Lawson State Community College has been very beneficial to my education. I have worked hard throughout high school and continuing my education is a non- negotiable for me. I will like to become a Clinical Psychologist and attending Lawson State is teaching me the fundamentals of it all just like a university would. I hear nothing but great things about Lawson State Community College and I'm glad to be apart. I wish people would stop downgrading two year colleges because they provide just as many opportunities as universities. Most of all I know Lawson State Community College is always tending to their students financially, for example you guys helped me finish multiple college classes while still in high school. The grants and programs Lawson State provides helps so many students who otherwise may not be able to go to college. Lawson State Community College is a great opportunity to get the foundation of long term careers started and a way to save money.

What I like about Lawson state it's like a home away from home. Lawson state community college is a really good place to be because everything is so hands-on learning also everything you need to succeed from the classes, the programs, and staff members. At Lawson state, everyone always is available to help and assist you with any problem you may have. So I would recommend Lawson State to anyone, who is looking for a good place to start especially looking for a good education for a lower price. Once again I would recommend Lawson State promise you won't regret it.
Great options for summer schedule. The professors are very helpful and can always be reach via email. The campus is easily accessible. Lawson is a beautiful, welcoming place where everyone is welcome! There is an overwhelming sense of community to be found by anyone from any background, and academics are challenging and prepare you for anything you may want to pursue after college. The atmosphere and school spirit are always lively, and it's an overall great place to be.
