Very friendly and well organized school! A great place to start with teachers who are very helpful and will help you succeed. I am very pleased with this school and would recommend it to other students who want to attend an affordable and close to home school. The only dislike is the cafeteria food and no restaurants near the college to grab a bite before class.
Review Lamar State College - Port Arthur
Instructors for online courses are too picky about assignments. If they are not completed to the tee of what they expect, even if they did not explain what they precisely wanted, your grade is affected.
Courses are not scheduled conveniently. My 3rd level process classes were only offered at 2:30. They should have been wither early in the morning, or in the evening if the were only going to pick one time to offer the courses.
