4 College Freshman

Academics: There are a variety of courses that are offered for students.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: A very diverse campus and environment.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's not bad but it could be better. The school is slowly going downhill

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Career prospects isn't that great, you have to go off island to get a better job

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Pretty safe but downtown and aloha tower has a lot of homeless people

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Hawaii loa - old, moldy, disgusting, out of the way

Aloha tower - new, convenient, extremely expensive

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.

Athletics: The athletic community is good for the people involved in the athletic community, but for everyone else the facilities aren't up to date.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Although the classes my first year have been extremely easy, the environment of the school is amazing. The professors listen to the students and the workload is manageable.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My schools surroundings are beautiful the nature is incredible, some classes even go out on a boat. Though there are many homeless people disturbing the campus. If I would have to do it over again, I would probably still come to Hawaii to experience everything but then quickly move to better school with more credentials. Most people ask what I do in Hawaii all day. They believe I lie under a palm and drink out of a coconut, even though I have a normal life like everyone else, though on the weekends I am privileged enough to go to the beach, hiking or surfing.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school made me realize that I liked college a lot more than high school because of the social environment provided. My first semester was pretty good and well balanced but because of how my schedule is I'm having difficulties completing all of my assignments by the time they are due and it seems a bit overwhelming.

Health & Safety: I feel safe at school.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are many interesting courses to take. There is a history class that teaches about the history of manga/anime, which I thought was interesting. Also teachers are helpful, and free tutoring services are available.
