4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I find the courses quite cool since it's a reasonable number to have with the programs. The work load is sometimes a lot but bearable and the style that my professors put our work into is similar to the we use to work just with a little more to do.

Overall Experience: People are still exploring the degrees that the University of Hawaii at Hilo has to offer but it's a good starting point to "get your feet wet". The career advisers help students find internships that are more suited for them and is really good.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The staff is always aware and the administrative office and staff are always there for all of their students. Students themselves have a small group that cares for one another, so if anything were to happen no one would get away with anything. Security is always keeping a watch out to prevent that situation from happening, and they are doing a really good job.

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.

4 College Senior

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
