Lamar State College - Orange Reviews

The college president decided to shorten the spring 2017 semester three weeks into the semester, due to forgetting about a "prior engagement," obviously creating havoc for students and professors.
I had trouble with financial aid due to being a transfer student and having an AS degree, even with a 3.8 GPA I was placed on academic probation . After numerous letters and phone calls to inquire why, finally I was told because I was " too close to my Pell Grant limit." I had to write an appeal twice. Finally I was awarded . I took two courses, one online and one on campus. I loved the professors, but the course I took on campus, College Algebra, although the professor was fantastic, I found the students RUDE and disruptive and disrespectful to both myself and the professor, which made for a difficult learning environment. I passed the class and finished the semester but transferred.
Review Lamar State College - Orange
I absolutely love Lamar Orange. It's not a typical college experience, it's more. The professors WANT to help students achieve and they know what they're teaching. The smaller classes help with succeeding and getting help from professors. The campus is also beautiful, and the water front is right across the street from some of the buildings and it's a beautiful sight. I wish LSCO had bachelors degrees because I would love to continue going there rather than transferring to Lamar Univeristy.
I started out at Lamar University, but then moved to Lamar Orange. I love it! Not only is it cheaper in price but it more laid back instead of really complicated. The teachers are more helpful and have more time to help. The emphasis they put on Nursing is amazing! They have a really great simulation lab to learn in and practice before you actually have to practice on a real person! I wish I had started here, but I'm glad I am here now.
