Don’t come for the school, come for the island. A lot of the students here are people who can’t leave home due to relational or family reasons. Other people are just people who love to surf and skate. Because of that, the professors tend not to be self absorbed and most are out to save you money.
It is a good school to start from then to branch off. It is a safe campus and the whole feeling of having a family with the students and staff. There is always an event going on in a week. During finals and midterms there is a coffee and bagel station free for students. The class rooms are fairly small and the teachers really do care about you. Shopping is okay here but come on we are in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and have beautiful beaches. We mostly spend our free time out in nature.
My overall opinion of my school is that it does provide a good stepping stone into the next phase of my life, however, like any school, there are a few teachers who could help out their students a little more. The people here are very helpful and, when asked, go the extra mile to give the correct information and try their hardest for a better life.
It is a lovely place to begin your college journey. The island is beautiful and the city of Kahului is a perfect location for this community college. Since it is the only college of any type on the island of Maui, the fact that it is so progressive and well-maintained is very commendable.
The University of Hawaii Maui College is a great place to complete foundation classes and get a better view of the different majors and opportunities that are ahead in your academic career. Science classes are limited, however if you stick to your counselor's advice and the game plan you can complete a lot of core classes. There are many tutoring opportunities and ways to get help for any situation.
This is a great community college to start off with. I recommend doing at least 2 years to have continued education after high school. UHMC is very resourceful when it comes to helping out students from all walks of life and just the vibe on campus makes you feel that you’re wanted there and the staff is very helpful to all students.
