    I think it is a wonderful place to start your career off in such a short amount of time. Tuition is cheap and affordable. A lot of students I know have graduated and is working on jobs based on their degree.

    University police is very diligent to canvas the parking areas all of the time, if there is no visible parking tag you are ticketed, and license plates are ran on all students.

    concession area could be better, all vending machines no real food.

    Campus Safety

    There are emergency blue light phones stationed around the campus.

    Greek Life

    I can't say I have much knowledge on Greek life, but I know Phi Theta Kappa (the Honor Society for two-year technical schools) exists on campus.

    Great for these types of students

    LIT is great for students who know what they want to do. If you;re itching to start your career sooner than 4 to 8 years, this is the place for you.

    What to do for fun

    LIT does not have many fun amenities in itself, but there are tables and chairs outside in the shade, and students have access to the Lamar cafateria, gym, and bookstore!

    Food and Dining

    The cafeteria is cleverly and affectionately called MegaBites.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms at LIT.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you want to learn a technical skill and want to get done with college quick to start your career, I suggest a school like Lamar Institute of Technology.

    In three sentences

    Lamar Institute of Technology is a great two-year technical school! The professors are very intentional and helpful. The classes are smaller and more personal than your typical four-year university, and it conveniently shares some amenities with Lamar University, which is just across the street!
