4.0

WHAT I LIKED

I liked that most of the professors are willing to help students in their classes and most are lenient and understanding. I also liked that the school tries to engage with the students by providing activities to do every week.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The campus is mostly in downtown Honolulu, so if you are looking to move off-campus, it's going to be more expensive-looking for places around/near campus.

Cheerleading

WHAT I LIKED

Because you are on an island and I live on the mainland, it is a little adjustment. The teachers are very supportive and even the rest of the faculty here at HPU. Everything is within walking distance.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I haven't really come across anything that I dislike.
