As a residential campus featuring a liberal arts focus, UH Hilo attracts students from across the state and abroad. The campus is located approximately three miles from the Hilo Airport and is within close proximity to movie theaters, shopping malls, and convenience stores. The University of Hawaii at Hilo is situated on the island of Hawaii, the largest in the Hawaiian Archipelago. With an area of 4,060 square miles, it has more land than all the other Hawaiian islands combined. With its great variety of physical features, including peaks that are snowcapped in winter, pasture lands, sugarcane fields, active volcanoes, and rain-swept valleys, the Big Island of Hawaii has been described as a tropical mini-continent. Located in the Pacific Ocean, Hawaii Island is almost 2,500 miles from the mainland U.S.A.

The University of Nevada is one of the best kept secrets in the American higher education system. Ranked as a “Class 1” research institution by the American Association of University Professors, Nevada is in distinguished company with the University of California, the California Technological Institute, the University of Michigan, the University of Washington and many other fine schools. A land grant institution established in 1874, the University of Nevada was housed entirely in one building and had an inaugural graduating class of three. Today the Nevada campus spans over 200 acres in beautiful, northwest Reno and has expanded abroad with a satellite campus in Tokyo. Modern brick buildings blend harmoniously with the ivy-covered halls of the past to give Nevada the traditional, academic atmosphere that its designers intended when they modeled it after Thomas Jefferson’s plan for the University of Virginia. The 13,200 students presently enrolled at Nevada, including scholars from each of the 50 states and 700 foreign exchange students from 47 countries, have a wide range of educational choices among the university’s 11 colleges which offer 169 various programs of study. Degrees in agriculture, business, nursing, communications, engineering, journalism, medicine and health and community sciences are offered along with liberal arts and sciences. image
The University of Hawai‘i at Manoa is a research university of international standing. It creates, refines, disseminates, and perpetuates human knowledge; it offers a comprehensive array of undergraduate, graduate, and professional degrees through the doctoral level, including law and medicine; it carries out advanced research; and it extends services to the community. Students have special opportunities for Asian, Pacific, and Hawaiian educational experiences and involvement in research activities, service learning, and co-curricular activities. The main UH campus, located in Manoa Valley on the island of O‘ahu, began in 1907 as a land-grant college of agriculture and mechanic arts. With the addition of a College of Arts and Sciences in 1920, the college became the University of Hawai‘i. In 1972, it became the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa to distinguish it from the other units in the growing UH system. Today 18,700-plus people are enrolled in Manoa courses, on campus or via distance delivery, studying toward bachelor’s degrees in 90 fields of study, master’s degrees in 89, doctorates in 57, first professional degrees in architecture, law, and medicine, and a number of certificates. In addition, 69 percent of Manoa students are undergraduates, 57 percent are women, and 72 percent attend school full-time. The mean age of students is 26. image
