BYU-Hawaii definitely is a honorable school with its special Honor Code. The size of school is small, which means students can have a close relationship with professors and classmates. BYU-Hawaii has students come from over 70 countries.

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.
