Makaʻa Watson is a first-year student attending KCC majoring in Liberal Arts. From Honolulu, HI, the 17-year-old decided to come to KCC after struggling to get accepted to UH Mānoa over this past summer. Beyond this challenge, Watson’s decision in attending KCC was also influenced by the several great aspects that he has heard about the campus, the affordability for tuition, and how small the campus is.
Watson is taking five classes this semester and enjoys how straightforward his professors are with the learning material. Once he earns his Associate of Arts degree in Liberal Arts, Watson is hoping that it will help transition him into a Pre-Engineering major at UH Mānoa or another university.
