I really enjoy Leeward Community College because it's an amazing school and all the staff, such as the instructors try their best to go above and beyond for the students. I also like the fact that Leeward Community College offers an online program for students other than limiting us to only campus based learning. I also really like how the counselors try to go the extra mile for their students with trying to help with their students academic needs. Also the extra tutoring sessions they conduct in the library as needed for students that need it. Overall, I really enjoy everything about Leeward Community College

What I love about Leeward Community College is it's diversity. Practically everywhere you go, you see people of many differences, along with a common goal to learn. I've had study group partners of different intellect, made best friends of different genders, created music with friends of different cultures, and have built relationships with many of all ages. Doing this under LCC, in relation to having a common goal to learn, I am able to grasp onto what the term "life after high school" really meant, and also a glimpse on what life, in your perspective is all about. To me, it's about growing, learning, and experiencing different things; experiencing it all. I found all that at Leeward Community College.
One thing I liked about Leeward Community College and the University of Hawaii system is their relationship with Waipahu High School. Leeward Community College and UH West Oahu are the only institutions where Waipahu High School students can attend for dual-credit or running start courses. I was able to take 10 courses throughout my high school career, with 30 college credits total.
Something I would like to change about my experience at this college is having the opportunity for us to have online classes. High school students can be busy after school, but some still strive to work harder and still take early college courses. When it comes to signing up, I would have to balance time between extra-curricular activities and early college.
