When I started here at Lamar State College Port Arthur in Fall 2009, I thought I just wanted to go to classes and make it through work. Just waiting for the experience to pass as quickly as possible was not what I experienced. There is so much opportunity for growth at this wonderful place. There are so many daily challenges to you as student, a person, and an intellect. There is no way you cannot grow and become a better you. College life is what you make it and I have realized that I don't want to leave any time soon.
