The University of Hawaii at Hilo is a public institution that specializes in Hawaiian studies, volcanology, astronomy, and marine science. It was the first institution in the nation to grant a Masters of Arts in Hawaiian Language and Literature. The university houses several research centers, including USDA Pacific Basin- Agricultural Research Center, the ‘Imiloa Astronomy Center of Hawaii, and the East Asian Observatory. Psychology, pharmacy studies, and kinesiology and exercise science are the most popular majors among undergraduates.
It's a medium-sized campus with the community college just down the road. Most of the faculty and staff have you in mind. The financial aid office is always willing to help you pay for school.

The University of Hawaii at Hilo is a great campus if you aren't into large class sizes. All of my professors take a vested interest in my academic development, providing assistance and encouragement. UHH truly gives you a college experience that you won't find anywhere else, and you won't soon forget.
