Campus Life

If you're looking for a place where you can grow and develop into a leader who will make a difference after you leave here, you're in the right place. Whether it's through athletics, one of our many groups, or connecting peer-to-peer with students across campus, we want to make sure you feel like you're a part of the Lawson State community.

When You Win, We All Win!

My favorite part of Lawson is the student life and how the staff always go out of their way to make sure the students feel welcome.

A Safe and Welcoming Environment

Lawson State is one of the few community colleges that has a residential facility available for full-time students at the institution.  It also prides itself on having a safe campus that supports student learning.

Our on-campus residential buildings will give you everything you need to thrive here at Lawson State! Take a closer look at what we have to offer.

A safe campus is of the utmost importance. Learn about the campus safety resources.

We have student recreational activities on both campuses.  Visit the Student Centers on each campus.
