Dr. Vogeler is an amazing teacher and an asset to the University! The course was tough but he walks you through it, helping you understand complex subject matter. It was a pleasure to have taken his class and I wish that he taught other courses.
Great teacher, teaches the material at a good pace with an understanding that not all students fully understand the topics in class. Most night classes are not fun, but he makes the classes interesting and when you miss a class you feel like you missed a lot.
Kumu Kuhio is a wonderful teacher! I very much enjoyed his positive energy that he brings to every lecture. He is very understanding of his students' circumstances and goes way out of his way to accommodate everyone. I am from Hawaii and I had not taken my HAP credit yet, but I am so, so glad that I chose this course to fulfill it because I learned vital information about the occupation of Hawaii. I had studied it in middle school and high school here, but never with the fine details I learned in this class, and I recommend it to anyone from our Hawaii Nei because it is important to understand the power dynamic between the federal government and local sovereignty movements, and also to realize the terrible things that went down in order for us to be a part of the U.S. Kuhio has so much enthusiasm for every class and students are constantly laughing along with him while simultaneously learning important concepts, and to be able to add humor to your teaching style without losing content is a sign of a great teacher in my opinion.
Thanks for taking such a dense subject and making it enjoyable to learn!
Mahalo, your an awesome teacher!
An outstanding professor explaining a very difficult topic in a wonderful manner.
Awesome course, Great instructor
Professor Vogeler is the best teacher I have taken in my college career, he makes the topics very easy to understand. Course work was challenging yet not enough to overwhelm you. If only other teachers taught like professor Vogeler.
This course opened my mind on topics that are rarely discussed throughout Hawaii. Even though I knew about the history with Hawaii, it was still informative to know the steps Hawaii can take to reclaim Hawaii as an independent nation
love him! great kumu and very fun!
Best Professor ever taken from UHM, very knowledgeable in his feild of study easy to approach and talk to if u have questions and concerns.
