This college is amazing, I would definitely tell up and coming cousins to attend HCC to start their college experience. Everyone at the school is very helpful and mindful, the professors are somewhat great certain ones only. However I wish we had a better selection on food on the campus because in all honest it is very plain. I also think the campus could use more fun activities for every college student to participate in, not just a fundraiser event but an actual event like a mixer where other students can chat with students and so on.

I love this college! The environment is very friendly and supportive. The island life is apparent in all professors and they are always willing to lend a helping hand. The professors go beyond the classroom and do their best to help you understand the material
I just recently started going to Hawaii Community College, but it's great! The Hawaiian culture is very important to the people, and I love how they teach classes about it to help preserve the history of Hawai'i to the people. It's cool how the Hawaiian ways and values in life is incorporated to our lives.
