Most Helpful Review for University of Hawaii at Manoa

This school does not truly value academics. For instance, math is a requirement, but there is an easy way around it. Students can take intro to logic, a very easy class, instead. Too much of the school's money goes to athletics, and it shows with their current budget crunch and the condition of the older parts of the campus.

    UHM is a very relaxed school with the opportunity to sit back and relax on the beach, excel in school, or both at the same time!

    the university provides an excellent place for learning when you find the right professor. there are the good the bad and the ones that just don't make sense, but once you find YOUR subject learning will be awesome. i have learned a lot from this college and have changed a lot, i appreciate this nurturing environment and hope to obtain the skill i need for the future.

    There are lots of helpful resources all around the campus. Go to the library (best is Sinclair Library) to do some homework, study, or just simply relax! As students, remember to stay on track with your homeworks, it is really easy to fall behind the lecture content/course content.

    The school is a relaxed, positive environment with academic requirement inconsistencies between departments. The sciences are tough, well-taught classes. The arts are very loose.

    UH Manoa has a beautiful and diverse campus. They are very athletic based and encourage physical exercise and participation in intramural sports.The classes that I have taken so far have professors that are willing to help you succeed in the course.

    UH Manoa is a great school for those of you going into Biology or Business. They have great research and career opportunities and the faculty are always willing to help you succeed. This school needs some work with organization though.
