Leeward Community College Reviews

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.

I have had a very great experience at Leeward Community College this 2017 Spring semester. I had taken courses in the past from Leeward and was excited and nervous at the same time to go back.
I am glad that I went back to Leeward Community College instead of another community college. I felt that I, as a person was important to the education staff and even the other staff members and other students that I had encountered while doing business on campus were very personable.
My overall experience at Leeward Community College was tremendous! I am excited to continue my education in the Fall Semester.
My experience at Leeward Community College has been great. Although, everyone is really distant from each other or doing their own thing, I get to focus on myself without any distraction. I am able to talk to my professor in times of need such as explaining the assignments clearly to me so that I can have a clearer overview of it. They have great resources there that can also help the students to achieve greater things when it comes to their education. One thing that I would want to point out about Leeward is that some professors are very bias and tend to favor students that they like. Some of them can also have very strict grading policies which makes students want to withdrawal or drop out of that class or even hate learning about that subject that they have a passion for.
