I have really enjoyed my time at HIU. The sense of community this school provides is unparalleled in my experience. Each year there are tangible improvements to the student's lives.

If I could make my decision all over again, I would choose HIU all over again because it is an amazing school. The professors are great and always willing to go out of his or her way to help someone in need. The area is nice and the people are very welcoming.
