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.
