What is your overall opinion of this school?

From the people I have heard from it is very diverse school and I love that about it as well as it is called the pacific Ohana. Family means a lot to me and I like being apart of the pacific ohana. They are very family friendly. There are a lot of schools that have to much people because they are a big campus and Hawai’i pacific does have a lot of students but all students get along very well !

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Being a part of Hawaii Pacific University is like a new Ohana. Being the first year here at HPU is really great because they are very helpful, especially during the day of classes. This campus is very diverse, a lot of students who are coming from all over the country which sets HPU more than another university's out there. Most of all, the professor are very helpful and welcoming, they are accessible anytime with whatever questions that every student has.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Hawai'i Pacific University is best known for its diversity and its ability to accommodate international and national students while also educating students about Hawai'i in order for students to be aware of the land they attend school. There campus show even more how diverse the school is because they have 3 different locations and they each serve a specific purpose in their location which is convenient for the students who attend the school. Although some areas could be improved, I can tell the school is working to update the school as a whole.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I just finished my first year of college at Hawaii pacific University and it was an experience I'll never forget. The University is relatively small in size, each class is about 25 to 30 students maximum. The campus itself is very modern in the sense that it is not a typical campus, classes are in different office buildings along Fort Street Mall. However, there are pro's and con's; While there is many shops, restaurants, business, and job opportunists available, there are many people who are not students in the area as well. There are different options for housing whether it be in the water front dorms or in one of the many near-by apartments. The school does have a few sports teams but HPU primarily focuses on academics. The number of courses offered at HPU can accommodate any type of degree, as well as interest. One of the best parts of Hawaii Pacific University is the Aloha attitude the students, professors, and staff have. I have never had a negative encounter with anyone at the university. Also, due to the fact that Hawaii is in the middle of the Pacific ocean, there is a large number of exchange students from foreign countries. It has been nice experience being exposed to and educated about other cultures from around the world. This was a year of school that I would not trade for anything.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Great quality, but with a high price. Great professors, they truly care about the subject and their students. The school is phenomenal with the military and veterans, and their dependents. Through this, they offer a multitude of online classes, instructed by the same great professors who are in the classroom.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like the classroom sizes there are no more than 30 students per class and there a lot of opportunities to grow. There are also many internships and jobs available through HPU that often outnumber the students. The housing facilities could be improved as well as the food.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I think Hawaii Pacific is a good learning environment with a good atmosphere. The professors are extremely knowledgeable and are great at what they do. The facilities are decent. Admissions and academic advising can be a pain. Having two campuses is different for sure, and it really depends on which campus you live on as to how much is accessible to you. The bus pass provided with tuition is a life saver so you can travel the island without having to pay the bus fares everytime you have to use it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Hawaii Pacific University is a close knit school that focuses on creating student networks, providing small intimate class sizes, and engaging students in extracurricular activities. This school is best for independent students ready to chase what they want and who are not afraid to try new things. Although here to support you through your academic journey, HPU is a college that encourages self sufficiency. The campus is mainly in downtown Honolulu with another campus on the east side of the island. This campus creates well rounded multidisciplinary leaders, and motivated students thrive here. There are sports teams that we are proud of and we rep our Sharks gear on game day, however the environment is largely academic and island life inclined. We often get together to go hiking, play beach volleyball, go surfing or paddle boarding, tour the art museums, or head to north shore for some local culture. For those who want a challenging, independence focused, nontraditional college experience, I would highly recommend Hawaii Pacific University. We have new programs being developed all the time, and students play a large role in deciding HPU's path forward, for those inclined to make the most of their college experience I also highly recommend they apply to the Residential Honors Program. Mahalo! We can't wait to see you for the next Aloha Friday, we'll be watching fireworks on Waikiki Beach!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think HPU is a excellent school and I enjoy being here. There are administrative issues, but that's a problem most universities have. There are a lot of great resources, too, and the atmosphere is really chill and welcoming. All the professors I've had have been really enthusiastic about their work and honestly want to help students learn, the classes are usually fairly small, and you get to know the people in your program.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Hawaii Pacific University is a good school for a student that is mostly focused on doing their schoolwork and going home. I found that most are disappointed with the fact that HPU does not have a college feel to it at all, there are 2 separate campuses that you have to take a bus to get to. The housing at the loa campus is dirty and the food is not good, the other campus housing is much nicer but there is no parking (unless you want to pay $30 for 2 hours). Because of my experience at HPU, I​ will be transferring.
