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.
I've visited Lamar University, on a tour from my high school. It's way bigger than I thought it was, they have a lot of space and different areas on campus. Including the cafeteria, it has a lot of varieties to eat from. People greeted us and showed us rooms and different areas at the University. I spoke with one professor and she was so nice and about her business, I could tell I would genuinely learn in her class, if I was to have her as a professor.
