University of Hawaii at Manoa Reviews
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 student's 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. Like everything there could always be room to improve on different areas of the school such as classroom resources, yet I do think they are heading in that direction.
From the first moment I stepped on to the UH campus, I knew it was going to become my home away from home. Almost immediately, you can feel the positive vibes and buzz of happy students around the campus. UH works hard to put on events for their students and to help them become more acclimated to college life. You can definitely feel the aloha on the campus. The food choices are really diverse as there are many places in campus center, and even around or down the street. Some of the buildings are run down, but UH is always looking to improve their campuses. The dorms could use some renovation, but other than that, I have enjoyed my time at UH very much!
My overall experience at University of Hawaii at Manoa was good. Most professors are very knowledgable and passionate about their subject mater and offer help when needed. This university also offers a lot of volunteer opportunities to help the community and practice Hawaiian traditions such as maintaining/building Lo'i patches (there are several on campus). In summary, I liked how involved the school is in student services and their credible faculty. Some areas of improvement could be in providing additional resources such as more private study rooms in the Hamilton Library, healthy food options, and improving lower campus by building a library or an area to study as there is no kind of building/facility for students except for athletes.
