University of Hawaii at Manoa Reviews
I love the campus atmosphere here! The people are friendly and the weather is obviously beautiful! Only thing is the housing is worn down and old and the cost of living in Hawaii is extremely high. Other than that I love the social science department and the wide range of interesting classes that are included here. I know that viewpoints of the campus are conflicted. It just depends on your major and what you are looking for in a campus. UH is not a big Greek school, but you can definitely find entertainment in the city of Honolulu and events sponsored by the school or the few Greek fraternities that they do have.
Living in Hawaii is an experience all on its own, but for me it was enjoyable for about a month. Everything is expensive and being a young white female, I could only go certain places by myself. Bus system is great, but takes about 2 hours to get to the airport or to any other beaches besides Waikiki or Ala Moana. There is hardly any parking anywhere if you want to bring a car to the island. Dorms are old and bedbugs are a huge issue. Campus was older but very lush and green. There are only two dining halls, a campus food court, a Starbucks, and a Jamba Juice; the food got old and redundant very quickly and there was rarely anything healthy on the menu! Students get roughly 7-8 emails a week about moped/car thefts and break-ins. Overall, I loved it for about two months, but I realized how hard it is to make it by over there with little to no money and no real independence. I was ready to move to a nicer, more modern campus after one semester.
Absolutely love this school! I was originally not set on coming here, but I am so glad that I did. The support for students is great and so far I have had amazing professors and met a lot of friendly people. I would be happier if the campus were nicer, but everything else makes up for that. Definitely no regrets!
