I think Lone Star College, while not perfect by any means, is a very good community college— especially for the price. It’s affordable, and the majority of teachers are insightful and understanding. I can count on one hand how many times I’ve come to a professor to bring up something stressing me about their course and wasn’t treated with the highest of respect. I admire how much the faculty truly wants the students to enjoy learning, and their efforts have reawakened my love for researching and discovering new things.

Gabriella - 05/13/2022

It is a community college so there is no "in-campus" housing. I just go there for classes, I don't really participate in anything beside class. I have really enjoyed my time at LSC. I attended the Kingwood campus and was met with a few professors that I didn't like. The rest were wonderfully passionate intellectuals who were happy to be there and to teach.

Jenna - 12/31/2021

Excellent school for completing an undergraduate program or other classes for low cost. Fantastic staff, especially in programs like the Honors program. Lots of events, organizations, and other opportunities you would not necessarily expect from a community college including a great drama and music department, lots of clubs, and activities in person and online spread throughout the semester. Good academics with small class sizes so you get more one-on-one assistance in classes.

Allyiah - 10/26/2021

Lone Star is a 2-year community college, so there is no on-campus housing, but the environment is great. As an online-only student, I found most professors to be very accessible and unbiased. There are a few who grade based off of how your personal views line up with there own, which is not their job description. I do wish that it was easier to read their bookstore selection online as it is total garbage and unreadable most of the time.

    If I could go back and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would tell myself to take advantage of all the pre-college opportunities that are available to me, like dual enrollment credits. By having those resources and credits out of the way I would have been able to pursue more into my career sooner. I would also tell myself to manage my time better. The transition to college life was a hard switch and to have good time management skills prior to the transition would have made everything that much easier.

  4. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    When asked the worst thing about a college I love, only one thing comes to mind, and that?s having a good professor. In high school I had an amazing Biology teacher and guess what, I love Biology. When you?re around somebody that loves a subject--you want to learn. At North Montgomery College (now Loan Star), I have had some amazing professors and I have had some not so amazing. I long for a system where professors share their teaching style and methods and students post accurate feedback about professors or blog with upcoming students.

  8. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    Once you are accepted and have your first semester behind you they tend to leave you to fend for yourself and don't seem as willing to provide help. At least not the go-out-of-thier-way maner that you had when you first attend. Also the inconsistence of information given in the Advising office & financial aid is a big problem, I often found myself having to fact check what was being told to me or just left confused, so come with questions & information in hand or you can easily get led astray.

  11. What is your overall opinion of this school?

    Having attended this college for two years, I am pleasantly surprised with both the affordability and the dedication of the staff for providing an experience that I will never forget. The campus is pleasantly landscaped and has a variety of student amenities that make attending here a stellar experience. Although the advising staff means well, they do still have problems with what they give for "advice". Bear that in mind when you come on campus and are not sure of how to proceed in your course list. Check with instructors that know the program degree that you are trying to acquire, rather than just the advisers.

  14. What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

    There are a mixture of many different groups at the campus. You may see baggy clothes, loud groups, quiet study groups, some in gym clothes, others in country jeans, and even on occasion you will see students in their PJ's... Usually around finals. There is a sence of relaxation and enjoyment in one area and a sence of serious book study going on in another area. The campus has such a large amount of room that people are able to find places to be themselves, areas to knock out large amounts of study material and then come together as a whole with a great sence of being one during the activities put on by the campus clubs.

  19. What are your classes like?

    They're all core credit classes, so you can get them out of the way before tranferring. Even though there's tens of thousands of students, class sizes are pretty small. It almost feels like 13th grade, but in a good way. Most professors are always available to answer your questions after class, during their office hours, or over e-mail. You'll meet a lot of non-traditional students in your classes. I feels like most people here are at least 22, with some sprinklings of people in their 30s and 40s. They have a lot of life experience, which makes in-class discussions pretty interesting. Overall, I'm satisfied with my classes. Just make sure to go on RateMyProfessor so you don't get stuck with a bad professor.
