As I just transferred from another school, I find Lackawanna very open and welcoming. I find the environment and classrooms more comfortable for me. I think the professors are more hands on and involved with each student.
First year is almost in the books and I have loved every minute of it. The professors go at an easy pace and all other students are very kind and courteous. Very polite. I can’t wait until I come back in the fall!
