My overall experience with Lamar State College Port Arthur is great! I chose to attend a local community college, straight out of high school because it was closer to home and I am more aware of my surroundings since I started co-enrollment here. I love the professors because they aren't lenient by any means, but most try to work with the schedule we have because they also understand life sometimes has complications.

Lamar State College Port Arthur is an affordable way to further your college career. Although it’s only a 2 year college, you are able transfer your credits to a 4 year university. However, if you’re looking for the college experience, such as spirit, sororities, clubs, internship opportunities, etc., this place is not for you. There are people who encourage the students to be more involved and they also have clubs but it’s still lacking. Help academically and financially is easy to get, they are happy to assist and they are very easy to talk to. In conclusion, LSCPA is a place to further the college career but not for the experience.
Very small so its more hands on learning. More one on one with Professors. Great for students who doesnt like big crowded classrooms, great for students who know themselves and know a bigger college wouldnt fit them or benefit them in any way.
