  • Aug-29-2016 I am researching this school and have not visited the campus

    My plans were always to attend Ohio State University simply because my cousin attended there, but my sophomore year in high school we did a project on colleges research and I chose Lamar University as one. I did my research and I loved it. Just by words I feel like this just might be the school of my dreams. I love how it's also close to home but also have somewhat far.

    Lamar University really gives tips and tricks to help you with your experience. At the beginning of each semester there's a fun Week of Welcome filled with free food, games, and activities to do. Although it's a smaller campus, there's enough of a university feel to make the college experience nice.

    Lamar is a good university with good professors and a good work ethic. The dorms and activities are up to or over par, and the campus is pretty. There are amazing people and annoying people, but you just have to try and be friendly and it really won't matter :).

    I really like Lamar's atmosphere. It's very relaxed but still upbeat. This is a good school for pre med students, like myself.

    Lamar is a small enough college to where are students can enjoy the company of one another and form long lasting relationships but big enough so that one can explore themselves. Lamar has a very safe environment since the campus is not too large.

    The campus is well maintained, and fairly easy to navigate and find your way around. The campus offers a variety of food choices from chicken and fries to nachos and pizza. There are various locations to eat and relax. The campus offers an EXCELLENT gym facility for the students and organized classes for Zumba, yoga and others.

    A lot more fun than I expected and I feel its worth the low comparative tuition. I didn't know when I first applied but apparently Lamar University has one of the top nursing programs for a tuition of less than 5000$ per year I feel that is actually a steal when you look at other top medical schools. I also love how friendly and helpful all staff workers are, even if I've done something that I feel will frustrate or upset people such as me spilling a drink and requesting something to clean it myself the janitor told me no and did their self.
