Everyone is very helpful and friendly. The food in the cafe is awesome great taste great choices. Love the fact I am away a college but yet not to far from home. UH Hilo has a lot of activities for not only new student but for every student on campus.

It was a different experience for me. I liked the paste it was fast moving yet bearable to keep up with.
