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!
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.
