Wayland Baptist University Hawaii is a great and convenient place for me to go to school. The classes are very intimate and the teachers are very thorough in their teaching. Most of the students are older and have a military background. Although I am one of the youngest students there, there are some that are even younger. This is because my school offers a jump start program where kids in high school can start their college classes. I think it is better to have an older crowed of students because they are serious about their education and are mature. I really have enjoyed this school.

Just like many places in life there are those up's and those down's. but at Wayland Baptist the good definitely out ways the bad. This place became home away from home. When I first stepped on campus I thought to myself things weren't going to be right. The people were amazing. The environment was amazing. The teachers were amazing.

The faculty and staff is very considerate about everyone's situation when it comes to financial needs. The only reason I wouldn't choose it again is because it's in a lonesome area with not much to do. However, I would choose it again because it's the best school I ever attended in both sports and academics.
