundays.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: We are currently undergoing a phase out for our athletics so pretty soon we won't have sports to go to and we will be an intramural sport centered school.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: We have very attractive students and a very good social environment.

Transportation: We don't really have school provided transportation because you can pretty much walk everywhere. If you ever need to go far though, the school has cars you can rent and it's not too expensive. Airport shuttles are available at the beginning and end of the semester for a certain price.

Drug Safety: We have an honor code which means students are not allowed to participate in using drugs or alcohol or they risk getting kicked out. Most students that attend are also Mormon so drugs and alcohol are not usually a problem.
