Hawaii advantage: multicultural atmosphere, wide range of learning opportunities, health, safe and friendly environment, ranked program, concentration of international students in a small place (Oahu) and the need for hosting houses, once the biggest Private University (HPU) has only a few accommodations to their students.
In 2011, 4,768 international students contributed more than $115 million to the Hawaii economy — a figure that includes only college level students according to the Institute of International Education. (Short term training, specialized educational programs for limited periods, non-accredited classes, etc. are not included in this calculation, so the economic impact from international students studying in Hawaii is much greater that the $115 million calculated. However, this serves as a base to gauge the economic impact of international students.) In turn, the $115 million direct impact generated 2,185 jobs and $16.8 million in state government tax revenues according to DBEDT calculation.

The cultural diverse is so evident that the university highlights it in all of their promotional materials.
