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.

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.

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Facilities: The facilities are out of date, but they work ok.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: I am still new to the program, so do not have much experience with it, but hope it turns out great.

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

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'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.
