    Overall this school gets the job done at a decent price. Is this school worth the $? In my opinion it is because it is much cheaper than attending one of the universities (UH Manoa, UH West Oahu, etc).

    Very affordable! As long as you have a part-time job, working parents, or financial aid, this college is bang for the buck. Students have the choice to eat on or off campus, purchase books in the bookstore or anywhere else, and classes are easy to sign-up for.
