Brigham Young University Hawaii is a great place to study. I love everything about it! I love it because it provides the students everything they needed.They are not concern only for the student's academics but they are also concern for their spiritual learning. They care about you and they want you to succeed in life. They will build your character to become the best person you can ever be. They want you to become better providers to your family as well leaders in your country as you step out of their University.The professors are great too and they will help you in anyway they can. They know the students name pretty well. Also, it is a very diverse school with lots of international students. Most of the population is international students. It gives the students the opportunity to associate with different cultures, learn experiences from them and meet students from all over the world.

My experience here has been nothing but amazing and spectacular. Although I'm not Mormon, everybody here is so friendly and open-minded. Not only that, the environment here is very conducive for learning. The school population is made up of diverse backgrounds with people from all over the world, especially from the Polynesian islands and Asia. With that, I have learned so much about other different cultures. The school also provides a safe living environment since alcohol, drugs and smoking is strictly prohibited here along with gender-allocated dormitories which prevents any sexual misconducts from happening here. Crime rate is low in the area. There are also a few beaches around the area which are all within walking distance and this provides leisure time and convenience for getting away from stress for a while.
BYU-Hawaii is is set on a beautiful campus tucked away from the crowds that plague much of Oahu. Located on the North Shore, it hugs the sea and nearby mountains, with many beaches and waterfalls within walking distance.

As for academics, class sizes are generally small and professors work hard to get to know students on an individual basis. The student body itself is rather small, less than 3,000 total, but very diverse. More than 70 countries are represented at the school, which gives students the opportunity to learn from many different cultures.

The school is a church funded institution, sponsored by the LDS Church and students are expected to abide by it's honor code. However, the rules at this school seem to be more relaxed than those of other church schools.

The Polynesian Culture Center is right next door and is a major tourist attraction that receives visitors from all over the world. It is mostly run by students at BYUH.
