Overall great school, the staff and professors are great people. I and doing the distant learning program and they have been wonderful about the whole registration process. My husband also started his masters program at Lamar, and I'm getting my younger sister to look into it. I think Lamar University is a great University.

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.

I like that there's many people from all over the world that goes to Lamar. There's a lot of diversity here. So far my professors are really good. There's not much to complain about when it comes to the professors. What I would like to see change is getting more involvement with the students. It doesn't seem like many people are involved in other activities besides going to school and going home or back to their dorms.
