I go to Lone Star College- Cy-fair campus and I absolutely love it! I feel like I am at a University at times, the campus is huge and the professors I have had are excellent. They courses are tough but Cy-fair has a lot of resources available on site. They have a tutoring center in the library and a wide selection of books, fiction and non-fiction. The professors are willing to sit down and work with you if you need it, they are pretty flexible but they will tell you when a good time would be and to consider their office hours. Most are quick to respond to emails, but it would be better to address questions face to face. Overall, the school is great. If you are looking for a community college to start off with, I would highly recommend any campus of Lone Star, but I am a little biased of Cy-Fair, so if you are able, I would point you to that campus!

Lone Star College has many great professors. The club coordinators are also very involved and want to make a difference. The only bad experience I had was with the Financial Aid department. They give alot of very different information every time you speak to someone. They also tend to be more rude. I know dealing with people and money can be difficult, but they were really rude. Other than that my experience was really good!
Overall I have had a wonderful experience here at Lone Star College! I have been going for almost 2 years now and have no regrets for choosing a small community college over my large local university.
On my first day of class I was very shy, uncomfortable, and didn't say much in class unless someone asked me something. My biology professor noticed this and being somewhat of an introvert herself tried to help me to open up more and encouraged me to ask her for help if I needed any. She was so caring and I will never forget it. I am no longer afraid to ask professors questions in or outside of class.
