Lone Star College System Reviews

An affordable college with resources of a 4 year university. Many counselors, advisers as well as free tutors to help you in your journey. Classes are small and most proffesors are overqualified. Easy to get one on one help and to have any questions answered during office hours. Clubs of every kind, or you can even start your own! Honors college is truly one of the best in USA, providing students with many opportunitues to advance their academic resume for transfering, such as completing numerous undegraduate research studies on the level of juniors and seniors in 4 year universities. And to top it off - scholarships. Lonestar has great return value, compared to its affordability. The honors college especially provides financial aid to its students from merit and full scholarships, to free international capstone travel.
Overall, my experience with LSC have been outstanding, and I wish I could have my Bachelors done here as well.

I started with five classes, online and in person. Online classes helped me build a schedule with my school and other necessities. I had work in the morning and went to my person-on-person classes at night time. I've made A's on subjects I thought I wouldn't pass in high school. I went up to 90s and up at Lone Star. A tutoring session can be on person or online. I make a tutoring date in seconds and that works with my schedule. Sometimes I went to the CASA building after a long test to relax, there is ping pong tables, video games TVs, a hockey table, and more! If a student decides to work in the facility, they get discounts or money to pay their textbooks and other school needs. Lone star is also more cheap than other schools. A class could be 200 where in another college would be 25,000. I am taking classes here before transferring to another college where they would charge me thousands of more dollars for the same clases. I'm thankful for being part of the Lone Star College System.
The thing about Lone Star that keeps drawing me in is how good counselors and advisoes are. I've been let down by how some professors don't like to try and help their students really learn in their own way and try to shove information down our throats in the way that they learn. So, when I've met with the Lone Star counselors they've helped me stay above the water. They do not let you drown! I love that. Plus the advisers are great at helping you chose your classes so those kinds of disappointments do not happen twice!
