Great faculty and student life. The professors really care about your education and want you to succeed. The university provides many activities for the students as well as encourages student participation in campus wide activities and events.
I have loved being at student at BYUH. It is a small campus but the area and the student body have a lot to offer. Strong LDS culture and values.
Byu Hawai'i campus is one of the most, if not the most diverse college's in the world. Students from all over the world, dozens of countries it's not hard to fall in love with BYUH. The campus is small but the education you receive and life in Hawai'i is something that you will talk about for the rest of your life. Truly an unforgettable experience.

BYU-Hawaii offers a small student to faculty ratio that leads to a higher learning than at other universities. The Peacebuilding program is one of a kind and should be a reason to attend.
I love it here. I love my classmates and the professors. This school is so diverse and I have the opportunity to become more familiar with different cultures. Because this school has a very small student body, I have had so many experiences I wouldn't have at a large university. I have worked as a tutor for math as well as physics, participated in intramurals, and stay active in my church.
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.
I absolutely love this school. What I enjoy most is how incredible the professors are. They are highly experienced in their field and genuinely care about each student. It is a smaller campus so the classes are smaller allowing you to have personal relationships with them. They are more than willing to do whatever it takes to help you succeed.
It was amazing! The professors are understanding and want what is best for you. It is a very intimate setting with loads of stuff to do for fun!
Small school, so you get to know the professors. Better for one on one help, less struggling in college. More communication between professor and student
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.
Besides the fact that it is located in paradise, BYUH is a college that is dedicated to giving their students the best possible experience. I love how diverse this school is. The opportunities and experiences are endless and I wouldn't change my experiences here for the world.
I love the diversity here on campus. People come from all over the world to study here and the programs and student involvement encourage growth and secular excellence.
So good! Teachers are very personable and willing to help. Good on campus resources for academic help. Good atmosphere, close to the beach, nice people.
It has been a great experience applying for and getting excepted to byu Hawaii. It's an awesome campus with a dedicated staff and student body. Great town.
BYU is a great and welcoming school. It is so cool to see such a melting pot of cultures and backgrounds all on one campus.
I loved going to BYU-Hawaii. I miss it terribly and would go back in an instance. The location made it amazing. The faculty was great, although the staff wasn't the best. The diversity was incredible and the opportunities are amazing as well. I love all the different opportunities they give you as a student there, both to learn from different cultures and to grow as a person.
BYUH is a great school! The classes are smaller and the diversity among the students is amazing! I love being here!

Great student body, healthy atmosphere and helpful classes and teachers. Community also is a good place to live, though it would be nice to have some more school sports opportunities.
BYU Hawaii is a wonderful university full of culture, experience, and amazing faculty. It is truly a unique college experience that will expand your horizons and make you feel like part of something bigger than yourself.
The fact that you get to live in Hawaii is a great reason to go to this school. Beaches are within short driving distance, and it's a great way to rewind after classes and papers. The area is pretty dead at night, so don't expect night life. The town is very safe but campus is really tiny. Walking around campus you will see students from everywhere around the world and it's a bonus. Academics are okay, not great but definitely not bad. If you're going into Graphic Design, don't pick this school because their program is honestly terrible.
