Academic Flexibility: There have been issues with there not being certain classes offered at all at some campuses. This current semester I'm taking classes from three different campuses because that was the only way I could fit them all in my schedule.

Overall Experience: The school is unique in that there are so many campuses with their own unique feel and culture. However, the quality of education and teaching is not very good and I would not pay for it unless I had to. Even if some of the classes were free, I would still not attend.

Overall Experience: Like I've said previously, the quality of professors is not great. However, I have also had issues with there not being a variety of courses. I choose Lonestar partly because it was close, however I was forced to take some online classes for a couple things because the only campus they offered those courses on was an hour to an hour and 15 minutes away. I've taken classes at two campuses so far, and only because they don't offer every class in their system at every campus. The class sizes themselves were fine, there was no issue there, and the style varied per teacher, which was generally lackluster.

Online Courses: The online classes I have taken were not great. It might have been the teacher and/or subject, but overall the platform itself needs work. There is no easy way to receive notifications about uploaded assignments, quizzes, lessons, etc. without logging into the Lonestar System and navigating to each class. I have had a couple issues with the platform itself not notifying me of new quizzes and assignments even after logging in, and I almost lost letter grades for it. There is little to no feeling of being in a class even though there were forums. It felt more like a one-on-one lecture, but by someone who was distracted by 20 other people.

Student Body: The student body is diverse in religious, ethnic, political, and sexual areas, and there are quite a few activities to participate in across the different campuses from multicultural plays, art, and dance to diverse clubs.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid was a little confusing to understand at first, but is fairly easy to fill out. As for the tuition, I don't really see the value of it. I spent money on a class that basically taught me things I already knew, but was supposed to be the next level. Some of the math classes had little example of real-world application, or in my field.

Career Services: There isn't really a post-grad center that I know of.

2 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: Lots of irrelevant subjects are required, like government and history for a computer science major, there are no internship/job opportunities, and the curriculum for programming is extremely repetitive.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: Some of my professors have been good, some bad. From my experience its about 50/50 good and bad. The class registration is easy, but their payment plan for classes is atrocious.

Campus Resources: Computer-lab, library, tutoring on most subjects, small student center.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: My professors have been very helpful at this campus. The campus itself is very peaceful and relaxing because of the pond.river that runs along the whole campus.

5 College Freshman

Online Courses: I have taken two online classes so far and they are amazing! The professors help you tremendously on anything online without you needing to meet them in there office. Anything you need help either its the class work or tech support they are there.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The students who work there aren't very helpful and often confuse information. There are only two people who work there who can really help you.

3 College Freshman

Career Services: My college is a community college I'm not quite sure just how the job prospects are.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I recently changed majors and its not offered at this certain Lone Star Campus i go to. My advisor has helped me with picking my classes and helping find many online classes for my major so i wont have to drive to another campus often. So far, I haven't needed to drive to another campus.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The school has so many available resources for every subject. The professor are always there to help you and sometimes even stay a bit longer just so you can fully understand what's happening. Class registration is a crazy time but the advisors don't ever make you feel rushed with the whole process. They sit and talk about you and really get to know you. The help you find the best thing for you.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The campus is really great and so are the professors. I enjoy online classes mostly because they don't overwork you and explain everything in such detail. The professors on campus help you with anything you might need help.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: They're nice and friendly there, always answer my questions.

5 College Freshman

Online Courses: I love my online classes. They dont over load you with work and explain everything in detail.

3 College Freshman

College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: I dont not have financial aid but the tuition is pretty cheap.

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.
