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.
Review Lawson State Community College - Birmingham
I love Lawson!!!!!!!!!!! I love the small class sizes and how attentive the professors are. I actually work for one of my old professors now so of course the networking is awesome. I feel that the sense of belonging is so strong here even if your not involved in any extracurricular activities in school. I would like to see the availability of course expand so that there are more chances to take more courses I love being a Cougar I graduated May of 2015 and still take classes with the dual enrollment program through Alabama A&M University. This is a great place to further your education.
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.
