University of Hawaiʻi is a great school with wonderful professors and a wide variety of students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of the University of Hawaii at Hilo is that is a good sized school that offers many opportunities to a wide range of students. One thing that I truly enjoy about this University is that it gives me a sense of "home away from home" feeling. Coming to school that is very far from friends and family was a huge change but this school has allowed me to grow and truly find my aspirations of what I want to do with my future. The atmosphere is really great and I think that the community itself is welcoming which allows students to feel comfortable and grow. The fact that the school is very diverse allows others to dive into different cultures to learn something new which I believe is hard to find at other Universities. The staff and counselors are helpful and are willing to give office hours if anyone needs them. I am thankful to attend a University is diverse in culture, the people are nice and welcoming, and overall I feel that after I graduate the goals I had for myself will be achieved.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a small school in a somewhat rural area. This allows the faculty and students to have a lot of connections; however the school does not have much money so it can be difficult to get classes sometimes. Additionally, there is not much school spirit at this school; it has more of a community college feel to it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a good school. It is very culturally diverse, I like how the school emphasizes on sustainability and conservation. I also enjoy how the school provides activities for every students. The only thing that I’d suggest they change is bring down housing price, housing is too expensive especially with the meal plan.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that this college is very well diverse place. Everyone is extremely kind and helpful, also, the classes here are pretty small (The most being about a little over 100). Since it is the big island, other than college there are many waterfalls and secret beaches to explore as well that ed adventures would be happy to take you to :) Overall, I highly recommend attending!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Hawaii at Hilo is a great school with great students. This school is heavily, culturally-diverse; from the variety of foods, different ethnics and races, and much more. In addition, people here are accepting and welcoming of one another. They possess the "aloha spirit", or in other words, the existence of positive feelings and thoughts, that radiate among others.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a good campus to begin your college career. I wouldn’t suggest finishing a masters or doctorate from University of Hawaii at Hilo. Class sizes are small so you can get to know the professor if you want to. Most professors care about student learning but there are some that only care about their paycheck.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a current student of UH Hilo, living on campus in the Kauanoe dorms. I love this school, and there is usually a lot to do here on campus, but it is often hard to find things to do if you do not have a car. The local beaches, rivers and hiking trails are great, but you need a car or uber to get there. As it is a small school, everyone pretty much knows each other. There are lots of clubs and other extracurricular activities to participate in.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

UH Hilo has a limited cultural openness for minorities from outside of the pacific islands, and lacks representation from non-local minorities. There is a lot of support and representation for Pacific Islander and native Hawaiian students, but not for black or latino people. UH Hilo claims to be a very diverse school, but I have not seen one Hispanic, Middle Eastern, Black, or Native American faculty member.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love UH Hilo, here the partying isnʻt the main thing we focus on. We all have a big drive and focus on our majors, classes, and homework. On-campus, there are a lot of resources for all students, especially the native Hawaiian students. We have access to our professors 24/7 and I love how close the students are with the professors and other campus employees.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Hawaii, Hilo is a great school to attend if you want to enjoy Hawaii but also go to school. The education is great here and so is the professors. I wish they worked on the dorms to make it look more homey. The dorm bathrooms are gross! The student life center is a great place to be at during your spare time. I wish they made the food better also, the campus center food is way better.
