The experience at Lawson State Community College is truly a positive journey. I will definately reccomend Lawson State Community College to friends, family as well as anyone else I meet along the way that is in search of a good school that is fun to attend, the faculty and staff are over the top friendly and operate with a high degree of professionalism.
Excellent professors, I prefer the Bessemer campus. I just wish they offered more classes there. Very disorganized in the financial aid office though. Also it is hard to get answers as to why a class is not being offered that you need when you are about to gradaute, I was basicly told to go to another school right before my last semester to graduate.
My major is (DDT) Drafting design and Technology, in this program I have a lot of options on what career I would like to work in. Some of the options is architecture, electrial engineering, automotive, engineering, and in my case graphic design. This program teaches me the basics of AutoCAD and how I can use it to become an animator or a freelance graphic designer.
