4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My experience in the Lone Star College System these past three semesters have been astonishing. Their way of pursuing education pushes me to strive for something great. The professors there never allow you to lose focus (meaning that they are not boring and won't put you to sleep) and they add their own feel to their teaching that makes it an enjoyable experience. The classrooms were not crowded (based on the classes I attended) and the students were nice. At least once a week they'd be a small thing going on; for example, during Veterans Day students were able to create a dog tag with whatever they wanted it to say on it. And also before finals, they were giving out these delicious-tasting pancakes with several topping such as butter, chocolate chips, and chocolate syrup. Overall Its a college worth attending which is definitely a reason why I'd choose my school to attend again.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: In my experience, stress and time-inefficiency is self-imposed, as my professors have always been readily available for the most part. As for credit exmptions and transfers, integration of AP scores and Dula Credit coursework from high school was not difficult itself.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: As far as I see, online courses work out pretty well for students as long as they have the inner discipline to keep up with assignments for which there are no reminders.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: As far as my experience goes in college, I would say that the curses that I have gotten the opportunity to take have been beneficial and challenging enough to keep me active academically. Of course, I have mostly completed honors-designated coursework, but I have found a similar experience in the non-honors coursework as well.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Being a two-year institution, there are many ways in which we as students can decide to branch out into the world. Some come to get a certification for a job, others come to get an Associate's degree for direct entry into marketable careers, and others come to cover coursework inexpensively before transferring to a more expensive location.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: My school accomodates the proper coursework for students looking to major in Mechanical Engineering. There is a diverse set of courses that are transferable and taught well here.

Overall Experience: When I speak of my school, I really mean the Honors College within my Lone Star College System's Campus. Thanks to the dedicated professors and directors that we have, the college experience through the perspective of the honors coursework has been both fruitful and enjoyable. While perhaps the general data that defines the education at these campuses may be low, I am glad to say that I have found a niche among the top-most percent among the distribution of students in terms of academic performance.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I haven't transferred to another institution yet, so I do not believe I can answer this question.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Online courses tend to be good and bad depending on who is asked. Personally, I do not do online course work, except for this one time i took a computer class online and it was alright. Other than that I stick to face-to-face classes. I learn better that way.

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: There are only certificates and associates of science or art available at my school.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors are great. A lot of professors challenge their students academically and extra curricular. They want each student to succeed and be successful. The courses are just as same or most are better than four year institutions. Class sizes are at max 30 people and the variety of courses offered are pretty good.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school is a community college so it doesn't have as much as other four year institutions. It does offer a variety of internships but it varies by departments. Our career services department does do a lot for the students. They hold a variety of trips to four year institutions as well as get companies to come to campus and put on a booth for students to talk to certain job representatives around our community.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I am an engineering major who is about to get my associates of science degree from my institution. Although my institution doesn't offer many engineering programs, they do offer a lot of the mathematical and science classes that are able to transfer to a four year institution as well as count towards my associates. The course load for math and science classes do not differ much from what I will encounter at my next institution. They are engaging and not easy. They do require work and time well spent for each subject. The facilities where we meet and do our work are great. Small classrooms so professors get one on one time with their students to help them out in any issue they are encountering in class.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experience has been great. Getting involved in after school organizations has truly helped me develop friendships as well as staff relations. I know who to go to for information regarding certain topics regarding my education and the faculty and staff are aware of who I am and are truly helpful.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: The TRAC Center at Lone Star College organizes a meeting every Wednesday, in which universities representatives visit the campus to provide any kind of information to students. Being a chemical engineering major at Lone Star is not difficult. Advisors have helped me to decide my major and to keep in track with my transferring process.

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Lone Star college has a whole section for assistance to students who are planning to transfer. The TRAC Center offers advisor who help students to plan their career and follow up with tranfer requirements

5 College Senior

Online Courses: Because I am full-time student and part-time employee, schedule can be very difficult. However, online classes have allowed me to complete those courses at my own pace and time.

3 College Senior

Career Services: Lone Star does not offer many option for graduate students, but there are diverse programs that qualify to get a job.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Lone Star College offers several professors, who are willing to help you even after the class is done. Throughout my experience here, I have no complaint when it comes to my professors. Each one of them has influenced me in a certain way and has been an example to follow.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Lone Star College offers numerous kind of jobs inside campus. Not only it offers work-study position for American students who demonstrate financial need, but also it offers different positions available for international students like myself. I have been a Lone Star employee for almost 2 years.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Lone Star College System is full of friendly people who are willing to help you reach your goals. It offers many opportunities to guide students to make their way to a big university.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The Lone Star College system is the best because you can find easier access to apply and complete. In LoneStar you could take all your elective classes and then transfer to the university for your major. I highly recommend people to take or go to LoneStar first because it is cheap and you will get the college experience.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The professors I've had are amazing.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have heard its great, but haven't seen it.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Many students believe the overall experience at Lone Star College is great. There are many great teachers who have prepared their students for the future challenges of four-year colleges. The workload is designed as not being too hard but not too easy—somewhere in the middle. The grades are weighted the same as any four-year college, but there might be a difference in teaching materials because most four-year college teachers assign more books in order to advance the learning levels of their students.

Still, students recommend their fellow students to enroll in this community college because not only does it save you money, but it also gives you more time if you are uncertain about your future path. There are some things that this campus misses (such as an abudance of student clubs, activities, and athletic centers), but if someone is looking for great education with less cost, Lone Star is a great option—without any doubt.
