Our World

Ask almost anyone who has lived or visited Hawaiʻi — it is a special, unforgettable place. This is home to more than 1.4 million people, and is on the wish-list of visitors from around the world. It offers unique island experiences, ranging from cultural and recreational activities that span the mountains to the sea, and nature’s most diverse variations, from snow-ladened peaks to tropical rainforests.

Living in Hawaiʻi

Make college a memorable experience. Sunny skies are paired with warm tropical breezes in a unique island setting, which encourages out-of-classroom adventures spanning ocean to mountain to sky. There’s always lots to do, see and experience on Oʻahu, home to both natural beauty and manmade attractions.
