Hawaii Pacific University is a private institution and the largest in the central Pacific. There are two campuses, one located in Honolulu and the other Hawaii Loa. HPU also has a research facility called The Oceanic Institute, which researches sustainable aquaculture technologies. This selective institution is listed among the “Best Western Colleges” list by The Princeton Review.
Hawaii Pacific University offers an environment that makes you comfortable learning about different subjects and areas because they allow you to ask questions and take the time to really make sure you understand what you are learning. The teachers here are passionate about what they teach and are always willing to stay after class or come early to help an individual in any way possible. The other students are friendly and always willing to give a hand whether its study time, down time, or carrying some stuff to your room; they are constantly willing to help out a fellow college-mate.

The small classroom sizes at HPU are great. As a student, you aren't just a nobody in a sink-or-swim lecture class. Instead, the instructors are always there to help you out and answer any questions.
