Lamar State College - Port Arthur Reviews
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.
I like how at ease everyone made me feel during the registration process and answered all of my questions and concerns. There were more colleges in my immediate area that I could have enrolled in, but Lamar University is worth the extra trip. This is the second time I have attended this university. Other colleges that I applied to made me feel as though it did not matter if I attended their institution or not. I have never felt that way with Lamar University Port Arthur. I could not think of anywhere else that I would like to go.
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.
