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 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.
