Lone Star College is excellent in accessibility. With multiple campuses across the Houston area, there is no reason anyone with a true desire to further their education can not do so. Being a community college, the costs are reasonable as well compared to larger universities, and the student to teacher ratio is such that there is definitely opportunity for one on one instruction. The professors that I have encountered have been genuinely concerned with the success of their students.

Our campus activities director has received awards for her accomplishments. All activities are a lot of fun and you never want to miss one. Our library has recently been renovated and it accommodates so many different student needs. Its the perfect place for students to hang out, as long as you whisper.

It Is What It Is – I'm not crazy about Dabney. I've had almost a dozen teachers there, and I've only really liked two of them. The few instructors who clearly know what they're talking about generally show little to no concern for the actual students. The ones who DO try to interact with the students are very unhelpful academically; their information is scattered and hard to understand, their tests are extremely hard to pass (according to the school in general - not just me), they come across as mentally unstable, or they wouldn't even try to teach the students anything.
I have not been extremely thrilled with my experience at Dabney, but considering that I had to start out at a community college for financial reasons, I try to look on the bright side and be grateful that I have been able to get a college education at ALL. I know that the institution as a whole tries to make things as educationally convenient as possible for the students, but what can I say - you work with what you get!
