4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall I have loved my overall experience at Lamar. Since Lamar has easy coursework, I have been able to bump up my GPA and have been able to have the opportunity to finally transfer to my dream school.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Lamar is the best school when it comes to Engineering and Nursing. But pretty average when it comes to Business.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Due to the fact South Park is right next door to campus. It plays a concerning rule when it comes to safety on campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I haven't lived in the dorms. But what my friends have told me is that it's expensive, and if you live on campus as a incoming freshman you have to buy a meal plan which gets expensive as well. The inside of the dorms are pretty nice, I just would never live in them due to the space and the cost.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: For it being a small campus, Lamar's Greek Life is pretty noticeable. And definitely add to the college social scene.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Lamar is in the Southland Conference which is D1 FCS Football, Lamar has a pretty decent football team and athletics department.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Lamar is a great school to start an education at. The low tuition and the community I have interacted with make Lamar a good university in my book. The only thing that I don't like is the fact that a crip neighborhood is right next door to campus which is a big threat to campus security. But the Lamar PD do their best and I personally never felt endangered on campus. I do advise anyone that is about to start school here, be VERY careful with what you do in South Park. Always keep your doors in your car locked and don't do anything to cause a criminal to want to harass you.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Love the small class size. Professors like to help students succeed when the student is showing an effort.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: High level of security is appealing however the area is not the safest. When there is crime on campus the university police send out warning regarding the incident and to be one the look out. Safety phones throughout campus.

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: The dorms are set up to where you have your own room and you share a living space and a bathroom with one other roommate. It's nice to have the privacy of your own room and not having to worry about a community bathroom. It's easy to walk to class and laundry is free.

2 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is small and not a huge part of the school. They do put together events that can be fun or appeal but for the most part Greeks do not stand out.

3 College Senior

Athletics: The facilities are top notch mostly. However there isn't as much student support as I would think there should be. School spirit is low and team performance varies.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love how small the classes are the further I get into my major. Small class sizes allow a more personal learning experience and the opportunity to build a relationship with professors instead of just being a face in an auditorium full of people. I feel that most professors enjoy what they do and are willing to help students when needed. Only negative about the school is the city it is in. There is not much to do.

5 College Sophomore

5 College Sophomore

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: They have police polls at the end of almost every street , so it makes you feel safe no matter what time of day it is while walking

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: each person has their own room and they only share the common area (living room) and the bayhroom

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: they all get you involved with campus life

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: College is what you make of it. I made the most of it so I loved it

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I do not live on campus. I take an online course now.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I get a weekly call from my campus adviser to make sure I'm okay.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I take an online course and have no knowledge of on campus Greek life.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I take an online course so I have no perspective on sports.
