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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a Criminal Justice student, I love taking classes at Hawaii Pacific University. The classes have no more than 40 students in them, which is wonderful. This allows teachers to know every student name and make a connection with them. Since Hawaii Pacific University has two campuses we have a shuttle that takes us back on frot. The downtown campus is located on Fort Street Mall, which is where a lot of homeless people tend to camp out at. The other campus is called Hawaii Loa campus this is where my dorms are at. Dorms are expensive, there about 5,000 a semester plus the meal plan. Off-campus housing is a bit cheaper but since the college is in Hawaii, rent can be up to $1,800 for a 700 Square feet place. Our food is not great as us students would like but the people who cook it are pretty great. HPU encourage students to study abroad and do internships. They are very helpful at finding the information and helping us make plans. A great part of HPU is the students they accept. I have met many students from around the world and I get to learn about this country outside the classroom. Enough there is some area at Hawaii Pacific University that can be made better, the views from each campus is amazing. I get to walk to the shuttle stop and see how the warm sun shines on the green land or mountains. The best part is seeing the beach from the Pail Hwy or jumping into the warm water at the beach. My overall opinion is I like the school and what it has to offer me, I just wish it was cheaper.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I've only just started at HPU but so far, I am not very satisfied with my experience. As an undergraduate student, the class size is small which provides more opportunities to engage in class lecture and speak with the professor. Some but not all of the professors are well-educated and knowledgeable about the course material. The classrooms are small but equipped with everything you need. The campus is not safe with not enough security guards standing by. You must pay for parking. But as an undergrad, parking could be an issue. The area is also infested with older, homeless people that can sometimes get awkward.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

i rather go to a different school however, i'm in the military so this is the closest school to me. The VA reps here are not helpful AT ALL therefore i have to go on base. Base HPU however is a different story, Wendy is an amazing person, she set up all my classes, made sure my AS was in the system correctly and takes my calls as well as emails me back. I couldn't say that about Patrick Eagle or the head VA rep. He's another story.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy attending Hawaii Pacific University. It is a very diverse campus with people all over the world coming in year-round. Upperclassmen and fellow students are very friendly and always willing to set up a study date to assist those in need. Professors and the office staff are always available and will go out of their way to help students succeed. The class size is relatively small so it is not overcrowded and it makes it easier for the Professor to focus on the students that need help. The campus is beautiful and there are plenty of cheap restaurants to eat breakfast and lunch. Transportation is easy and the school offers a city bus pass for students to ride the bus for a whole semester. The resources and textbooks are very helpful when having questions concerning the class material and library staff is always willing to help find books and articles to help students with their studies. Overall, it does have very rigorous academic material, but students should succeed with the helpful professors and peers surrounding them.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a very nice school with very active students and there's always something to do, especially for those of us from out of state and in Hawaii for the first time. The tuition is pretty expensive but the experiences and learning opportunities make it worth while.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, HPU is treating me well and i'm liking how the academics are and the student body. I've met people from different countries and I live that the class size is small to the point where we can actually get to know the professor and make friends in class. I'm looking forward to the next four years.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Its a very good school for focusing on the individual student. The professors want to get to know you personally, and the classes max out at 30ish students. I like the views, but sometimes the help offices are slow to get back to me. Some announcements are a little confusing, but overall a very good school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that Hawaii Pacific University is an amazing school. I'm glad that I chose this school to go to further my marine science education. The teachers are fantastic and very engaging, the students are nice and always helpful and the overall staff that facilitates the university is organized. I couldn't have chosen a better school to study at.
