4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's way cheaper and you don't have to waste money on a meal plan.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There aren't many food places nearby but the ones that are there are pretty good.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: There isn't much partying happening here.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Sometimes they don't really take care of loud people.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: The meal plans are seriously overpriced and they force it upon a lot of the students.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Kauanoe has wood furniture and termites but that isn't too big of an issue. The other halls are much, much better.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: No greek life. But that's okay...

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Enough variety for everyone to enjoy something

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Not bad; a few good 'hole in the wall' places

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Luckily I haven't had to interact a great deal, but they are always available.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I haven't had much experience with the scholarships at this university. However, I am applying now and it is going smoothly.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: It s an over priced buffet so you are forced to get as much food as possible in order to fill the amount your paid, gaining your freshmen fifteen with ease.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There are several different dorms to live in but that one I stayed in for two years (non-consecutively) was Hale Kehau. I had the shared bathroom with three other girls. The room was spacious compared to a dorm at Manoa, with a high ceiling and ample closet space. It was also carpeted. There was enough room to have a mini fridge and a microwave. My roommates were cool too.

Applying was pretty easy - it was online and you could select your preferences in your ideal roommate.

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: If you want a place that's moderately clean and you won't be killed by some drunk idiot, you're gonna have to pay. That's assuming you get past the wait lists these Hawaiian landlords have for places that are within driving distance to campus.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: If you have the want/need/cash to do it, off-campus can be fun.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: These guys are just doing their job. Once you talk to them, they're mostly cool with you.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I am WUE, so this school was the cheapest option, but they didn't give me anything for the first 2 years. I'm here on outside scholarships. Now I got Work Study. holla.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Definitely takes getting used to the Dining hall food. But now that I'm off the plan, I miss those yellow carrots...

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: When you get here, it might scare you how small the rooms are, but you get used to it. I was in Alahonua without a roommate for 2 years, so I was pretty happy.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I love my house and my roommates!

4 College Junior

Administration: Not really that strict about anything. The only place where they're strict is in the dorms.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I received a soccer scholarship but the school didn't have that much money so I didn't get a lot of money.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: The only "party" options are house parties. The clubs here suck and there isn't much of a nightlife. But once you start meeting people the house parties are actually pretty fun.

Campus Food: The only good time to eat the food was brunch..."sometimes"

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms were too small and there were termites that they wouldn't get rid of. The dining hall food was also very bland. Some RA's took their job too far and abused their authority.
