Student Reviews
  • I think Lamar University is a great college. It is very diverse, and there is lots of on campus activities to do in your free time. I would say the food here is improving under new management.. The college is under construction, so walking to classes around the gates will be pretty hectic if you are running late to classes. Academic wise, Lamar University provides a vast amount of programs to help if struggling. There are plenty of resources Lamar University has a Barnes and Noble that Price matches; A Facebook Page called LU Book Swap, if you want to buy books directly from other undergraduates and graduate students. Program named STAARS tutoring in the library that has upperclassmen open to weekly appointment to have to specifically dedicate a hour to help in whatever classes signed up for. Remember to get active on campus and do community service in free time, it looks great on resumes! Lamar University provides over 150 organizations including many fraternities and sororities, so if you live on campus you have no excuse to sit in your dorm all day.
  • My overall opinion for Lamar University, it that the campus still holds my interest. I still like the college, and the teachers will help me pursue my goals that I set through for myself. The food is always on point and the food truck also has great food too. The student atmosphere is always on the rise, everyone getting active in something that is on campus. Everyone truly enjoys themselves, and I cam wait to be part of the alumni in the future.
  • It is amazing. It has an atmosphere where everyone can find something they like and feel comfortable. A Starbucks, Chick-fil-A, and Panda Express will be coming soon .I'm really happy that it is a small campus rather than bug because everything is just a walk away.
