My experience at Leeward community college is great, when i have a question don't hesitate to ask or feel embarrassed either because i know other students have the same question as me. Not only that but most professors are understanding and will break down the lesson for me which is wonderful. The campus is huge and the different spots for lunch are good with various options, along with having vending and soda machines at every possible location around the campus! I am just a freshman attending Leeward and i am already enjoying myself and you will too!

Having been to three community colleges before continuing at Leeward, I can say with certainty that Leeward is my best academic experience yet. The selection of classes is pretty diverse, and you will find professors that actually challenge you, which is something that tends to lack at community colleges. I really felt like I took something from each class I enrolled in. I only give LCC three stars, however, because everything outside of the academics is a bit lacking. There is little opportunity for campus involvement in terms of clubs and athletics, and there isn't a good selection for dining. Also, the traffic getting in and out during the day isn't great.
Leeward Community College is a great place to achieve higher education. The professors are great, and make learning fun. The only issue I've had with the school is the process of enrolling was both difficult, and complicated. At the time of my enrollment, they were updating their online system. Which really made the process way more difficult than it needed to be. Their system when signing up for classes also glitches out too. Though calling the school's main office, and explaining your issue to them fixes the issue right away.
