Hawaii Pacific University Reviews
Review Hawaii Pacific University
Hawaii Pacific University offers a military campus program for all military members and their families. It allows them to take 8 week classes on base at a discounted rate. This was a great opportunity for me to get through my general education requirements before starting my bachelors degree. My professors and classes have all been fine, but I would not recommend this college to other students if they have other options. There is a lot of disorganization and confusion between staff members at Hawaii Pacific University which causes a lot of unnecessary stress and wasted time for students. For how much students pay for tuition I expected better.
The close-knit English department is probably my favorite part about this college. The professors and faculty (especially the 5th floor librarians) are extremely helpful and genuinely interested in your well-being, interests, and success. The curriculum is challenging and thought-provoking--something I think current and future generations will depend on to help ask and answer questions about the coming cultural shifts. One suggestion for improvement would be on the process of advising. I personally did not know I had a recent change in advisers and would like to have been kept up-to-date on that.
Living in Hawaii is a dream, but going to school here is something no one could ever think of happening. Although it is beautiful, HPU doesn't offer much of a University campus, neither does it offer parking for students in the downtown location. The waterfront lofts are amazing and a great first-year dorming experience but there is currently no meal plan for students so we are expected to buy our own groceries throughout the school year. As prices are high due to tourism in Hawaii, there is a growing homeless population here on Oahu and in downtown Honolulu, where HPU's campus is located. The local area is mostly a business district but once you drive out a few mins you see the real beauty of Hawaii, it is turquoise waters and ever friendly locals. My favorite part of attending HPU, beside living in Hawaii, would have to be the diversity on our campus. You meet people who become life long friends from countries you would never have imagined.
