At University of Hawaii-West Oahu, there's a lot of diversity and events on campus. There's a lot of people that get along and most of the professors are compassionate and caring. They want to see you pass and if there's any problems that you have, you can mostly guarantee that they'll understand. But, that doesn't stop them from being a professor. That means that you need to do your work and do the best that you can.
Review Your College
West Oahu is one of the most approachable universities on the island. Although this school is continuing to expand, I believe the content that this school offers is very beneficial, especially toward incoming lowerclassmen. On the topic of variety, it doesn't score a direct hit. In a public library, this would basically be in place of the children's section. It almost like having an alpha or beta version of a product, you don't recieve all of the features yet and you start to see the flaws almost immediately. All in all though, I believe this accomplishes its main functions. It gets the work done without all of the hoity toity glimmer other colleges tote.
This is a newer college in kapolei, but it seems like it has been around for years. The school grounds are spacious and green and they really took there environment into consideration. They respect the aina and all that comes with keeping everything clean and green. All the teachers and staff are very courteous and nice, so much aloha and help, they should be commended.
