    When one gets there they will know that West Oahu is a new school because of its sheer size (very small). However the campus and classrooms are very unique and all outfitted with state-of-the-art technology. As the cheapest four-year university in Hawaii, West Oahu does provide a lot for the little students have to give.

    University of Hawai'i at West Oahu, the home of the Pueo, owl is a great school to attend. The students and professors are really friendly, and lenient. The administration are really helpful, but for the administration to process paper work for oneself is time consuming (so don't expect an update right away). This school is really clean, and still maturing for many more students to enroll, so it's not too late. Think about one's plans, one's future, and one's career, it is up to one to make better of one's self.

    If we're talking about tuition, I'd say yes, you get the full potential of what you're paying for. It's one of the cheaper universities that I know of, and I think they're programs are fantastic. Our student Government has A LOT in store for the future and I can't wait to see how it rolls out.
