The Hawaii Community College and University of Hawaii West Hawaii Center
is a community college that also hosts some satellite classes for the University of Hawaii. The campus is currently located in the heart of Kealakekua, however a new campus across from the Kona airport is scheduled to open in early 2013.
The College is known for its great nursing and culinary programs. Visit the Keauhou Farmer's Market - or many fine restaurants in the area - to get a taste of what the culinary students can do.
