It is a great and affordable school. I predict in the future years to come, it will be a larger institution with lots of years of experience to serve the upcoming generation of students. The school is constantly growing and always finding ways to create a better environment for students in and outside of the classroom.
I have enjoyed being a student at University of Hawaii- West Oahu. I am in my second year and almost every faculty I've worked with is willing to go above and beyond to really help you succeed, as long as you're communicating with them. Tons of programs and assistance available for those who need it and look for it.
I think that UHWO is a great school! It is so brand new which makes learning very enjoyable. The library is beautiful and a great space to study. Parking also is great because there is no parking fee and parking never runs out. However, I do wish the UHWO had better/more extracurricular activities and that the extracurricular activities/opportunities were better advertised.
I love the friendly environment and the vibe that I get from the staff, students, and professors. Although I have just visited the campus, I would consider the University of Hawai'i-West Oahu to be one of my top choices for college. I believe that this college can help me in the long run.

Considering what I know now about college life and making the transition from high school student to college student things currently would have been different. Coming from a small town I would advise students to attend community college first before attending a university away from their home. This will help with the transition process from being dependent students to independent students. Also, being focused and dedicated as well as being prepared for the college life is a must. You can easily be distracted from your goals in life.
I think a person that is eager to learn and dedicated in their studies would do well at this school.
The best thing about my school is the personalities of each person in this campus from faculties, custodians, proffesors and students. The reason is because they are very kind and helpful especially if you're a new student and fresh meat in college life. They are caring and cool to be around with, it seems like you're home and safe when your with them.
It may be small and new but everyone is nice and willing to help you succeed.
The students are friendly, hardworking, often working multiple jobs and/or taking on many courses.
great environment, friendly staff, great location
There are some/few professors who seem to be slacking. They are really easy A's and although they know their material, they have trouble teaching it.
I don't believe anyone should be denied the opportunity to attend any school based upon their character, race, sexual orientation, religion or gender.
Waiting for the new campus to be built. The new campus designs are beatiful.
Initially, UHWO caught my attention because tuition is cheaper than UHManoa and parking is free. I always wanted to attend a private school/college but since I do not have a lot of funds to pay for college I am unable to do so. Another reason why I chose to attend UHWO was because they focus in professional studies and that is something that I am interested in. I also enjoy the small class sizes which provide me with the capability for my instructor to know me personally, and provide in depth class discussions.
I wish I should have known other conselors to help me chose classes my first year. I think it would have made a huge difference because the conselor I asked helped from didn't help me as much as I expected. She didn't give me any advice on what classes I should take and what teachers i should take classes under.
I brag most about the small class size. I like the small class size because its easier to interact with the professor and its easier for me to learn and consetrate more.
