I absolutely loved my experience here! It had smaller classes, which meant that the professors were better able to connect with the students, and I felt that they wanted to get to know us, our challenges and how to best help us succeed as students. The campus itself is beautiful and provides many places to study, inside or outside in the beauty of Hawaii. Living on campus is nice because there is a small shopping strip about 20 minutes away, so it’s the best of both worlds. A short walk to and from class, and work if you work on campus, as well as a short walk to local off campus shopping facilities. There is also a bus system that is fairly cheap if one wants to explore the island or travel to larger shopping facilities like Walmart. One of my favorite things is the diversity of the students body. I could walk down the main hallway of the main building and hear many different languages, which was amazing!

Byu Hawaii is a dream come true.
I love! It is a safe, honest, happy university that really cares about your success. It also has a large number of foreign students, which makes it special and I can call it from my home.
Coming here was not easy, nor fast, that's why I take advantage every day and I appreciate this opportunity to be here.
This is my first semester, and because of being the first, recently arrived in Hawaii and several expenses, I am applying for this scholarship that would help me to settle down and sleep peacefully.
ByuHawaii offers several scholarships, but it is after the first semester.
I will be very grateful to be lucky to win it.
Thank you for the opportunity!
I know that education is important and of great value.
Brigham Young University Hawaii is an incredible university. The atmosphere is very welcoming and there is a rich amount of diversity among the students and staff who attend. The location is in a small community that is safe and beautiful! I love that the university is small because students have the opportunity to develop more of a personal relationship with teachers. The motto of the university is “Enter to learn, and go forth to serve.” I am reminded of this often and it is the foundation of my motivation.
