Kapiolani Community College in my opinion is one of the best CC's on this island. The vibe to the college isn't like most colleges, it's not the stressful student kind of vibe, to describe it is say it has the island vibe to it very laid back stress free! The campus grounds have gone through renovations over the years but still hasn't lost its island touch. The builds are clean, the professors are very kind and welcoming. Just an amazing place to call school!

What I like about Kapiolani Community College is that it's very affordable to attend, which makes it a school that is highly accessible to people of all income brackets. Also, the on-campus staff are great on the whole: most of the professors seem to genuinely want their students to learn, and most will make time outside of class to help you out if needs be. Furthermore, the counselors at KCC are great! They are willing to sit down with you and help you map out your academic pathway.
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!
