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.
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.
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.
