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.
Review Kauai Community College
It was great, easy way of starting out fresh and steady within my first year of college. I'm provided with the help I need financial and educational wise. The professors are always engaged to help their students become successful and gain their knowledge of how their careers will be like. If you are planning to study in the field of nursing, they do have an amazing program for it. I'm looking forward into earning a degree in this community college as an RN.
Overall my first month at Kauai Community College has been good. It's been an easy transition from high school to college with the smaller classrooms and direct communication with my teachers. Everyone seems to have their own lives outside of school, and the campus seems quiet away from class. Everyone is still very friendly and open, but I do t think I'll be making much friends aside from the classmates I had in high school. My classes have been fairly easy for me to understand, but I wish they'd challenge me a bit more. I'm still getting used to the college even though it has welcomed me with open arms.
