My overall opinion is that your experience with this school is what you make it. You can have a good time and an education at this school but you just have to be willing to put yourself out there, meet new people and be responsible with your class work.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Hawaii at Hilo is in approximately the center of the town, and it takes advantage of all that Hilo has to offer. UHH is much smaller than its sister college, Manoa, but this is what makes UHH unique. The University of Hawaii at Hilo doesn’t seem like a “classical” American college. UHH is a perfect example of how heart, hard work, and resilience can affect a student body. Every student here is Ohana (family). The family extends to each branch of the college. The deans strive to keep instructors and faculty connected. Instructors work diligently and put in time and effort that exceeds expectations. The feeling of unity weighs just as heavily in the warm air as the humidity. UH Hilo isn’t a “party” school, but sometimes it doesn’t even seem like school. As I partake in fun excursions and gain hands-on experience here, I feel like I part of a family. And I’ve loved every minute of it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Hilo is a much smaller size in comparison to UH Manoa but maintains a small community vibe with a large variety of options. Hilo is perhaps the best school for Hawaiian Studies and the source of what is considered the Hawaiian renaissance, which has impacted Hawaii for decades to come. The campus is uniquely multi-cultural and features a lot of study abroad students from international and national places. Although it is not nearly as active as a city based college, there's a lot to do if someone is willing to look for it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love it! UHH Is definitely a one of a kind place where all are welcome and accepted! Class sizes at UHH are a max of 70 studens, but that is usually only in the big lecures like Chemsitry. On average, classes are no more than 30 students, which allows every student to ask questions and recieve clarification if they are confused. Also, because the class sizes are so small, especually for lab, students get hands on expierence almost every day! The Marine Science Department, in particular, gives their students so much field work expierence that they do not need an internship to get a job or into graduate school. In addition to that, the teachers are MORE than willing to help you out! In fact they want each of their students to come visit them in their offices when ever the they need help on an assignment or if they need academic advisingBeing one of the most culturally diverse campuses in the country, UHH offers endless opportunities to learn about others from different parts of the world. Over all, UHH is a place that fosters academic and personal growth and encourages students to be the very best that they can be!

I think UH Hilo is a perfect school for anyone who wants the college experience in a safe environment. The teachers are more than willing to help students, campus activities are really fun, and there is free food from time to time which is also nice.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Hawaii at Hilo is actually quite different than what I expected. Sure, the hallways and walkways can be crowded from time to time, when students are hurrying to their next class, but it's an overall large campus, The students come from many backgrounds (you'd be surprised as to how many come from out of state and country) and the professors also seem to hail from another state, sometimes even other countries. The cafeteria food is far more delicious than what it was made out to be (and you can also watch some of the cooks actually make your food), and the service is amazing. The staff are friendly, and if you ever need someone to talk to, they're there for both students and other staff members as well. It's a generally, well diverse, and quite amazing university. I'm glad and appreciative for the experience I gained from attending this university.
