Health & Safety: I honestly don't know much about the sexual assault rates on campus, but there a lot of auto thefts that occur from the school parking lots.

Overall Experience: There is a job fair every semester in which many company representatives come together to hand out applications and give out information about possible employment.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: School spirit is minimal due to inefficient school rallies or student participation/awareness of sporting events.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: One of the reasons why I love my school (especially the department that I am majoring in) is because the staff motivates me to do my best work and encourages me to continue along the educational path to earning my Master's Degree.

Health & Safety: Cars have been stolen from the parking lot before and security doesn't really do anything about it. Personally I've never felt unsafe walking around campus at night.

Overall Experience: Constantly get emails about different internship and job opportunities. It helps to be proactive and get to know your professors.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Hale Ikena is definitely preferably because of the kitchen space. The other dorms seem a little cramped. The furniture and carpets could definitely use some improvements. RA's always have events going on if you want free food or just need something to do. Don?t expect to have any dorm parties, you?ll get shut down with a noise complaint pretty quick.

3 College Senior

Athletics: I've only been to one sports game here, but the school does advertise the games and there are clubs that try to provide school spirit. I wouldn't say sports are that emphasized here especially compared to some other big name schools.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Compared to other schools I've been to, the student body here is very diverse. Everyone?s pretty much laid back and friendly. I haven?t had any bad experiences with any teachers, but some are definitely stricter when it comes to grades and giving extra credit. The weekend adventures provided through the school are a great way to explore the island if you don?t have a car. The dorms could use some upgrades and parking can be a bit of a nightmare if you get stuck with the general parking pass. Overall it?s a pretty decent school with a beautiful campus.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Depends on the type of housing you choose. Apartment style is the best because you can cook in it. others not so much because it is illegal for you to cook food in room other than microwave. Doors between adjoining rooms don't always lock. And most dorms feel like a prison just because of the look

Athletics: Awesome new gym. Athletes are some of the best students on campus coaches make sue of that. Big community help also. Intramurals is also fun I help work the nights mon-friday!

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Its a great school to go and learn. It doesn't have any frats you see all over in todays world. very small campus but rated high. Awesome exchange school for sure! Everyone becomes close in group activity's easily!

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus safety is pretty good, there are not many serious crimes on campus and within the wider community. Campus security is not many but there are a few you spot here and there, there are emergency call stations placed through the campus that I believe are for incase something happens. Campus is small enough where everyone especially on the dorm side will notice.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love my school as I said before, my courses have been pretty standard so far and love my professors and have really had no problems but for one I ultimately ended up dropping, I have since but an average student I can do the work it is more the effort to do it. I love how my teachers make it easy to learn and class sizes are too big I think this might have to do with my major. I think lecture style is the most common some teachers are more flexible with their structure though. Overall a good first experience at university.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I know that for many students in my field we end up getting a TESOL certificate as well when we graduate so there are many opportunities to teach abroad and a placement as well, many classmates are from other countries hoping to become English teachers in their home countries as well as having a good hawaiian language program a lot of people go into the teaching of Hawaiian language or culture revitalization. We have had career fairs and many government programs come and recruit which I found great such as NSA, FBI, State Department all wonderful and because of our diverse campus they can have a diverse field of applicants, the student services centre is a good one with it's own new building and which the admissions, financial aid, registration,business office on one floor and the academic advising, counseling centre, study abroad, womens centre, disability services on the other.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is alright especially if you don't want to drive to school everyday. The atmosphere is alright not much to do in our small town at night so really have to have a good group of friends to hang with if you want some excitement, a lot of people stay up for munchies otherwise just spending time in the dorms when your studying by yourself or not. The library is open till our 10/12 so it is good for late night book work, The mall closes early but some movies are open late night to go and watch, the newest dorms are alright but lack air-conditioning which makes a fan or multiple ones necessary, they are expensive for our small town budget but they are making a new campus village around it. Hopefully in a couple of years we will see the campus revitalized.

Greek Life: We have no Greek life on our campus, our school is too small for such an organization/institution to be reasonable and worthwhile here. Although many people do end up living on campus and near off campus there are dorm/university organized events for students and many off campus partying.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: School spirit is indeed something that we have at UH Hilo, but our overall sports teams are overshadowed by our bigger sister school on Oahu UH Manoa, even through this we do have people with good talent come to our school for studying and many students enjoy attending games when they have the chance. Our workout facility is alright and many diverse types of students use it. I believe because we are near the beach many people would rather spend their time surfing or swimming there than hanging out in a stuffy gym.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love my school it is in my home town. One thing that I find really amazing since attending UH Hilo is how many people form all over the world come here and how international we seem to be. I have made wonderful amazing friends from many other states and countries. Much of them are willing to show me around there states/towns/countries when I visit. The experiences I made just staying in my own little town out in the middle of the ocean is such an experience I never realized I would have back in high school. This is why I definitely like that I chose to stay.

Campus Housing: Hosuing depends on where you live for whether or not its good. Kanilehua is haunted.

Overall Experience: Appreciate all the professors who I have taken classes with. The quality of the courses have exceeded my expectations. The variety of courses offered is sometimes monotonous but overall good. Class sizes are small and perfect.

5 College Senior

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Not an important part of campus life

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Medium sized school, professors who care, quality topics are taught.
