Most Helpful Review for University of Hawaii Maui College
  • Category: Am learning a lot

I did learn a lot during my first semester here, but I feel that the teaching could be improved. It seems like some of the teachers come to class, teach, and are waiting for it to be over with. The interaction with students are not as strong as it should be. I know this is not high school, but having a teacher that has a bit of an attitude toward their students, does not really help in a learning environment.

    It's all about what teacher you get. Some of them are really good and should be teaching at a higher-end institution, and some seem uninformed on their subjects. The campus itself doesn't feel overcrowded by buildings, and the school is transitioning towards greener programs. The experience of going there was worth having.

    University of Hawaii at Maui College has a very open environment for students of all races, ages, and sexual orientations. It has a variety of computer labs and student learning centers for students with limited schedules. Tuition is also, generally, cheap compared to other schools and they offer financial aid for students in need.

    There is a wide range of types of people in terms of age and ethnicity. The teachers and instructors want you to succeed and care about your education. Fairly small school compared to other colleges, about 4000-5000 students.

    It's a great starter school. There are so many options here for changing your career path, and the school is growing every semester. They even have a new astronomy observatory on campus.

    I feel the education at the University of Hawaii Maui College is excellent. I enjoy how the instructors help promote learning the content by having us apply what we learn in simulation labs, as well as, field course work (i.e. community health fairs, assisted living facilities). The atmosphere is relaxed and the instructors encourage communication and feedback.

    I love the convenience of being able to attend school on the island that I reside. I love the convenience of the online classes that the college offers. I would love if night classes started at 7pm and if weekend classes would become available.

    It is a very culturally diverse atmosphere where you can meet people from all over the world. Most of the teachers are passionate about what they are teaching and there to help students when needed. This school is in a great location and has a great environment and look; it is very well kept.
