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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
