LASC is such a great turn around college, I have taken classes there for years and seeing the campus being remodeled to a beautiful campus is amazing. It finally matches the people that work there. I absolutely love that any time I go to get help, if it is with counseling or admissions, I can tell they are really trying to help me succeed and not just trying to get me out of the office. It's in a location that is easy access to many people of color and low socioeconomic status which means the students are really relatable and diverse!

I love it! All the counselors and teachers there are available to you. There are many programs available to help you with financial aid. They have workshops available to help you gain information on financial aid, transferring to a 4- year college, how to write a resume for a job, etc.
I lost the diversity, the classes they have to offer. The campus is easy to navigate and there's something for everyone. The professor's are very fun and full of life, they keep the class interested in learning. There's always something to do on campus and the students their aren't just fresh out of high school but people of all ages. The students their are very friendly and diverse, they also love to help one another. Each college has their flaws but this one has little to none. I love how the environment there is so positive and full of life, joy and great opportunities. It's literally one of the greatest colleges out their that is over looked.
