University of Hawaii at Manoa Reviews

All Categories
The Good: Excellent distance learning for students who live off island! Professors and school staff are friendly and supportive. Beaches are close by for breaks.
The Bad: Laulima website used by almost every professor crashes often and can cramp your style in a major way so work should be turned in well before deadlines to avoid this. Also, the beaches can eat up your entire day so maybe study first.
The Ugly: Tuition is insane. Highly recommend finding places to donate plasma/blood/etc or do some busking to help with tuition. If tuition doesn't scare you, the housing costs will for sure. Also, sunburns from napping at the beach -because midterms kept you up all night are brutal.

My initial experience with the University of Hawaii was great! They offer so many clubs, activities, and events throughout the semesters. At UHM, they also offer counseling to help you figure out your classes and opportunities for your major. Because I was a freshman last year they require that first year students dorm together which wasn't the best living conditions, but I still made a lot of friends in my tower and bonded well with my randomly assigned roommate.
The University of Hawaii at Manoa is a very diverse and welcoming campus. My experience here so far has been wonderful as it offers all the courses I need to stay on track as I pursue my future career goals. Also, there are tons of recreational activities, support groups, and resources available on campus. I'm glad I made the decision to attend this university!
