Students enjoy personalized attention from Geology professors.

One of the best things about the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo is the ratio of students to instructors. "The small class sizes in the UH Hilo geology department offer opportunities that larger universities with graduate programs can't provide. The professors are more like mentors than large classroom lecturers." —Gail Ostrander, Staff Geologist, Padre Associates, Inc., Southern California
