Leeward Community College
is a public, co-educational commuter community college in Pearl City,
Hawai'i on the island of O'ahu. 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 an 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 addmissions 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.
