    Lamar has Week of Welcome (WoW) which has a lot of activities for a week to two weeks. They had a color run last WoW and I walked it. It was a lot of fun! They have movies playing throughout the semester so make sure to catch at least one. There's usually free food for the first few people but you have to get there about an hour before to be one of the recipients. We have homecoming week during which there is a lot of free food, activities, and sometimes T-shirts! You should really try to go to at least one homegame and it doesn't even have to be football, though I do suggest it. We have the Spindletop museum just barely off campus. You could really bike over there and be just fine. It looks like a little old western town that tells the history of how Beaumont came to be. DEFINITELY go to that! :)

    Beaumont is listed as the saddest place in America, you really need to have a car so that you can get out of the area on weekends. Basically everyone goes home on the weekends because it really is nothing to do in the area so you do not want to be stuck on campus alone.

    There are varieties of social clubs as well as activities to participate in. We have a driving range if you want to practice the swing. Lamar also has a recreational center which offers multiple rooms with exercise equipment. The rec center also has activities such as rock climbing, swimming, racquetball, and pool. Occasionally in the Setzer Center, there will be activities.

    On campus there are activities for students in the Setzer center. There is not much to do on campus; it is better to drive into the city and enjoy the malls or the movies.
