4 College Student

Overall Experience: Going to BYU-Hawaii has been great, but I wish I had a car so I didn't feel so isolated.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: There are limited majors and degrees available, but they offer the main ones.

4 College Student

Health & Safety: The school takes great caution in safety and security.

College Student

Greek Life: There are no fraternity or sororities at this school.

2 College Student

Athletics: The athletic program is beginning to diminish, so no one pays much attention.

College Student

Off-Campus Housing: I have never lived off campus.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: Laie is isolated so there are very few options.

4 College Student

Administration: It is very strict on church policies, but not very strict on other things.

3 College Student

Scholarships: I have no received finical aid as of now.

1 College Student

Party Scene: I have never been to a party here at BYU-Hawaii

3 College Student

Campus Food: For the price I am paying for the meal plan, the food should be better quality.

5 College Student

Campus Housing: Hale 7 is one of the newer Hale's, and it is very nice and clean. I am grateful that they recently build this new Hale.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus is nice, because there isn't too much rules like on campus, and it is much cheaper because you don't have a meal plan. You can cook for yourself and usually the houses are nice. However, there are not so many spaces open because there are so many students, so they run out of rooms. But off campus is wonderful because it gives you the chance to be more independent.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I like the off campus dining options, because it is just a two minute walk away. In addition, there are many choices in the local places. However, it may get old after a while, and then it's hard to find what you want. But the costs are reasonable, though it would be nice to have student discounts. Other than that, I wouldn't complain.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The school's policies are perfect because they help maintain a good atmosphere and set high standards. It helps bring a good name upon our school.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Financial aid services is wonderful and very helpful. I, personally, go there to ask what how I can pay off my tuition if I cannot afford it. They sit with you and go over with you, thoroughly on what I can do. They are very patient, and I feel comfortable talking to them about my financial problems.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Here in BYU-H, the parties/bonfires/dances are the best because we all have the same moral values, and it's safe. We do not have alcohol and drugs, which brings no police to scope around, and no fights; nothing that would harm anyone. They are taken place at the beach, there we have bonfires, where everyone can sit around, roast hotdogs, and have a "jam sess." They are taken place on campus, where we have dances from time to time, and it's always a good turn out. Sometimes, those brave enough, host at their house off campus. Safe and fun parties

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: It is pretty difficult with the food sometimes, because sometimes there are not enough choices, and the food doesn't really look appealing to eat. yet, there are days where the food can be great too. The nice thing about it is the flex dollars we can use to go into the Seasider Snack bar, which is always another option if we don't like what the café is serving. However, what's fun about the café is that it gives time for us to socialize with friends and aquaintances, that is one part that I miss about on campus food.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: On campus is great because it gives the opportunity to meet a lot of new people and classes are a short walking distance, because it is a small campus. However, it is not excellent because there are some old dorms that need to be rebuilt.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't lived off-campus yet, but the houses I've looked at seem decent for a college student to live in.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are about 5 places to eat in Laie. Most of them close by 11 pm though, so students are often starving at night. The prices are very high, but hey, that's what happens when you live in Hawaii. Let's just say I order pizza multiple times a week.

2 College Sophomore

Administration: The police every aspect of your life. There's not much you can get away with. But everyone signs a contract saying that they'll follow the rules so if you don't like the rules, get out.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The academic scholarships that students get automatically based on grades the previous semester are great and come out of your account quickly. But if you have external scholarships, it takes forever for the financial aid office to process them. I just got one that was supposed to go through last semester.

1 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are none. There is nothing to do in Laie. If you want a party scene, you have to take a 2 hour bus ride to Honolulu or make a friend with a car. There's always the beach, but usually that's for couples making out at night.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Food: It's so much more expensive than buying groceries like a normal human being. The food is nasty and I swear it's not real meat. I live off of grilled cheese (with fake American gross "cheese"), bagels, and stale cereal because I can't stomach whatever it is that they label as food. The hours are awful and I'm always starving at night when it's closed, especially on Sundays. There's not a lot of variety and it's all around horrific.
