Living in Hawaii and going to school has been an adventure. At first it was hard to manage time between classes and going to the beach; but you learn pretty fast. Smaller class sizes allow for better relationships and communication between you and your professors. And a smaller campus is nice because everything is close and within walking distances, and is close to the beach which is a plus. BYU-Hawaii is unique in that there are students from over 70 different countries here. Meeting people from all over the world and .learning more about their culture and traditions has been really fun. Although the tuition is relatively cheap, it is very expensive to live in Hawaii which is why I would not choose to come to this school again if I had to do it all over again. Other than the cost, I have had a great time here at Hawaii!

BYU-Hawaii provides a safe, wholesome environment for its students. Our administration strives to maintain a clean, spiritual atmosphere where students can study, work, and socialize. Here, I have been able to grow and mature as a person. I love being a student at BYU-Hawaii because I feel like I can gain my education free of the distractions of a raging party scene and other disruptions common to the college environment.
This does not, however, deny us the opportunity to have a fun college experience. Living so near the beach is a luxury, and our activities committee is constantly planning fun, wholesome events for us to enjoy.

To start, my school is located in Hawaii. Students from over 50 different nations attend BYU-Hawaii, so our school is rich in culture. I love experiencing the different cultures and meeting people from all over the world. On top of that, I play volleyball for my school's team. I love being able to continue in my sport in college. I have 4 married teammates, 3 of which have kids, yet they persevere and manage school, family, and sports! I also have teammates from Taiwan and Mongolia. At our games we play the national anthem as well as the Hawaii anthem. My school is so different from other schools, and I love it. The diversity has helped me so much in developing myself and opening my mind. I think attending BYUH is preparing me well for the future.
