What Students Are Saying

3.41 Average Rating
It is good to have friends and family out here because there are not much to activities to do. The good thing is that you can focus more on your studies.
Desiree from Hilo, HI
Don't fall behind in class work. And always study for the next test.
Shantel from Hilo, HI
Send all paperwork as soon as possible because the processing of it tends to take longer than necessary.
Cristina from Woodland, CA
Be prepared for a different lifestyle than you may be used to. Before I could afford my first car, I walked everywhere.
lindsay from Great Falls, MT
Enjoy life-simple as that! Stress free is the way to be. Try your best not to procrastinate because procrastination is the thief of time. Live your life to the fullest and do everything you have always wanted to do. Be outgoing and live a lifestyle that will benefit you in the future! Show your appreciation for others. Be genuine and friendly and everything you work on do it to the best of your ability. Keep a smile on your face and be who you are.

Come to UH Hilo!
Devin from Palmer, AK
Don't think it's all fun and games... just because you're coming to Hawaii.
BUT -- if you do choose UH Hilo , you won't be disappointed.
It's a very small school... less than 5,000 Undergraduate students.
You can't 'hide' in a small school...everybody knows everybody...
this is an awesome home away from home.
CONNOR from SAN MATEO, CA
If you are from the mainland, make sure this is where you really want to go. I have seen students get what I call isolation fever. This campus is located on the Big Island and it is very big, but you have to forget you are on an island. Housing off campus is affordable, but staple food is not. Yes, milk and bread are very expensive, so you have to shop around. Be careful buying local produce that is not thoroughly washed. If in doubt, stick to the national chains (Target, Walmart, and Safeway). Tuition is affordable and the most of the 99% of the professors are pro student success.
Ruby from Crescent City, CA
meet new people and join clubs.
expand your mind thinking because uh-hilo had alot to offer.
hilo itself has alot to offer too; beaches, visiting active lava, etc.
Aiko from Hilo, HI
Get educated about campus and about the different major and minor degrees that this school has to offer. Get educated about the dorms and about the meal plan. Also get educated about Hilo town because you will need a car to go places, the bus doesn't go everywhere.
