    If you are from the mainland, make sure this is where you really want to go. I have seen students get what I call isolation fever. This campus is located on the Big Island and it is very big, but you have to forget you are on an island. Housing off campus is affordable, but staple food is not. Yes, milk and bread are very expensive, so you have to shop around. Be careful buying local produce that is not thoroughly washed. If in doubt, stick to the national chains (Target, Walmart, and Safeway). Tuition is affordable and the most of the 99% of the professors are pro student success.

    If you're an incoming Marine Science major (because I am), this is definitely the school to come to. I learn more when the class is hands on and a lot of the marine science course labs are hands on. You go out into the water and apply what you're learning in lab to real life. It's really cool! There's so many different clubs and organizations to get into as well. It's a great way to meet people from all over the world. There are many transfers as well. I've met people from Norway, Germany, Morocco, etc. It's really cool to be exposed to different cultures. There's a lot of outdoor activities to do (if you're into that). If you're doing off-campus housing, I would suggest Tohbi Hale or Hale Haumana. It's within walking distance of the school. I have my own room, living room, kitchen and one roommate. There's on site washer/dryer and your neighbors are all students at the University. Parking is available (if you bought or shipped your car) but I have a bike which is fine. The school offers a bike-share program if you don't want to buy a bike. At orientation, the student ambassadors are so friendly. They automatically make you feel as if you have been attending for a few semesters. I came to the Big Island because I heard there is a Manta Ray Night Scuba/Snorkel over on Kona side. I haven't done it yet, but I'm excited to do it!

    Get used to relaxed mannerisms of professors. However, relaxed professors doesn't mean they don't give a lot of homework, watch the deadlines! Expect a lot of class discussions between students in small to large groups. Participation is pretty big in UHH so attendance is more often than not a part of your grade.

    This school is great for business and marine students. If your preferred major isn't specialized at this school then come just for to get your generals done, because it's a lot of fun here.
