Winter Break

As the semester comes to an end, I'd like to leave everyone with a bit of information on upcoming events and services.

Have a great break!

Student Help Desk

Did you know that students can now get free tech support?

ICS Student Help Desk at Leeward Community College is an ICS student run program
whose goal is to help repair and maintain fellow Leeward Community College student's computers and small devices.


We provide simple IT services ranging from simple hardware cleaning to virus
removal in addition to consultations on what computer to buy or what parts are compatible with a system they already have.

The schedule posted below is for the rest of Fall '15, and is subject to change in the Spring '16 semester.
