The foreign language and business classes here are taught really well and the students actually learn applicable material. The small class sizes allow for a lot of focus on areas specific to the individual students.

    I love Hawaii Pacific University because of the class availability, resources, and overall surroundings. There are always counselors and other peers to help. Lots of places to do individual or even group sesssions.

    Hawaii Pacific University is one of the best places to get an education in a friendly and small-classroom environment. Diversity and new cultures are embraced, as this is a very international school with a large percentage of the student body coming from outside of America. If you are looking for a great education in paradise, HPU has it.

    Gorgeous Kaneohe campus. Central Business District Honolulu campus. Aloha and Ohana uniting all students, if you let it.

    This University has wonderful people working at it, they're intelligent and comfortable to talk to. The school has separate campuses which if you are not patience that could be a problem. The school events are fun but hardly anybody shows up to them; there is hardly any school spirit.

    Hawaii Pacific University makes a huge effort to constantly improving their campus and student activities, but it isn't working. They suck all the money they can out of you in order to work on construction projects and it starts to feel like they actually don't have your best interests in mind. If you don't mind spending thousands of dollars that you will never receive a benefit from, then go ahead and apply.

    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.
