regarding honolulu, every day on the news it seems: something burns down and/or someone gets killed by hit and run. Depending on what your major is you could look into one of the UH satellite campuses like UH Hilo...
Personally, I don't know that I'd necessarily base my academic and professional future on going to school where the best waves are.

On the other hand if you complete an associates degree at mesa CC (1.5 - 2 years depending on course load), most state schools will honor that degree and you can pick up right where you left off.
Find out where you want to eventually go, tell an advisor your plan and see what they say.

I visited a few schools when I was up there and UAA seemed to be pretty legit. I didn't look into the school's curriculum and history, but I would much rather be in Anchorage than Fairbanks. Schooling aside, Ketchikan is my favorite city. I spotted a massive shark tooth - megalodon? - from a footbridge, but I couldn't find a way to climb down. I still think about that tooth....
You've got some beautiful country up there, cresto. Next time you're in Juneau, grab a Freeride for me at Red Dog Saloon.

I would go to California. I had a great time at UNCW but outside of surfers and nc, people will look at your resume with a confused look on their face. Sure it's gotten harder to get into but it's still school at the beach, which doesn't create a great academic environment. Good waves are maybe twice a month and it gets crowded. I live in NYC now and although it gets good occasionally, it still has the typical east coast problems. Knee high short period wind swell is the norm unless you've got a hurricane or nor'easter. Lot of guys get off surfing in 35 water with snow on the beach and 30 mph offshore winds. That's cool but California on an average day is as good and you won't be in a survival situation.
1. Brown University
2. University of Rhode Island(tell 'em you're from Jersey)
3. Pepperdine University - if you like summer courses and crowds
4. The Richard J Stockton College of NJ(Get and education and become a gambling addict)
5. University of NC-Wilmington(maybe Erock will rent you a room. He likes UNCW students and you may run into Jennelle Evans from Teen Mom 2)
6. University of Maryland - Salisbury
7. Harvard University
8. Fresno State
9. Any school north of the Golden Gate Bridge(wear Nikes, smoke weed, and complain aboot corporate America)
10. Rutgers University - Camden(This one's for you, WalkingonH20)

Try northern mich univ. in Marquette. Da U P eh. Storm surfing in the bay is awesome. Ya think jersey is cold not even close. Bring a 5mm suit. There is no line ups to wait in and no sharks, just sea cows.
