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.
Review Brigham Young University - Hawaii
BYU-Hawaii is a very unique experience. There is no other college in the world that has an amusement park next to it, or has students representing over 70 different countries in the world. The most amazing thing to do here is to learn and live other people's cultures with them, especially with the Polynesian Cultural Center so close by. The neighborhood is extremely friendly, people are very tight knit, and the overall community is unlike any other place in the world. I love learning at BYU-H. However, the reason I rate it 3 stars is because of location and the low quality of the housing and the cafeteria, as well as the old campus. If the facilities could keep up, this school would be so much more enjoyable. It is also in the country side of Hawaii, so to get to any town, it takes at least 40 minutes by car.
Living in Hawaii and going to school has been an adventure. At first it was hard to manage time between classes and going to the beach; but you learn pretty fast. Smaller class sizes allow for better relationships and communication between you and your professors. And a smaller campus is nice because everything is close and within walking distances, and is close to the beach which is a plus. BYU-Hawaii is unique in that there are students from over 70 different countries here. Meeting people from all over the world and .learning more about their culture and traditions has been really fun. Although the tuition is relatively cheap, it is very expensive to live in Hawaii which is why I would not choose to come to this school again if I had to do it all over again. Other than the cost, I have had a great time here at Hawaii!
