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.

    UH Manoa is about a 8/10. UH has a great business school! There can be some amazing professors and then there are some that shouldn't even be teaching because they are unorganized.

    Difficult college to graduate from in four years because of the way the academic programs are set up as well as the schedule of courses. It's better to attend community colleges on the island, before transferring into the university. Only trust this university with basic majors because they do downsize departments and your major can get cut.

    I've been to the campus many times for various events, and overall, the campus is decent in size, appearance, and safety. Hawaii is one of the safest states and Hawaii residents are known for being neighborly and cordial, so it is easy to ask for directions if needed. Although some of the buildings need repair, the general look and feel of the campus is comfortable with the smaller streets and shady trees.

    I love the spirit and atmosphere of the school. The academic programs seem to have something for everyone. Living in hawaii for 4 years sounds perfect to me.

    The school is alright, but some of the lecture halls need updating (they are trying to upkeep it with the constant renovations and remodeling though). Teachers are great and easy to get to know. The school is centrally located to the park, beach, and city area of town.

    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!

    UH allows for an extremely unique college experience, especially for out of state students. The range of majors and opportunities that the campus offers make for great personalized education. Students, faculty, location, extracurricular activites and academics make UH an incredibly unique and outstanding place to study.

    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.
