Am learning a lot
The Teachers are good people they understand some events that happen with the students and help you succeed. They are more then happy to help you grasp the lesson and lectures. We have a wide variety of faulty from all over the world who dedicated to there students and put them first. and all you have too do is ask.
Am enjoying being here
You have a teacher student relationship that you are able to easily to get in touch with your professor. and by using the pasport system which allows you too email contact check your grade and register for classes also i enjoy the two campuses one in downtown Laredo where you access to music department and the historical buildings, and access to downtown. In the south campus it quit very chill learning environment
Bang for the buck
LCC is priced very good and they keep their costs low and keep the high quality of education up.
Tips for prospective students
First Please summit your application then you then make a appointment with a advisor and if possible pick your career before going. You do not it is ok our adviser's will lead the right direction. Another note make sure that you do not repeat classes and beware of your class and stick to a degree plan. if your like me please see the financial aid office see if you qualify for funds. If you do not make sure to pay for your classes early and ask about payment plans.

Did learn a lot
Many people believe that community colleges are a joke, but they really are not. Laredo Community College (LCC) taught me not only academically, but socially as well. I learned to build on different social, self, and academic skills that made me a better student and over all person. I was taught to work with different people and the responsibility of juggling a full class schedule of about 15 to 16 hours a semester on top of extra-curricular activities. I was honored to be selected as a student of the LC.C. Honors Program where I learned the values of teamwork, hard work, and studying. I will admit that some of the professors treat their classroom and students as if still at the high school level, but there are a handful of the strict, but knowledgeable professors that teach in what can be known as a four year university level class. LCC taught me well how to be a better student. I feel prepared to enter and succeed at a four year university level after all I've learned.
Did enjoy being here
It was easy to make friends and be close to classmates due to the smaller class size than at the university level. There are also a lot of different clubs on campus that involve different interest for students. There are academic, volunteer, major based, music, and art clubs. Joining such clubs will make it easier to make friends and meet future classmates. The environment of the campus is safe and friendly. There are many social and academic services provided by the college to your advantage such as free tutoring.
Bang for the buck
There are many opportunities for students to receive financial help. LCC has scholarship programs, work study, scholarships and grants for students in sports, and various scholarships that are awarded every semester for hard work and dedication. I was fortunate enough to receive a full scholarship to LCC. The program did have certain requirements I had to follow, but it was worth it. I had my first two years of college paid for with the exchange of a hard work and determination for success on my behalf. Many people believe they are wasting their money by studying for their basics at a community college, but they are not. The college does have fees on top of books and tuition, but it is not an unaffordable amount. The difference between receiving your basics at LCC or a four year university is the price you pay for the same or a similar class.

I am attending Laredo Community College I been only once to the campus and I liked it, so I know my years there are going to be worth it.
Tips for prospective students
Make your decision as soon as possible about what degree you are going to go and try to stick it. An advisor is willing to help everytime you have questions or concerns about it.
Academic Rigor
LCC offer a great variety of vocational degrees and associate's to either transfer to a university or join the workforce right away.
What to do for fun

I Love this place they make the transition from highschool to college so fluid and have many great professors to learn from. I really believe in the saying you must learn to crawl before you can run and as part of the community college I feel they teach you and prepare you for universities as well as social interactions and the like.
Tips for prospective students
Buy the books early and talk to your professors and advisors they are there to help you.
What to do for fun
There is a game room and the athletic department is a lot of fun while working out, also you can socialize with others in the lunch area.
Clubs and Activities
There are many clubs and are always open for new people.
