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.
This campus has become my home away from home. Which is a funny thing to say considering Leeward Community College, LCC, or “last chance college” (as nicknamed by locals) was the last place I wanted to attend school. But because of money and convenience, I did anyway. I am here 12 hours a day, 5 days a week. I eat here, I run here, I shower here, I work here, I learn here, I do everything aside from sleep here. I found my purpose. I found my voice. I became aware of my influence on political and environmental endeavors. Counselors helped me aim and move toward a major I am truly passionate about. Tutors encouraged me, everyday, to overcome the difficulties I once had with mathematics. I became a leader and organized events that helped dozens in the community through Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. I got to see the other side of the world through my first study abroad, organized by the Leeward Community College Office of International Programs. Leeward Community College is where you will find anyone, from an undecided high school graduate, to an aspiring medical scholar. And sometimes one will find themselves change into the other.
Attending Leeward Community College has saved me about $36,000 to date in tuition, I am applying for a Doctorate school in 2 months with zero student debt, and I don't need to sit in traffic for hours a day, all while I am taking the same courses that I would be taking at the 4-year university. Additionally, the class sizes are relatively small and the teachers genuinely care to ensure you get the most out of your courses.
I love my college. It is pretty small compared to most colleges, but I find the size perfect. Classrooms and offices are really easy to find, and It's impossible to get lost. Another thing I like about my college is that it is very community oriented. The students and staff are all very helpful and make you feel safe and comfortable. There are a bunch of programs that my college offers to help students. I'm in a program called G2FO. The program's main goal is to help students graduate on time. But the program also offers free textbooks, first choice enrollment, and a 500 dollars stipend per semester. My college experience so far has been great, I am within my community, close to home, and have a variety of helpful resources.
Leeward Community College is an outstanding organization that provides sufficient amount of opportunities for all social groups. Many resources are accessible within the campus and online. Family members and close friends were able to achieve their goals, regardless of their performance in high school, they received their degrees because of their magnificent pathways they offer.
Leeward Community College is a great small college. The teacher mostly care about how you are doing in the class and the students are very welcoming. The food is great and well priced and the cafe has great coffee. Overall this is a great college for saving money.
I feel that Leeward Community College is a great start for my college career. It is a small school with small class sizes. The counselors were very helpful and helped clear up any confusion that I had. The student orientation at the start of school help lessen any anxiety that I had. This school has helped with my parents obligation. We have 6 in my family and my parents work very hard having two jobs. I think it is unfair that they other that don’t work as hard get financial assistant. I wish my parents had a break.
A very good stepping stone into the world of college for almost everyone. Very affordable, with fantastic professors and students. Although it can seem dead at times, and it does lack after school activities, everyone is very friendly and willing to just talk and hang out. There are also events that happen very often. Would recommend to anyone wanting to start off their college career in Hawaii.
Leewardcommunity college is a perfect school to go when you are just getting out of high school and you’re unsure about your future and it is also a good school to go to financially and academically. The class sizes are perfect and the administrators and professors are very good at working with you .
It is a great small school to get an education for post-high learning. Also a great option to prepare for future careers. The facility may not be the greatest, but there are many programs available to help you succeed for the future. The professors are also available often for any help or questions if needed.
It's a beautiful college with a laid back atmosphere. People are there to get their education and get out. It's still under construction but it's one of the newer schools with newer facilities, which is exciting. This is only my first sem attending but I rather attend here than Kcc.
I was invited to attend a small college fair, and they did a small tour around the campus. It was interesting to hear about some of the courses that were being offered. They did a great job handling, and answering inquires. Though I didn't enroll as an on-campus student they do have online options. I believe that their online program is pretty great. I can attend school year round with a frozen tuition of $131 per credit hour. That's a lower price compared to on-campus students taking classes in the summer semester. Also the ability to take classes that are 5 weeks long is great too! Some may not like taking classes one after the other. The classes are prearranged, not many options to choose from. It depends on what courses are offered that semester. Online offers only a few majors, compared to attending as an on-campus student. I like the flexibility online, and it works for me. Overall its pretty good.
Along with Leeward, I have also attended Kapiolani Community College, and University of Hawai`i at Manoa.
I can safely say that Leeward is one of the cleanest campuses with friendly staff. The facilities are close together and class sizes are good for one-on-one discussions. On top of the lively organizations that fill the schools, the educators are top tier and willing to help students both in and out of the classes.
It is a very opening and comforting community college that bring people in from all over to get a degree and further their education with all the help they need. There are a bunch of variates of majors that students can take on. For me this college is close to home so it gives students like me and others from my community a place to further our educations that are closer to home.
