Lawson State Community College is a very good school to go to if you're planning to save money by attending a 2 year before transferring to a 4 year college. Their overall rating for academics to me is a 10+. All of the professors will go an extra mile to help you and make sure that you succeed. This is not a "party" school...you are here to get your education and leave unless you are apart of any organizations or sports!
Lawson State Community College is great, the way that I heard about Lawson was when an instructor came to talk to our school and they should us what they had to offer. Everything was great I applied like two moths after I graduated Highschool and I been enrolled since then. They made everything easy to enroll in classes and it's just been a great school if you have any kinds of problems they have a specific person you can talk to and ask questions. I am enrolled in the GM ASEP program and the instructors are great when it comes to answering questions.
