    Campus Safety

    So far its been good. I havent had any bad issues come up. I always see the cop and security driving around.

    Clubs and Activities

    I am always busy with different activities here. I never seem to have any down time.

    Great for these types of students

    Good for small town country kids that dont want to go to a big university.

    Bang for the buck

    I feel like they could change some things with dorms, meal plans, that would make it more cost efficient. But I do believe it is good learning and athletics.

    What to do for fun

    I always go ride for fun. But they do have a lot of movie nights and bowling nights that are free!

    Food and Dining

    I wish they had different meal plans. I pay for a ton of food that I dont eat and college is expensive to begin with. Breakfast is the best.

    Dorm Life

    Your living in a dorm, its definitly not the greatest thing. Showers and bathrooms are kept clean, rooms are kinda small(I need more closet space). Good over all if you get a good roommate.

    Academic Rigor

    The academics are good, I have enjoyed all of my classes for the most part. My teachers have all been very understanding and helpful. They really want to help you succeed.

    Tips for prospective students

    Its great if you want to start off small, if you want to go to a big town I wouldnt attend Lamar. LCC has a lot of great athletic programs to follow with good variety. If your heading down a horse path, this is the school for you.

    In three sentences

    I have enjoyed living in the small town of Lamar and attending LCC. The Horse Trainging and Management Program has been perfect for me and I have learned a lot. Competing on the Rodeo Team has also been another great aspect for me.

    Campus Safety

    Since LCC is in a small rural city you do not have to worry about you safety, as you would in much bigger cities such as Denver etc. We also have a security guard who patrols the campus day and night.

    Great for these types of students

    LCC is great if your are wanting to become a Nurse, Business major, and has an amazing agriculture program. But, is also great for a student looking for a good education at a affordable price! LCC has updated nursing equipment and the hoarse department has its own training facility!

    Bang for the buck

    LCC is very affordable, yet is gives you a great education. LCC has a GREAT business department, as well as nursing. It also offers many other degree's that cant be beat for the price.

    What to do for fun

    There are many things to do for fun that LCC hosts for their students. They have; free bowling nights, dances, dinners, and much more. Also the town has a movie theatre, bowling Ali, and many restaurants.

    Academic Rigor

    Even though LCC, is a Community college do not let that sway your opinion. LCC has many different programs that will challenge you and make you work but, because it is a small college you will get the one on one help with the professor!

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure and check out the campus before you apply anywhere! Make sure that the college is what your looking for and it has your major! Make sure to get a study system down because the first semester is much different that high school.

    In three sentences

    Lamar Community College is awesome, it gives you the feeling like the teachers are actually there to help you! It is in a small town so the class sizes are amazing, so you get the one on one help that I love! The best thing about LCC is that it is very affordable and gives you a great education!

    Greek Life

    None.

    Clubs and Activities

    They are there but one must ask the instructors about them because they are not heavily advertised.

    Great for these types of students

    Athletes who struggled in high school academically or did not receive NCAA Division 1 or 2 scholarships because of the missed deadline or abilities. Baseball is very big in Lamar, one player has been drafted by the Chicago Cubs from when I attended.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    None.

    Bang for the buck

    Lamar Community College was not the greatest choice financially that I have made compared to its quality.

    What to do for fun

    Movies, ATV, horse riding, and sports.

    Food and Dining

    Unfortunately the experience of the food was unpleasant. It was sometimes better to not eat than to do so.

    Dorm Life

    I was personally not a fan because of the inconsiderate nature and rambunctious attitude of the students. Some were very nice but of the majority, many were athlete's who expected to get everything that they wanted.

    Academic Rigor

    As previously stated, the academic side was not as difficult as other colleges/universities.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure that the credits to future colleges/universities will transfer before you attend or apply to Lamar Community College.

    In three sentences

    Lamar Community College is a place of assisted learning at a below average scale. Of the 45 hours I have completed, about 20 challenged me. The teachers who cared about the students desired success for each student and it shows in their curriculum.

    Campus Safety

    Very small amount of crime in the entire town

    Clubs and Activities

    they have an amazing rodeo team

    Great for these types of students

    Great for Country minded students who want small class sizes and a small hick town to live in.

    Dorm Life

    The rooms were very small for you and your roommate. The hallways Stunk so bad I got a head ache.

    In three sentences

    A small hick town where a country boy or girl will fit in very well. I was thrilled with the Horse Training and management and the Equine Busness Management programs. The horses seemed well taken care of and very happy.
