RE: transfering to hilo
Hilo is a small town. There are very few taxis, and it's uphill to the University from the town so it can be a real workout. I recommend having a car if possible. It makes getting groceries, shopping, visiting people, etc. much easier.
The town also shuts down fairly early in the evening. There are a few places to go if you want have a few drinks, dance, etc., but it can get a little rough at times.
I would visit their first before deciding to transfer or move. It's a slower pace of life that's for sure!
