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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Campus Housing: We have some very old dorms with small rooms. But, this BYUH opened up new dorms which are way nicer and the school plans on tearing down the older dorms to replace with new ones.

Scholarships: I have had a good experience receiving the financial aid I needed but I've heard experiences from other students who aren't so lucky. Also, scholarships are GPA based and you receive a scholarship if you have a GPA of 3.4 and higher. The amount you receive is also based on your GPA.

Campus Housing: I hate dealing with the housing office. They make more work for you and you have to fight them on everything

Off-Campus Housing: Better than dorms. The RAs find any excuse to give community service and $50 fines.
