Overall, Kapiolani Community College welcomed me with wide open arms. This was my first semester and I was pleasantly surprised by how many opportunities there are to get help, how friendly the staff and professors were, how kind and helpful the students were and how beautiful the campus was. I'm enrolled for the Spring 2017 semester and I honestly couldn't be more excited than I am now!
Review Your College
I believe that Kapiolani Community College is a great school for people who live near, from other countries who are working and living to get a great education. The Campus is compact which beats scrambling and running all over the place for your classes. There are plants all over and the campus is constantly getting beautified by faculty and students who partake in campus beautification and in the greenhouse. The Library has two sections, downstairs for printing, computers, and group collaboration, while upstairs is for more quite work. The Cafeteria food has some variety and daily dishes being made, with tasty baked goods for anyone looking for a homemade snack between classes. Rooms are all-majority AC which is really nice. You get a more intimate relationship with peers and professors in more compact classes than in huge lectures. This campus offers a lot to students through their staff, faculty, facilities, programs, events, and charming atmosphere.
They offer great study options, especially within the library. On a good day there is almost always a computer available for my use. Never too crowded, and if it is, there is always a second floor where it is absolutely quiet, perfect for studying and catching up on work.

Class registration was only confusing because it is my first time attending this particular campus, of course it's not going to flow as smoothly as you would hope it be. They also offer great activities that could help further your knowledge in the specific field you're interested in. There's a club called SHIMA, that explores the hospitality industry with "field trips" and other activities, truly a good time all the while learning and gaining that insight.

Nothing in life comes easy, if it does, be ready for that move that comes out of left field that will knock you on your butt. You'll get knocked down seven times but you stand up eight, keep striving!
