Kehani Tejada - 9/27/2018
Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2016
"The University of Hawaii at Hilo was a great place where I was able to find my passion as a historian. The faculty is amazing. They were all very helpful while I tried different avenues of educational fields and were supportive. The history department surpassed my expectations. They all have their own special fields and are able to entice students in a way that makes history fun and exciting. I truly believe that the History department prepared me for my Masters program!"

"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."

"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."

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2014
"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."
