Wayland Baptist University Hawaii is a great and convenient place for me to go to school. The classes are very intimate and the teachers are very thorough in their teaching. Most of the students are older and have a military background. Although I am one of the youngest students there, there are some that are even younger. This is because my school offers a jump start program where kids in high school can start their college classes. I think it is better to have an older crowed of students because they are serious about their education and are mature. I really have enjoyed this school.

I have am confident in the quality of my degree from this school. However, I would like to have more support in job/intern prospects that they could offer. I know that recently they decided to start an alumni network because the campus is somewhat new and is expanding. I think that that is really good. Because the college is geared more towards military students, there are not many career services on campus. But it would be nice if there would be some kind of help that i could get; being a traditional student.
