Lamar University Reviews
Review Lamar University
I loved how easy it was to get involved and participate in student leadership on campus. Lamar has provided so many opportunities for me, from academic internships, student clubs, wonderful professors and networking opportunities!
Lamar is a relatively small university. This is great because you can get a more personal relationship with your professors. The student benefits are nice as well. These include access to the rec, free tutoring at the library, and free admission to EVERY sporting event held on campus football, volleyball, soccer, baseball, softball, basketball, and tennis. The dorms are incredibly comfy and private as well. There are multiple food options that are located all over campus. There is a lot of construction on campus, but when it is completed there will be a new and improved student center and a science and technology building. Along with those the new honors college building has just been completed. The array of clubs, societies, and Greek life is wide and plentiful. With the hindsight I have of Lamar, I would still chose to attend college here if I were a senior in high school again.
Lamar is a great school. Very diverse. Great professors. I just hate the construction they started. It's a hassle going on new routes to get to a class. The food on campus is "iffy". Some days are good, some days are bad. The dorm I live in is really nice. I made sure to make myself feel at home! Especially since my roommate is my best friend from high school. Also there's some really nice people there as well.
