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 a very culturally diverse school in the heart of Oahu. There is so much to do, the food is amazing, and the aloha spirit lives here. I never expected that I would be here but so far it has been an experience to remember.

    UH Manoa is a diverse campus that has a lot of possibilities. I love my classes because everyone has an opportunity to express their opinions, and because there are people from all over the world, I get to learn many different opinions. The only thing I would change about UH Manoa is the allocation of resources, because our campus could be improved in many ways, and if the school did a better job of properly allocating the money students pay in tuition, the school could improve overall.

  • I am researching this school and have not visited the campus

    The campus seems nice in the pictures. The teachers for astronomy seem very qualified. The only problem is that it would seem that the campus isn't very safe and the expenses are very high for room and board.

    Overall the campus at Manoa is pretty nice. The dorms are very small and kind of gross. The professors are alright and the academic rigor is medium.

    If you like to be social then this school isn't for you. I'm a freshman here and will not be staying here another year. Campus life is pretty lame and the only thing I enjoy here is going to the beach.
