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.
It's a rather small campus but that can be a great advantage. The small class sizes allow you to really bond with other students, creating friendships and forming study groups. The teachers are almost always available and ready to help you because over the course of the semester they have gotten to know you. In my experience, every single professor I have had has been rooting for me, and hoping I succeed in every class. They are kind, assertive, and really fantastic at what they do.
It's really great! Teachers are willing to help their students. I can communicate with them by electronic and they will respond to me as soon as possible regardless on their availability. Also, they really make time to know their students weaknesses and strengths.
