Hawaii community college is a well organized with great equipment and staff. Employees are always smiling when I walk past them and ask if I ever need help when I look a little lost. Counseling helps me out a lot because I'm still new to this whole college thing that Counselor's hep me understand how to work with the websites online such as trying to register or drop classes. If there were one thing I could change about this school or any college for that matter, is to make school free so more people could afford it and then maybe would there be less unsuccessful people in this world.
Hawaii Community College has been great learning experience. My confidence has grown so much by coming to a college with great teachers and staff. I look forward to being more than just a mom but an employed mom with a college degree soon. Thank you! Hawaii Community College!
I am currently in Culinary Arts Program and providing the HCC lunch everyday Monday to Friday is an honor. I worked as an internship at Four Seasons Hotel which in the future will change my life. I enjoy being in the kitchen and I can say Culinary Arts is my passion. We cook and bake Monday thru Friday the first year in the Kitchen, then the second year the first semester we work in a Cafe which teaches you to prepare for a faster pace kitchen then the cafeteria. Also memorizing all stocks and sauces. Then the second year, second semester its all about presentations and Gourmet Fine Dinning. The amount of education is amazing.
