Located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, the beautiful islands of Hawaii offer a relaxing and safe environment to study in. The Hawaiian Islands' geography features everything from lush rainforests, active volcanoes, unspoiled beaches, cascading waterfalls, tropical gorges, and fabulous scenic vistas. The "aloha spirit" of the people and the year-round tropical climate make the islands a true tropical paradise.
Honolulu, the capital of the state of Hawaii and largest city on the island of Oahu, is a cosmopolitan business, cultural and tourism center. There are beaches, rainforests, an extinct volcano, museums, historic buildings, shopping centers and parks all within walking distance of the school. The city's entertainment and tourist district, Waikiki is just outside the school's doors.
Hawaii's tropical climate allows for year-round outdoor recreational activities. Recreational areas for swimming, scuba diving, fishing, surfing, hiking, boating, golfing, skateboarding, roller blading, jogging, cycling and tennis are all within a 10-minute drive of the school.
Honolulu also has one of the best public transportation systems in the United States and is home to over seven college-level institutions. In addition, Honolulu is the host to many cultural festivals and special events throughout the year. Honolulu is easily accessible by air from many major cities and is within a 5-hour flight to the U.S. West Coast cities of Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle.
