Katie from Kaneohe, HI
Hawaii Pacific University is one of the most unique colleges I've ever encountered. It's an attractive college to a student like me because I believe that college is more than just good grades, but also about who you know and meet to find connections with for work and for life. Hawaii Pacific University offers this unique perspective by having a rich culture of student body.
