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 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.
