University of Hawaii - West Oahu Reviews
This school really is up and coming! They are constantly expanding, and at the moment they have a great staff that really cares about their students. The tuition is super affordable too, which never hurts! The reason I gave four stars out of five is that there isn't really a lot of on-campus activity, and there aren't a lot of aid options for non-Hawaiians. Aside from that though, this school is like a community college that offers bachelors degress. I was going to transfer to UH Manoa, a sister school, and I found it overwhelming! UHWO is perfect for a lowkey student trying to get a great degree.
My advisors are great! They are really helpful. We’ve had multiple phone meetings and now I’m on the right track to getting my bachelors finally. I’m so excited that I was finally able to figure out my route and that we were able to get me enrolled in classes. So, I’m now enrolled and taking my first college class in nearly 13 years. I’m nervous, but I know with my academic advisor, I’ll be able to succeed and stay on track.
UH-West Oahu is a fairly new campus that is located on the west end of the island. The atmosphere at the campus is very welcoming, The staff are very helpful and provide excellent academic advising. Being part of the student body at UH West Oahu is like having an extended family. The Professors are very knowledgable in their course of study and very approachable. I truly believe that being comfortable in your learning environment plays an important part of your academic success.
