This community college is great, compared to a mainland community college I went to. The educational environment and the dedication of the staff far surpassed my expectations. There is a sense of "ohana" (family) here and its wonderful. There is campus events that encourages all students to attend no matter there field of study.

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.
