If you are a person who likes to be surrounded by nature, Kapiolani Community College is the way to go. The atmosphere in the campus is peaceful and relaxing because the location is near by the mountain we call "Diamond Head." It is one of the most recognized Hawaii landmark due to its cultural significance. If you try to go for a walk outside, you can also see the spectacular view of Waikiki and the beach. The view is breathtaking, especially during sunrise/sunset. Personally, I prefer studying outside their library because you can hear the ocean waves and it helps me to focus on my studies even more. Additionally, they offer a lot of opportunities not only to Hawaii residents, but also to foreign students. The faculty members as well as the professors are very welcoming towards to students and they will be happy to help if you're struggling in school, or life in general. They can help you financially or even mentally. Lastly, there's Starbucks inside the campus as well as bookstore where students can buy their books, school supplies, and uniforms at a very friendly price. The culinary students also serve appetizing meals during lunch and there's a food truck near campus if you prefer bentos or packed lunch.
Overall, I will highly recommend going to Kapiolani Community College as it is ranked as #1 for online associates & community college education in Hawai'i and #4 best online community college in the nation. Even if it's only a community college, I believe that I get the same education as the students who attend a university. PLUS, the tuition and fees is way cheaper so you can save a lot of money while assuring that you are receiving a high quality education.
This campus is a beautiful, and has a lot of things to do that is near by. Academics is well educated by intelligent professors. There is always help and tutoring for those in need. The food is excellent however, the pricing can be a bit high. The people there are very diverse and we also have great help classes, like for registration and fasfa.
My teachers were passionate for their subjects, gave each student equal treatment and made the homework understandable. It's superior campus and academic availability for different classes and majors made it more attractive to continue my education at than Hawaii Community College.
It’s a good school. I would recommend it for younger students (18 years or older) and for older students or students who are also in the workforce. I also believe that this college has a good Hawaiian studies department. I would go here again to complete an associates of arts degree.

I find this essay question rather hysterical because in my little spare time I often think about this. There is a long list of things I advice I would give myself as a high school senior on what to expect and prepare for in college life. The main piece of advice that always comes to mind is to learn how to take thorough notes during lectures. It is impossible to take notes word for word as the professor is speaking. When I try writing the notes in a shorter form, I often find the notes to be unclear and confusing. I have confidence that I will become much better at this as time goes on. However if I would have been better at this a high school senior, I would have a head start in my college career.
The best thing about my school is the teachers and students. The teachers beacause they are so understanding and mdthods of teaching are great. They work really hard and should be recognized for it. The students because there is such a huge diversity of students, and so many new friends I can make. And everyone is so nice, it's great.
Anyone is able to attend this college. It does not matter if a person is bad in school because the professors and counslers are there to help them reach their goals. Also, there are many tutors on campus that are glad to help.
I moved from to minnesota to go to college here in Hawaii. I am sure that you know the weather in minnesota is currently undesirable at best. This being the case, I try my very best not to "brag" about my college experience in hawaii. I do inform them how great all of my professors are, and how my awesome professors do a great job of teaching me subjects of studies I once struggled with. I also tell them that my college has a beautiful campus that is a peaceful enviroment that is great to learn in.
Kapiolani Community College is a diverse campus with many resources available for students to use such as computers, tutors, labs, peer mentors, on campus jobs, etc.
Kapiolani Community College is a beautiful campus. The breath-taking views make walking between class a calming experience (especially before a big exam!). The instructors at this school are from their actual field of study, and are incredibly knowledgeable. They have been on the routes before, therefore they know what is important and relevant.
The most frustrating thing about my school is the distance I have to travel. It's far away from where I live and it takes me about an hour and a half to get there. I have to catch the bus everyday because if I was to drive it would be a waste on gas. I don't have money to pay for gas so the bus is my only alternative.
They are from all over the world.
KCC is best known for its culinary and nursing field. It is the home for Culinary Institute of the Pacific, where they have their own resturant on campus and residence & students are able to go there. Even though it is a 2 year college, they offer an ADN (Associate Degree in Nursing). This is very good because after we recieve that certificate we are able to go to a 4 year university and work at the same time.
My favorite class right now would be my speech class because that is the first class that i actually got to meet new people and be more social. My least favorite class would be my History 151 class because i don't really like just sitting and listening to lectures. I am more a hands on person. Class participation is always required in all classes that i have been in. Yes, all the students that our in my major are very competitive. My major is culinary and i really enjoy being in this field because the instructors are very well known and helpfully. outside of class i try to help out at events with the instructors to advance in my skills.
To be honest i don't really know of any clubs on campus. I don't think we have any clubs on our campus. i don't see a lot of couples on campus. I meet my closest friends through some of the classes i took last semester. i don't think people part at my school because we are a community college. The things i do off campus is work and go shopping.
After thinking about all the schools that i would want to go to i kept going back to KCC because they have a great culinary program. I think our school is kind of too small for my taste because its a college and when i think of college i think of a big campus. When i tell people about the school i go to they always wonder why i choose this school and i would tell them that i am there because i am a culinary major. The most frequent student complaint that i have heard was that we don't hold that much activities, like all we do is go to school and go home or work. They talk about bonding and being more social.
Most of the kids my age are FOB's (fresh off the boat) like Asians. So i guess you can say the stereotypes is Geeks.
Before I came to college, I wish that I had known how difficult it could be. I wish that I had more guidance in figuring out what I wanted to do before I just started taking random classes. I felt like that really set me back, because I was taking classes that I thought were helpful, but in actually are not for my intended major.
For myself the worst thing about school is the distance. I reside in Waipahu, so KCC is a long journey. So getting to school is quite an adventure for me, because I choose to take the city bus. It takes almost 2 hrs to get to school and 2 busses to get to KCC.
