This school is great-the staff, the students, and the activities! You have a huge opportunity to meet new people, and the teachers are really approachable. It's a very comfortable environment. I'm glad i made the decision to start my college career at a Community campus.

The instructors at Leeward Community College have terrific skills in teaching. They will spend extra time with their students and share some of their strategies to succeed. Also, the tutors help are a blessing to have.
Tips for prospective students
Don't procrastinate because it can be over whelming and stressful. Do your homework right away and review daily is always a good tip. In this way, you'll be prepared and ready.
Academic Rigor
Try to over exceed yourself in learning. As we increase our knowledge, good habits will reflect our learning experiences. Ant the able to see the connections, identify patterns, evaluate outcomes, speculate on possibilities and assess value.
Dorm Life
I've never had a dorm life, but I think its a great opportunity to experience it.
Food and Dining
This could be a great challenge because dining out can be very expensive.
What to do for fun
Living in Hawaii, the beach is the best way to have fun with spending a bundle.
Bang for the buck
Make friends with the local people because they know where to go to get some cheap eats.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Go to the halau (a place for Hawaiian native or any students). There you'll find a place just like home. Much love and aloha for everyone on campus.

This campus is like home! The security guards are always on the lookout and the maintenance workers are all over the campus so its a safe place to be.

The instructors are there to help you learn the material and help you pass your course. The classes are structured well.
Am enjoying being here
The campus is nice. There are a lot of student activities and events that are fun.
Bang for the buck
Credits are inexpensive. Also, there are a lot of resources available for students which help you pass your course and learn the material. Academic help is provided through free tutoring, a learning resource center, the library, a math lab and a writing center. There are also computer labs and a laptop loan program. The staff is very helpful.
Tips for prospective students
Schedule an appointment with a counselor for academic advising; they will help you choose the courses you need and help you schedule them. Check out ratemyprofessor.com before making your final choices. Ask studnets for advice who took the courses before.
Great for these types of students
There are a lot of classes at different times and days and there are also online courses so it's great for any student.

Due to small-sized classes, there is more interaction with the teachers and the rest of the students in the class as compared to a large-sized class. Being taught in such an environment allows you to really get the material down. Furthermore, most teachers are nice and open, and are readily available to help in any way they can.
Am enjoying being here
The laid-back atmosphere on campus provides a comfortable feeling of relaxation while studying. You don't get a sense of being extremely stressed, even when it is exam week(s). In addition to this, talking to other students and teachers is very easy.
Bang for the buck
The prices are reasonable for what everything is worth. You often get what you paid for.
Tips for prospective students
Be sure to attend classes regularly or else you may fall behind in your work, even if you are ahead. If you don't attend classes regularly, you may fall into the habit of almost always skipping, which would result in–eventually–neglecting to do the work. Also, take advantage of the activities and such the school offers, it'll make the college experience all the more fun.
Great for these types of students
This college is great for any student who has at least one goal that sets them off in a direction.

The classes are very detailed and interesting to follow. The work may be tough, but the endurance and effort they require are sure to give you an understanding of what you're learning!
Am enjoying being here
This school is a wonderful place to start your college studies. Everyone in the faculty is kind, caring, and will help you with whatever your needs are. The students are just as friendly, and most of them become your friends in the future!
Bang for the buck
Not ready to go for the big universities? Don't worry! What you pay for one class at a university may be able to pay for a full-time status at Leeward!
Tips for prospective students
Always keep an eye out for special events!
Great for these types of students
Hard-working, yet social students are welcome!
