University of Hawaii at Hilo Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (5)
University of Hawaii at Hilo is an awesome college. It's mainly a commuter school but we have good mix of in-state and out-of-state students. They have an excellent Environmental Science/Geography program. The degree specific classes are generally pretty small and you nice student to professor ratio. Many opportunities to get real-work experience through internships, clubs, volunteer work in Hawaii's Conservation area. It is unfortunately competitive, but if you get get the experience is priceless.
It was difficult but completely worth it at the end. Being a college graduate is huge these days for the average person
UH Hilo is a wonderful for a variety of reasons; small classes, devoted professors and a very ethnically diverse group of students. However, this school is geared most towards the sciences (particularly Geology, Astronomy and Marine science) so if your interest is in the arts, it may be safer to look elsewhere.
It is a great experience - diverse curriculum and student body. Warm friendly professors who really care about the topics.
The University of Hawaii at Hilo is a small campus, that gives it the ability to be very hands on with a small student to teacher radio. The Big Island of Hawaii is a wonderful natural laboratory, and classes are very hands on especially for marine science, biology, geology (volcanology), and astronomy. The University is also a hub for Hawaiian Language and Studies, unlike any other university in the system.
