Since I have been at Lawson State Community College, it has been the best experience ever. Everyone is so open to help you with all the different things you need help with in the different departments. Lawson State offer multiple opportunities to fit each students needs. They have night classes for those who have to work in the day time. Lawson State has a fantastic student tutoring program that has helped me complete semesters that I thought I would never have a chance in.
