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.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love living on campus because it's a great way to meet everyone! You live around so many people that you're bound to find a great group of friends. Dorms aren't great forever though; I think that everyone should have the on-campus dorm experience, but it's almost time for me to move off-campus because I want to have my own kitchen. Living in the dorms is actually more expensive than living off-campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have little experience with off-campus housing.

3 College Freshman

Academics: There are better academic opportunities elsewhere.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: We don't really have fraternities or sororities.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I struggled with the confusion but I did eventually receive the aide I needed.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: The people and environment seem happy.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I find our housing to be one of the best out there.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The unity it provides for the community is wonderful.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is minimal but keeps me fed.

3 College Junior

Majors: I did not have any problems getting into my school with my major.

3 College Junior

Majors: I have only met one other person in my entire class that is also going to be a history major. The classes offered aren't what I really wish to study for history either.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: The building I live in was built only a year ago and it has tons of problems already. The elevator has been broken for a month and a half and nobody came to fix it until a week ago, but it still breaks even after being fixed. Our lights have stopped working occasionally and the wifi here is horrible. I am paying extra to live in this dorm, but the only perk is having a private bathroom.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The health center is not open for very long, but they are really good if you just have a cold or flu. The co-pay is also very cheap.

3 College Junior

Majors: I don't plan on having an internship because my major does not require it. At this point, I am really hoping to graduate as quickly as possible. I will be taking summer courses and trying my best to get A's in all of my classes so I can have good opportunities for future schooling.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Most of the people here are nice. Some of the people are stuck up rich kids that are very fake, but there are many genuine people here.

College Junior

Party Scene: There are no parties on campus or off. If people want to party they go to the beach or go off campus to Waikiki.

1 College Junior

Athletics: We are getting rid of athletics in two years, and nobody really pays attention to them. We don't even have football...

Off-Campus Dining: Taco Bell, Pizza Hut and Seven Brothers are the only food places near campus to go. There is also Angels' Shave Ice, which is pretty expensive seeing as you are paying for frozen water...

3 College Junior

Local Area: It's a very small town. There is not much to do; students take the bus out of town on the weekends because of how isolated we are.
