Small campus, easy to find your way around! Beautiful view of the mountain range! Students are able to participate in clubs and government. If you are interested in Nursing, Kauai CC was ranked top for nursing programs in the state of Hawaii.

Kaua'i Community College gave me the opportunity to explore degrees. My time at KCC was the push to a bigger and brighter future. It was there that I found my passion in the sciences. It took the harsh lectures and endless labs to show me but the excitement of science being unpredictable is what pulled me in more and the instructors who taught these courses inspired me in many ways. Of all my courses and instructors I have come across at Kaua'i CC, I never once felt like I was anything below ordinary. I was well-educated and felt like even the impossible IS possible. I loved my time there, I'd do it again.
Really enjoyed my two years here. Kind faculty, students, and even cafeteria workers. There was always sufficient time given to myself as well as other students to study and succeed in and outside of our classes. Also a centered campus. Good for commuting from most areas on the island.
