Founded and operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Brigham Young University-Hawaii is a private university that integrates secular and spiritual learning. A majority of students are members of the LDS Church and members pay less tuition than non-church affiliated students. Rated as having a “selective” admissions process, BYU-Hawaii is also listed at #18 in Regional Colleges West by U.S. News & World Report. All students adhere to an honor code that prohibits extramarital sex, alcohol, and drugs and promotes academic honesty.
There is an opportunity for a close relationship between instructor and pupil. It is a positive and healthy atmosphere. It is culturally diverse and there are plenty of opportunities to familiarize yourself with the rest of the world without even leaving campus.

Excellent school, plenty of great education environment. Small school means better attention from teachers and faculty. Beaches.
