I love this school. Not only are the faculty loving and kind, but the students on campus too share that aloha spirit for everyone! This is a very tight knit community, so even new students with no connection to BYU-H can easily make themselves at home. Not only that, but their major program helps create well-rounded degrees for students who graduate from here, setting them up for a future of success.
I enjoy campus life there, especially the scenery. Everything is close by and there are ways to get around off campus if you want to go shopping for anything. There is a lot of international students attending, so it's nice to see other cultures attending.
BYU H gives you the best experience you could ask for from a college. The PCC allows you to understand the Hawaiian culture and to get a better understanding. You also get the amazing ocean and the amazing beaches. There are beautiful hikes within minutes of the campus. The professors are easy to get in contact with because the school isn't as large as most universities. It is an amazing University that I highly recommend to apply for.
I love that the campus id diverse with students from different countries. The student body consists of only 2k to 3k students which gives the opportunity to get to know most of them. I love that the classes are smaller and easy to interact with professors and students. The cultural activities are lit especially the culture night with people dancing and representing their own cultures along with food fest and semester activities by seasiders.
I love BYUH, love the muti culture mix, people are super friendly here, and it is a dream school. since I enrolled during the pandemic I didn't get to know a lot of the people, but I have from class meetings, I could tell people are very friendly. and the muti culture style fits me perfectly because I'm also from a freight counrty, I can find people have the same interest as me.
One of the many things I like about BYUH is the fact that the student body is very diverse with more than 70 countries well represented. This diversity allows student to be exposed to a world class view of ideas in academia.
Choosing to attend this college has been one of the worst decisions I've made in my life. There is a general feeling that the campus is being run by students (as opposed to mature, responsible, experienced faculty). You are inevitably going to be treated like a child if you live on campus, as is evident by the various rules, curfews, codes, etc. The level of communication between students and employees is overall incompetent (they fail to email you back within a timely manner, they really don't know how to fix the innumerable technical problems you will experiences, and no one really knows why the school is as awful as it is. Your class may be an absolute mess if you gamble on a garbage instructor. Online classes are probably one of the worst things anyone will ever experience with this school, and it's very difficult to navigate their websites. If I could choose between attending this college for another two years, and taking classes from a monkey, I would choose the latter.
One of the worst and most disorganized experiences of my academic career. Do not take online classes through this college, do not apply to this school during the pandemic, and overall, my recommendation would be to just not attend this school at all because you'll probably end up wasting your time and your money.
The BYUH campus has a lot of good things about it but it is in need of some changes. Because BYUH caters to international students over half the students are from other countries. This provides opportunities to make connections with different countries and to learn about different cultures. Because of the diversity, it is a good place to start developing career pans after college if you want to work internationally. One of the things the BYUH campus can work on is diversifying the staff and teachers. Because the school is in the United States the teachers are mostly US citizens. This is limiting in the number of international exposure students can receive in such a diverse school, but it also creates a western-style thinking bias. This creates some difficulty for international students, because most of them are going to return to their home countries, and if they have learned how to perform but only in a western style of work then they might not have the best education for them.
Overall, school is great. Nice and safe campus. Professors and people are friendly. However, sport is left behind. It should be more active and important part of student life. Cafeteria meal blocks are expensive but doesn't worth the price at all. Not many variety of food and hardly offer salad, fruit or healthy food. Vegetarians might have hard time.
It's been good actually. I enjoyed it last 2 semesters. Professors should give students enough time at least for a week to familiarize with course structure and materials. Please don't push so hard at the beginning. They will mess up.
it was so awesome I was able to make so many friends and be surrounded by people with similar visions and goals.
I still haven't done online classes here but I have heard that it is very manageable form my friends.
The teachers are amazing and understand that this is a tough time! They are here for you and do their best to make sure that you understand what is being taught! They give more time if needed and are always open for zoom calls.
The system that we are using is exquisite. Even though I do prefer face to face than online. The staff and faculty are doing their very best to meet our needs.
I love the diversity in this school. You learn of so many different cultures and discover countries that you never knew existed. The Aloha Spirit is evident on campus wherever you go, with smiles that enlighten your day. Due to COVID, campus is closed but you still feel the aloha spirit radiating through your zoom calls and virtual meetings. There is pretty much nothing I would change about this school, for it makes you feel at home.
With the new learning style due to the outbreak of COVID-19, they've helped take a lot of stress off our shoulders with being understanding and flexible. Super grateful for staff members that help make an getting an education less of a burden and stress!
