When I first arrived at Lawson State I honestly did not know what to expect. It was not my first choice of colleges but I’m glad I ended up here and not some big university. I love that it’s small enough that you can communicate with your professors in class and not through email or a hundred more students. I also love that it’s big enough to make new friends every year, Lawson has honestly been a blessing in disguise for me, because some of my high school classmates or peers that went off to big Universities ended right back where I am today. They did not now how to balance out school, and parties so it was a horrible distraction and hindered their learning experience. I Would recommend Lawson state to any high school student getting ready to apply for colleges the environment is very safe, the professors are great teachers and even better communicators, the food Is great, and the people you meet there will make your college experience a great one.
Lawson State is a small community college that I have been attending for about 3 1/2 years. I have had great teachers through out my time at Lawson. They have been very kind and helpful. One bonus of being able to attend here is that it is a small school so you can get to know your teachers and classmates and if you need help the teachers can set aside time to help you if you need it!
