4 College Senior

Overall Experience: My overall experience at HPU has been great, they have a campus near to my home, application process was easy and straight forward. They really tried to make the best of my military experience and apply it towards my degree. The only issue I have had was with financial aide. I qualified for $4,400 in the Pell Grant through the FAFSA, however, I did not receive any after further evaluation from HPU. I don't believe that was HPU trying to keep aide away from the students I believe it to be more of the system of how much money you make. Which strikes me as odd seeing as millions go unclaimed every year, they should make sure that the money gets used so that the federal government doesn't take it away for that reason.

Overall Experience: Hawaii Pacific University is a really good friendly school that works with the individual. They know people have a job and life outside of class and are really good about working with your schedule and using previous credits to their fullest to help you get your degree faster. They have multiple campus' throughout the island and are very accessible. Best set of instructors and advisors I have worked with.

Greek Life: not a fan of it

3 College Senior

Athletics: could be better but don't have the funds for it

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus i haven't been involved in any crime. It is more of the people you hang around that puts you in those situations.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Well i am not in greek life and im indiffrent about them they are peopple and so are we. I feel the other students don't really care and don't make a big deal about it at all.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I think sports are a big part of the school because with out them then we wouldnt be close as a community. Yes we have classes but sports really bring people together.

4 College Freshman

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics are not a priority

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's a very diverse school and you get to learn a lot about other cultures. I wouldn't choose it again only because they have screwed me over, causing me to have to extend my time there and pay more money

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The Hawaii Loa campus has security at the entrance of the parking lot and buildings. The downtown campus on the other hand is a bit more public, but police and security are always walking around or near the classroom entrances.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Our private college, provides individualized attention which is great when I need help with a certain subject. You get to know the professors by name and vice versa. The class sizes range from 20-50. The courses are easy to pass if you study and do your homework.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I tend to see numerous job and club booths pop up when I am walking to class. My older friends that have the same major as me that have graduated are already working in hospitals and getting many job interviews at hospitals.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I, for one, am not athletic so I do not have a strong interest in sports. However, we are known for our soccer teams and basketball teams.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I enjoy the weather and views that I get to see when driving to and from school. Since this college is so diverse, it gives me the opportunity to meet people from different countries and listen to their experiences. Most of the instructors are very helpful and always have an open ear when are having trouble understanding a concept. They want you to succeed and will try to personally get to know you. So far, I love this college and the friends I have made here. However, I do wish that the Hawaii Loa and Downtown campus was a bit nicer and more modern.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The only thing that is somewhat unsafe about the campus is the homeless that come around and are sometimes impulsive.
