College Sophomore

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

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It's Hawaii. But not as expensive as one would think. The options are pretty limited and the good houses fill up pretty quickly! There are def some nice houses you just have to know people which kind of sucks… The housing page online is really helpful and most the landlords are pretty laid back!

Academics: The professors are very helpful if you ask. The overall academic experience really isn't too great, but as soon as you get into your program i think it gets a lot better.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Its fun because we do like an MUN thing and we can win prizes and all participate. The teachers are great and the workload is manageable. I'm still a sophomore so I don't really know exactly yet...

Nightlife: Well Waikiki or pro surfer parties like for real… but i mean the local college students throw some fun dance parties that usually get shut down at 11…

Local Atmosphere: It's the closest school to the North Shore of Hawaii. You can walk to the beach everyday and go on incredible hikes literally 2 minutes from campus. The Polynesian Cultural Center is next door and an incredible facility. There is so much culture in Laie and there are a lot of events. This school has people from all over the world, if you are looking for a cultural experience you can find it here. Obviously if you love the city waikiki is like less than an hour drive with world class shopping dining and partying. So really its the best place ever to live.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Well we recently got rid of all organized athletics so that sucks and is extremely annoying because there wasn't that much to do so everybody would go to the games! The gym is nice, could be updated but it works.. not many organized activities but its hawaii so its pretty easy to make your own fun.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: If you're doing business you are set. No opportunities really for internships at least while in school, theres nothing around except the university! No want to do a paid summer internship though off the island next summer!

College Sophomore

Majors: I don't think we have to apply for a major...

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: They do it based on GPA so if you do good in school you can get almost all your tuition paid for which is really awesome!

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Theres a taco bell, pizza hut and subway within walking distance. (they recently demolished the McDonalds). Also a couple local places… going along the north shore it gets a lot better but just walking you literally have like maybe 7 options!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The new dorms (hales 7-10) are incredible! Probably nicer than anything you will find off campus! Keep in mind though it is Hawaii and so things get dirty quickly and are a lot harder to maintain! The dorms are great for the price as well, the only thing that isn't the best is the caf but you get used to it! I loved my times in the dorms and wouldn't change it if i could go back! Also the housing process is a bit confusing but mostly because its self assign, once you figure it out its actually really nice! Loved the social atmosphere. This school is a melting pot and its so fun to be friends with people from all over the world!

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Being that classes are so small it's great for learning and interacting in class and especially when you need help the professors are always there for you.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The staff is ready to help with any career options you are dealing with and try their best to accommodate you in your future.

3 College Senior

Nightlife: There aren't many parties because of this little community but the bonfires are always fun.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Being that we are so small everyone knows about them and the support is great from both the community and the student body. It's a great feeling.

4 College Senior

Facilities: We have alright facilities and everything the athletes use the other students are able to use them through intramurals which is great.

College Senior

Greek Life: We don't have those but what we do have are culture groups that accept everyone and anyone and treat them like they would in their culture.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: It's about average, not the greatest but when it is the best food night take advantage of those nights. There are a lot of cultures here and every now and then the theme of a night would be after a country and that's fun for students to try that food or see the culture represented in performances.

5 College Senior

Diversity: The diversity on campus has to be the best and greatest out there because there are over 70 countries all represented on our little campus. Being this little campus everyone practically knows everyone or could because of the tightness and secluded feeling we have here in our little town of Laie.

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
