Hawaii Pacific University Reviews
Love this college! They have so much to offer and the teachers are incredible.The class ration is an average 14 to 1, which I really prefer than a lecture hall filled with 100 students. HPU also has great resources for job opportunities post college.
I like the average amount about of people in the class. Its the same as normal classes in which i can make some friends and sometimes socialize with the teachers. I don’t enjoy the location of the area because the classes are a little far from each other making us walk with strangers among us daily. It doesnt seem safe, but thankfully there are some securities placed in different areas that we can easily go to and they are able to escort us anywhere we feel unsafe.
I've only just started at HPU but so far, I am very satisfied with my experience. As a graduate student, the class size is small which provides more opportunities to engage in class lecture and speak with the professor. The professors are well-educated and knowledgeable about the course material. The classrooms are small but equipped with everything you need. The campus is safe with security guards standing by. You must pay for parking, but there is meter parking near by that works well for graduate students with class in the evenings. But as an undergrad, parking could be an issue. The area is also infested with older, homeless people that can sometimes get awkward, but I've never felt unsafe.
