Leeward Community College
Leeward Community College is a public, co-educational commuter community college in Pearl City, Hawai'i on the island of O'ahu. Its main campus is adjacent to the campus of University of Hawaii-West Oahu. It is one of ten branches of the University of Hawai'i System anchored by the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa in Honolulu and is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
In addition to its main campus in Pearl City, Leeward Community College also runs the Waianae Education Center in the nearby town of Waianae.
Many students joke that "LCC" stands for "Last Chance College," a backronym describing Leeward Community College's open admissions policy: students who can't meet the stricter stricter admissions policies of other colleges often start their college education at Leeward Community College.
Despite jokes of that nature, Leeward is recognized for its digital media and television production programs, considered by some to be the best in the state.
