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.
It's a small campus but the people there are so helpful. All the staff there are more than happy to help you find classes, financial services, job opportunities, anything you need to help you succeed. The professors are patient and encouraging. Tuition costed the same as my laptop. Overall, it's a great school!
