What Students Are Saying

3.41 Average Rating
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.

Hawaii Pacific University offers an environment that makes you comfortable learning about different subjects and areas because they allow you to ask questions and take the time to really make sure you understand what you are learning. The teachers here are passionate about what they teach and are always willing to stay after class or come early to help an individual in any way possible. The other students are friendly and always willing to give a hand whether its study time, down time, or carrying some stuff to your room; they are constantly willing to help out a fellow college-mate.
