I believe that Leeward Community College is a great lace to start especially for anyone that is just starting, especially for People that are just getting their liberals. We have great support groups from Access to Education and Going to Finish on time program that helps students in any way possible.


As a first semester student, I have come to know that many teachers are open and willing to help you succeed. They put time and effort in knowing their students and how they can personally better your academic success. The students, since it is such a small island, are like family (don't be surprised if you actually are though). It is a great school to start off at and is pretty affordable.


For a community college Leeward has amazing teachers, especially for the Agriculture degree. The teachers on campus are approachable, caring, and helpful. Parking is free, and there are new facilities being built. Clean bathrooms, and facilities, great gardens and Hawaiian culture. The tuition is very reasonable and there are always new events the school promotes. The education is great you will learn more than you expect, its a safe environment, there are many areas to study or hang out. The parking is not too crazy and it is close to home and many stores. I have taken all of the general classes for my agriculture degree, and of all of them the in person teachers are the most passionate and caring about their teaching, and that includes if they teach an online course. The school is always sending out emails, postings, and speakers to the classes for anything school or work related. The school is dedicated to helping students succeed. There are many computer areas to use, snacks, food court, and workshops. I'm happy to graduate from Leeward!


Leeward Community College offers a wide variety of career pathways that may be of interest. The teachers and staff are all well experienced and friendly, they'll definitely guide students in the direction they're headed towards. As well as the friendly faces you'll see around campus. The student lounge always has a competitive gaming scene going on in there. Ka Mana'o the publication of Leeward covering important current issues and events that matter. From all the drama left in the large drama hall on campus, over to the Education building educating future educators, mind I repeat, Educators... I haven't even scratched the surface of what Leeward Community College has to offer. As it is the most laid back, cool, chill CC campus on Hawaii.. and it doesn't even have to try to be.

  9. Describe the students at your school.

    The classmates in my course class are different from the classmates in High school. The classmates would actually be team players and are responsible people that I can work with. In High school, people would usually take advantage of who they think is the smartest person and work with him/her in order to get a good grade. What was worse was that the students wouldn't do the work and they instead let the 'smart' one do all of the work which was upsetting. Anyway, the students in LCC gives me a good experience that I won't forget.
