The Hub Offers Tech Support for Students

ICS students staff The Hub

For students. By students. An impressive tagline for the newest service available to Leeward students.

The Hub, the student HelpDesk, provides free computer technical support to Leeward students. Coordinated by Leeward's Information and Computer Science program, The Hub is the first help desk staffed by students interns who are receiving college credits for a class.

Website Refresh

September 2016 marks the first major re-fresh of the college's website in many years. The look and feel of the site aligns with our sister campuses, Honolulu CC and Hawaii CC. If you're looking for some of the familiar links, try scrolling or "flicking" down to our footer. You'll find many links there!

Ka Mana‘o, Leeward's student-produced magazine, placed second in the School Newspaper Excellence category at the 31st annual Pa‘i Awards.

Awards were presented by the Hawai‘i Publishers Association. Judges commented Ka Manaʻo had “excellent design with a broad focus … Not afraid to take on controversial issues.” Ka Leo O Hawai‘i, the student newspaper at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, took first place.

First Place, Second Year in a Row

Congratulations to Brandon Aurelio, Typer Gadison, Raezheen Pascua, Selina Paul and Carmine Roveto!

These five students' names were randomly drawn to receive a free cap and gown for this year's Commencement Ceremony! A $40 value. All five had previously pledged for  "Agree to Degree," a campaign encouraging our students to complete their degrees.

#LeewardGrad16

#LetsDoItAgain! Last year we introduced a new element to our Commencement Ceremony--"selfie-stations" for our grads to capture a fun background for the post-ceremony photos. We kicked it up by streaming the photos and tweets on the College's home page and sending personal "congrats" to our students! The concept was so good, it won second place nationally for "Best Social Media Campaign" from the National Council of Marketing and Public Relations.

Be part of the fun! Starting Friday morning, our home page will display IG photos and Twitter posts that use #LeewardGrad16.

An Irrational Day

Pi Day 2016

On Monday, March 14th 2016, Leeward's Math Department hosted a day of fun and numbers--LOTS of numbers! March 14th is the 3rd month of the year, hence the date 3.14 is celebrated as "Pi Day." Leeward students were invited to participate in various games and activities to earn tickets for a drawing.  Students also wrote "pi-kus" -- a haiku about the amazing number pi. Of course, Pi Day would be incomplete without some free pie for participating! Look forward to Pi Day next year!
