Lamar University Reviews
I have been at Lamar University for a year and a half and so far I have had a very good experience overall. I have had my bad experiences with a professor or two but you can not avoid that no matter where you go. I love the residence halls! You have your own bedroom share a living room and bathroom with one other person and they heavily work with you if you want a particular roommate. Dining hall has its flaws for sure but they are taking steps in the right direction making their food fresher and tastier. Overall I have been happy with the classes and living conditions.
I like Lamar because of the small atmosphere, and the home feeling of the campus. The Professors are nice as well, I have taken many cmmunication calsses and all my professors are very down to earth and extremely understanding. The accessibility of the campus is also very convienent, everything is close together and easy access for most of the campus. Some things that i would like to see change, are how late they keep the food stores open, and the dining hall. College kids are up very late and are alwasy busy, I know there were times when I was up late studying and there would be nothing to eat because all the stores on campus are closed and none of the dining places would be open either. I also think it would be a great idea if the library was kept open later, instead of closing at 11:40, students need time to be able to get things done in a tinmley manner and making them leave a place where their work is suppose to be getting done is not a very productive plan.
I am enrolled in Lamar as a graduate student through an online program. I have not been able to see the student life, housing, or other campus experiences, but I will say communicating with the school and the staff has been an excellent experience. The staff, faculty, and professors are all very friendly and are willing to work with you to accomplish your goals. Everything is very organized, well-explained, and they continually check in on you to make sure you are not struggling. The program is set up for you to succeed, and they always make themselves available when needed.
