Lackawanna College Reviews
I have attended this school for on-campus classes and it was a great experience. The teachers are very helpful and provide a lot of information. There are many activities for the students. Additionally, there are different free services that the school provides to help students with their career. The school is very clean and well maintained. There are different degrees offered and they are diverse, which is great for undeclared students. Overall, it is a great college!
From the moment I enrolled, all the people that I have connections with through the college and that I talked to from the time I first applied to now, a week after the end of my 2nd semester at school have kept in touch me with me and have been very supportive and helpful with making sure I am okay on both a personal and educational level. The classes have been easy up to this point and although I was lost at first, I now know my way around the buildings at the Scranton campus and I've even helped several people find their way. I have made several friends of different majors, ethnicities, religions, etc. and have even become great friends with several of my instructors or advisors. Overall, my experience at Lackawanna College has been the best experience of my life and I have made several connections and friendships that will last for the rest of my entire life.
I was fortunate to do dual enrollment here during my high school years, and have a great start on getting my Associate degree by the time I graduate high school. It was a tremendous amount of work, but well worth my efforts! I am grateful to the administration at both my high school and Lackawanna College for supporting my unique and ambitious plan.
