What is your overall opinion of this school?

Lots of older people walking around campus. The library is extremely dated, and the most updated facility is the Gym. The library is a public library and is small. Plus most students living on campus don't have airconditioning in their rooms so they try to go there. Students here are the laziest students I've ever seen in my life. I transferred from Orange Coast College (community) I saw 100 times more dedication from the students. The food is terrible and gives me diarrhea every time I eat there. The professors suck they go too fast through slides. The laid back culture on this campus leads to students officially not getting anything done, and just slacking off. The staff is not catering at all to the students. The campus is broken down everywhere, and old. Everything closes early on campus and there is barely any clubs or frats. The students on this campus act like its highs school still and immature like kids. I personally don't think they are going anywhere in life. LOL. I'm about to transfer out to maybe Univerisity of Alabama or Georgia for a better college environment. Some students act rich but they are just here because of the WUE. LOL. This is like a crappy community college, with fake/plastic/artificial classmates, that pretend to be cool and lie to fit in. The frats are a joke. I'm transferring ASAP!!! Nobody here takes their education seriously. Loser people. Anyways good luck!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UH Manoa can be a tremendous school! There are some great facilities on and off campus for extracurricular activities. The public transportation in the area is extensive and useful. There are always multiple excellent professors in each department. Although there are definitely aspects of the school that are underfunded, the students and faculty that make up the school are first-rate!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Honestly the resources given to students are enough to survive the first year of college. After that you learn as you go and after a year you should be okay to walk on your own. Students like me who are not doing any sports still get much attention from counselors and academic advisors to make sure we are all having a good transition from high school to college. I like attending class here, but being that I'm not into any clubs it's a little hard to make friends. Eventually you learn that in order to get anything from college you need to speak up and that's what's helped me survive my first year, coming up to up to my second year.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Hawai'i at Manoa is a beautiful campus that has a unique culture. Becuase of its location, the University of Hawai'i houses cultures of the Pacific islands, Hawai'i, and Asia. The University is located just outside of Downtown Honolulu and Waikiki area. In a short drive, you can see the many sights and popular tourists spots on the island. Although this campus has an abundance of cultures to offer incoming students, there is limited housing for students on and off campus. The Manoa area is expensive housing and unaffordable for most students. The average apartment costs on the island are upwards of $1000/month. A majority of the students attending UH at Manoa are commuter students who come from all corners of the island. Also, parking is very difficult on campus. There is one main parking structure that costs $5/day unless you purchase a parking pass. Unless you are a classified as a Senior, you will be required to have a carpool pass in order to park. Although the campus has its downfalls, the University provides many services to the LGBTQ community and has a large support system for all walks of life with in the student body. Come visit the University of Hawai'i at Manoa and see if it is the college experience for you!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UH Manoa is one of the most beautiful campuses I have ever been to. The faculty and students are always bright with excitement and the food is delicious beyond expectation. The only thing I would like besides all these things, are newer facilities and a bigger recreation center to accommodate for all the people living a healthy lifestyle.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When kids think of UH Manoa, they think that it's going to be the perfect school; because what else is better than college in Hawaii, right? The idea of UH Manoa is nothing other than perfect to most prospective students - the truth is that UH Manoa is not all up to par. The school spends it's money in the wrong places, which is frustrating because it is such a high cost to attend the university. For example, our football team is one of the lowest ranked college football teams right now but they still receive mass amounts of funding while the board just released a list of too many art programs and classes they're cutting. Our buildings are falling apart, so classes are uncomfortable and annoying to sit in - whether it's because the ceiling is falling down or the room is too hot or too cold. The school can fund campus security and give them all dodge chargers though, and for what? Why does campus security need to drive around brand new chargers? A large statue in front the engineering building on Dole Street was recently painted red for no reason. Why are we spending on things like this when there's clearly so many other problems with the school that are directly impacting students and faculty? The location of this school is beautiful, and there's nothing else like the views. The system within the school is what's corrupt.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Hawaii at Manoa is a diverse and welcoming campus. There are students from all over the world hat choose to study at UH. The campus is filled with friendly and helpful students and faculty. UH allows local students a way to stay home for college while providing an excellent education and the school attracts a lot of outsiders as well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I currently am loving my experience here at UH Manoa. Every professor I've had is a perfect balance of being stern and also approachable, which I value. Not only are the professors awesome, Hawaii has it all. When you want to get away from campus you're in paradise. If you want to stay on campus, there is always events in the courtyard of the freshmen towers or on campus. It's also been a positive culture shock because although it's still apart of the US, the culture here is very different. It has opened my eyes and allowed me to views things in a different perspective I would have never seen.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Nice school with nice people. Definitely tons to do outside of class. Housing facilities are pretty old and really need a lot of maintenance. Something (especially elevators) is always broken. Professors are generally really easy to talk to, especially if you're having an issue in class.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I could not imagine going anywhere but to this University. I am an out of state student and I find this University to be a home away from home. I find the academics to be above average and the professors are here for the students. Out side of school the there are more activities that I could even being to count. We are in a very lucky location close to a popular city. We are surrounded by many beautiful beaches and hikes that are to die for, that is saying a lot too since I am from Colorado. The resources on this campus have everything you need in order to succeed in anything you want to do. There is a huge resourceful library and a recreation center that is any workout frenzy person would love to train in. Also, there are resources on campus that help us learn about the culture here in Hawai'i. This, I believe, is one of the most important places on campus because we are living in a place with a very unique culture that not many people know about so we get to experience and learn how to change with our environment and the culture that we are living amongst.
