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!
The faculty and staff at Hawaii Community College are very helpful and kind. They offer detailed counseling for both incoming and current students who are unsure of what career path to pursue. There are multiple free services located on campus to accommodate students who are struggling or would like to practice their skills in specific campus courses. Professors are often very willing to meet with their students outside of classroom hours in order to assist them with course content. Hawaiian culture has a prominent influence on this college. The atmosphere is flourishing with Aloha.
