Summer sessions were great for getting to know my way around the school, especially for this fall semester. My school is unique because it's a melting pot, just like our Hawaii state. Manoa has numerous clubs, organizations, and sports we could be a part of. If we need money, there is also a great range of on- and off-campus jobs.

My school is okay because sometimes I have good teachers and other times I have bad teachers.

My school has its ups and downs. The ups include diversity, lots of access to clubs and information, and prime location. However, the downs are a lot of us feel like we are paying for a school that is not improving either the teaching or buildings/dorms.
