What Students Are Saying

3.43 Average Rating
I've been to the campus many times for various events, and overall, the campus is decent in size, appearance, and safety. Hawaii is one of the safest states and Hawaii residents are known for being neighborly and cordial, so it is easy to ask for directions if needed. Although some of the buildings need repair, the general look and feel of the campus is comfortable with the smaller streets and shady trees.
Riley from Honolulu, HI
the campus is so nice. the dorms are very clean and renovated, as are the classrooms. i love that the classes have a range of the number of students there are in a class.
