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.
