WHAT I LIKED

I have liked that we are so close to the ocean and the marine sciences are hands-on. The professors here are well educated. Plus every day you wake up in paradise.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I would like the price of things to be less expensive.

Aloha future Seasiders! BYU-Hawaii is a culturally diverse, immersive learning experience. With students from over 70 countries around the world, it is common to walk around campus and hear friends chatting in all different languages! Class sizes are small, which helps us create a University Ohana that knows and cares for each other. There are opportunities nearly every Saturday to help Malama the Haina on this beautiful island. If you are willing to get curious and ask questions about the people around you, you have one of the rarest opportunities to make life-long friends in every corner of the globe. We can't wait for you to come to join us!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Aloha future Seasiders! BYU-Hawaii is an incredibly culturally diverse university, set on the beautiful island of Oahu, immersed in the native Hawaiian culture. It has been an incredible learning experience so far, but there are things to be aware of. With so many cultures on campus, we learn quickly and often that what is acceptable to one group of people can be offensive to another. Humility and empathy are a must if you are interested in applying. Students that cannot humble themselves to apologize or change and that do not accept the apologies of others can create conflict on campus. Come with a curious mind and a forgiving heart and you will fit in just fine. Another warning, drama is a no-go. Everyone is ohana here and that means sometimes we step on each other's toes. Students who become riled up about school policy or attempt to start drama among students, departments, etc. are not welcome. Come feel the spirit of Aloha with us, we don't need none of that negative energy here! We look forward to seeing you here!

WHAT I LIKED

I love my teachers and friends. They are all so understanding, fun (like, really fun), and accommodating towards my mental illness and disabilities. There are good people here, especially if you're looking for them. Their entrepreneurship program is amazing, too. I have had so many opportunities and have been able to begin my career and find things I am passionate about before even graduating. They facilitate success. Also, the beach is practically 7 minutes away, walking time. I love learning, and I love it here.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The dating scene isn't much of a scene, the honor code is important to follow, some people don't keep the standards they teach, there is not very good health care here, and really bad accessibility to counseling services. It is easy to get island fever and go a little stir-crazy; especially if you don't have a car. This isn't a negative thing, but you should know that if you are in Hawaii, you are a guest. The land is sacred and the people are deserving of respect. I love it here and try hard to show that by how I interact with my surroundings.

WHAT I LIKED

I like how easy to access everything from campus. I live off-campus and have a bike, so I can literally go to BYUH in 5 mins, to Foodland in 5 mins, and to the beach in 3 mins. I love where I live!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Well… I don’t like the administration. It’s horrible. And some professors have a poor performance like every other college.
