Lamar University Reviews
Review Lamar University
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.
Really enjoy going to school here at LU. Classes are small enough so you do not get lost in the crowds, yet large enough to get the full "college experience." Plus the Engineering program is one of the best in the country!
The environment is great and very safe. All of the students and staff are very friendly and willing to help in any way. There is always advising available for anyone that has any questions about their classes, schedules, or anything. Classes can be a bit tough but seeing your professors when they can to ask them questions is always helpful and they will make it easier for you to understand. Studying very hard is definitely required to be as successful as possible. There are always different event going on around campus for students to interact and get involved as well as to relax their minds for a while. Lamar is a great college.
