3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: In my English class, my teacher gave out too much work, especially between Monday and Wednesday. It was frustrating that most of my credits did not transfer, but I was okay with it.

3 College Freshman

Online Courses: My online course was okay, but I wish I had learned more from it.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: I like how there are many people on campus that are positive and share aloha. There are many people and the campus is very diverse.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Most people were in the liberal arts program, so it was pretty easy to go to others for help, and the work was just enough.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The professors were very helpful, except my English was a alot of work. All in all, it was pretty good.

Career Services: The career center was very helpful!

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Resources are available, but not always reliable or worth the time used.

2 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The computer network is often down or not working when, personally, I need them to work most. Speed can be slow, frequently.

Academic Experience: I haven't had any experiences to do more in my specific major at school. For the Human Services 110 course, I got to do an internship at a local elderly facility and learned a lot.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The class registration process is very simple and easy. You have to look at the online catalog and enter the CRN and institution on the website. The professors are laid back and understanding. Most of them try to help you complete the course with a passing grade and offer heartfelt advice.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I am only able to take three classes due to my busy schedule of personal affairs and working. In the Spring 2014 semester, I was hoping that I would land a spot on an online class and take four classes. It is extremely difficult to get into an online class and by the time that everyone has a chance to look at their classes, class availability is slim. It is frustrating when you cannot get into the classes that you want and challenge yourself to reach your full potential.

Career Services: I am not familiar with this section of the survey but I do know that there is career and internship fairs that are held regularly; as well as resume and writing workshops.

Campus Resources: We share resources with the public university. With that being said, we have a brand new gym that offers athletic classes, a pool and an amazing gym. We also have a great library/computer lab and a learning center. It was a great provision that we have the opportunity to share the same resources as the university and gain the full experience.

Campus Resources: The computer network at my school is great. Although we do not have enough computer labs to accommodate everyone on campus, our computers are efficient and reliable. We do not have enough funds to supply paper to the students but we can bring our own and use the printers available. There is a really fast internet speed and WiFi is available in most areas of campus.

Overall Experience: I would come back to Hawaii Community College again. There is reasonable tuition and a wide selection of courses to take for a community college. They hold career fairs and public events. Although the staff and students aren't welcoming and helpful, it is a great college for an independent learner- such as myself.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Some classes are not worth what I am paying for. I have sat in two classes who ended class at least one hour early and not completed the agenda as planned. When I pay for a course, I want to sit through the whole class and learn what was supposed to be taught for the day. Regarding financial aid, I received no assistance in our financial aid office. As an incoming freshman, I turned in all my financial aid paperwork a few months early. It took about four to six months to receive any response; despite calling during that time. If you are going to get financial aid at any institution, you need to be serious and firm to these people to get the job done.
