4 College Junior

Academics: I just got into the Shidler College of Business and I'm required to attend mandatory advising which isn't a bad thing. Unfortunately, there are additional class charges for being in this school of business. My schedule consists of all businesses classes totally up to 15 credits so I can graduate on time.

3 College Junior

Academics: UHM offers a lot of different academic assistants through multiple programs. Hamilton library has AC, but food isn't allowed while Sinclair library doesn't have AC but allows food. There are tutoring sessions almost every day for various subjects. The teachers are decent, but do not build a student to teacher relationship. Registering is often exhausting when everyone is trying to register at the same time.

4 College Senior

Academics: The academics aspect of this school is great all around. While some majors and departments are stronger than others, most are certainly up to par. There is a huge backup when all students are trying to register online, and it is often difficult to find space in a class. The campus center is a great study area, and a lot of students utilize it!

5 College Senior

Academics: The College of Education is full of professors who are passionate about what they teach. The entire college is extremely supportive and inclusive. They hope to help shape the next generation of teachers.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Lots of classes and majors to choose from.
