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.

It is a great school with lots of diversity and beautiful scenery. Class sizes are small so you feel comfortable talking to professors even outside of class! You get a real since of 'Ohana' from everyone on campus. If you haven't decided please come to HPU! You'll love it!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Hawaii Pacific University. My only problem with it is how expensive the on campus housing is. The best bet will be to get your own apartment, you'd save so much money. Also, get a good relationship with your roommates. Be sure to talk about guests, cleanliness and just getting along with one another so you can always have someone to hang out with on the weekends.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you only focus on academics and the overall experience of attending school in Hawaii, Hawaii Pacific University is an amazing experience. HPU has two campuses, one in Kaneohe and another in Honolulu. The kaneohe campus (which is called Hawai'i loa) is small but gorgeous, located right next to the ko'olau mountains. This campus offers a cafeteria where the food is alright, a small gym, and classes less than a 5 minute walk away. Although the Hawai'i loa campus is beautiful, the dorms are disgusting. The other campus, located in Honolulu, is called ATM– since its built next to the Aloha Tower Marketplace. The dorms are newly renovated and gorgeous, but the classes are a 15-20 minute walk away. Classes are in the middle of where all the homeless people live, so its very disgusting and dirty. Don't make the mistake I did, attend UH instead.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

While Hawaii Pacific University was a great school during my time of attendance from 2010-2014, loss of funding to the international affairs program led to the departure of fantastic courses and faculty. The university, in general, has transitioned to being a primary business and nursing school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that Hawaii Pacific University is an extremely great school, especially for Nursing Students. They have an entire simulation area for Nursing students, and the Nursing advisors are always available and try to help as much as they can. However, I would recommend a wider range of teachers and times, to accommodate most people's personal schedules.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe Hawaii Pacific University is unique in many ways, some good and some bad. It is not the normal college experience because we don't have one campus. We have three and it is mainly a commuter school so it is hard to meet up with classmates and have big groups of friends. Some people do not last here very long because of the expenses and the immediate responsibility you are given once dropped off especially if a student lives off campus which most do. It can get kind of lonely because we are not a spirited campus and no one really knows each other. But class sizes are impeccable and the hiking and beaches can always make up for anything!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Hawaii Pacific University is a great university to be in. Surely, students will find their own group of people to be around. The small class sizes are one of the great things there as they'll allow more interaction between students and professors. This also means that students should have an easier time learning and asking questions. The classroom ambiance is fantastic meaning students will not feel intimidated or easily bored, allowing them to engage more in activities. Students also have great access to various shops and restaurants as the university is all around town!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Well with the factors in which HPU excels in, there are also room for improvement. There isn't a lot of school events where A LOT of people are social or active in participating. There is a decent amount yet not what I would want. Its small enough to where, if there was a contest of any kind, your highly likely to win. There are more things to say yet OVERALL, HPU is decent to attend as is and I enjoy it, am used to it, and yes.
