Hawaii Pacific University Reviews
School is good but DO NOT STAY AT ALOHA TOWER DORMS! They test alarms in the morning, often on breaks or weekends, the food is absolutely disgusting, and if you’re vegan good luck. I’ve also experienced the security ignore my phone call, hows that for safety? I recommend off campus housing if possible. Other than the dorms the school is quite good.
Hawaii Pacific University is a private university. Some classes are really small which really greats because it makes the professor helps all the students in the class. HPU's tuition is really expensive but they also give good grants and scholarship. The campus is downtown is not really safe because there's a lot of homeless and some security just stand and use their phone but they also have different locations on campus like the one in Kaneohe, mostly the classes there are for Nursing students. HPU is not really a party school but they have a lot of events of sports. Lastly, the dorms are not bad, it's close to a lot of restaurants and Hawaii tourist spots.
Great institution with flexible hours and varying options for courses. Student life is very accommodating with shops, study halls and most classes being within reasonable distance from living quarters. HPU is located in the epicenter of Honolulu just minutes from Waikiki beach, so good times are never far away. Professors are very adept in teaching and understanding different learning styles. Classroom sizes can vary from very large (50+)to relatively small(15-20). Overall the atmosphere is very Aloha.
