UH Manoa

This is Hawaii's main university. And it just keeps growing, serving more and more students every year.

My husband and I went on an architectural walking tour of the campus as part of AIA Honolulu's celebration of architecture month. The building highlights for me were the Andrews Outdoor theater and the art building. But meeting Frank Haines who still guides Saturday AIA walking tours at the age of 96 was serendipity as I read about him last... More

I presume the quality of education at UH is excellent, but, speaking solely as a tourist driving through the campus, it lacked the beauty a` la UCLA that i expected. One would think that the main campus of the University of Hawaii could be a model of beauty and serenity. Not so. There is very little to separate this campus... More

Jazz in a small, friendly club with a good salad bar. The jazz offerings are a combination of local as well as guest artists. We saw the Rob Scheps Quartet including a surprise drop in visit from a jazz bassoonist.

We traveled by bus from Waikiki to the University to watch the volleyball tournament that was going on this weekend, and to view the cityscape outside of the beach area. This was a lovely campus, the Stan Sheriff Event Center was huge, and I had never seen so many concessions in a stadium except at professional teams stadiums. The campus... More

If I could choose a college again, I think I'd go here! Tasteful campus set in a Honolulu neighborhood. We took the college tour--they have a lot to offer in a wonderful setting.

We visited the University as my father had studied there and graduated in 1935. The University was then new and very much smaller than now. The Chancellor was very gracious and showed us around personally. Cant thank him enough. Will remember this visit

UH Manoa is a multi-cultural amazing outdoor campus that sits above Honolulu in the valley below the Koolau Mtns. Fabulous place if you are lucky to call it "my school!"

Two buses, one being the 13 and the 6 I believe is the other get to Manoa. Such a beautiful campus with beautiful greenery right throughout and the Manoa shopping center a 10minute walkway and great facilities of the libraries and gym! Great lunch center and cafeteria too!lovely to walk about and explore if just visiting

My favorite thing about this campus were the strange trees I haven't seen elsewhere in the world! I spent a few weeks here in one of the dorms, attending a seminar at the East-West center. I liked finding some of the on-campus food carts and small places to eat. (There's a dearth of nearby good restaurants that I could find.)... More
