3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The downtown campus has several eclectic food choices along Fort Street Mall and is only a bus ride or walk away from many other choices.

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus.

2 College Senior

Athletics: There is minimal support for our athletics. The cheer and dance team used to be nationally ranked but then they stopped giving out scholarships and it went down the tubes. The basketball team and volleyball team are probably the most supported.

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: There is no off campus housing affiliated with HPU. You just find your own and it is very expensive, with limited parking.

Off-Campus Dining: Because I live on the windward side, there are no options for off campus dining unless you go 5 miles either into Kailua or Kaneohe.

Administration: When I lived in the dorms they were very strict about noise sometimes, but other times not so much. They were very strict about alcohol which made it hard to be safe and drink at home because the only other option was to go into downtown.

1 College Senior

Scholarships: I have no applied but I have heard that it is a terrible process and very difficult to get any aid. I know I won't be able to get any because I am white, from a middle class family, and have a job.

Party Scene: There is no kind of nightlife on campus. You have to take the bus or a car into downtown waikiki.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: Some days the food is better than others. When they have "create your own" bars those are the best. Like create your own flatbread pizza, or edamame, or soups. The grill is good but it isn't the best to eat greasy grilled cheese, hamburgers, and curly fries daily.

2 College Senior

Campus Housing: Living on campus was an interesting experience. There is not much school spirit or activities to participate in like most other campuses. It is very expensive, the dorms are small and unclean. The housing process is difficult and for those who left after the first semester it was a nightmare for them to get out of their year-long housing payment.

3 College Freshman

Administration: You can get a U-Pass, but its usually about 200 dollars a semester. I wouldn't take the bus from downtown though - there's a looooot of druggies and homeless that just hop on.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: Parking is usually about 15 - 20 dollars a school day downtown. No use in driving tho, the traffic is so horrible that it took me nearly 2 hours to get to and from school each day, and I only lived 10 miles away.

Party Scene: As a Computer Science major, I can honestly tell you the tech at this school is just sad. Even the professors are fed up with it. I'm currently enrolled in a class where each student just brought their own laptops in - because the school's computers would not allow us to do the tasks that were needed for the course work.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: You have the option of a food plan, but the school does not have a cafe. The Loa campus has places to eat, but that's not really "the school". You only take a select few of the classes there. (Mostly just chemistry and nursing classes are taken there). About 90% of your classes will be taken downtown in the middle of Honolulu's financial district.

Your food options are just the privately owned shops that are downtown right next to the "school" <--- buildings rented out that HPU owns.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: School housing is only available at the Loa Campus, which is on the other side of the island from the buildings where you will take most of your actual classes.

They have just recently developed the Aloha tower "suites" for the downtown area. But you still need to walk thru downtown honolulu to get to school.

Off-Campus Dining: There are a wide variety and sometimes new things are there to try, however it is based on preference

3 College Junior

Administration: I choose to drive because i often have to work after my classes end for the day. It isn't the best but it is what I have to do

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I've run into trouble with Fafsa and parking often. Having a school that is downtown a good majority, makes it difficult if you work a job that is away from campus.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Along, Fort Street Mall, there are many choices

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Professor are very accommodating. If you're struggling with your classes just ask for help and they are willing to help you with it.

Administration: You will get expelled if you come to class/school intoxicated.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Sometimes financial aid comes in late and your bill for school is being sent out already.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: You'll get yourself kick out if you such thing as sexual assault or bad to the students.

5 College Junior

Local Area: There are so many beautiful and relaxing places to visit. You may go hiking, do some water sports, try cultural foods and people are friendly.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Hawaii is expensive to begin with, but it has variety to chose from. Some restaurant restaurant offers discount.
