    compared to other universities, the price of tuition is more reasonable than most. also, you pay for the rec, which is the exercising center, the library and all of its functions, parking, and a ton of other campus perks. i compared my tuition to my friend's the other day who attends baylor, and mine was way cheaper for great classes.

    At the end of everything, you will still get your degree for a semi reasonable price. They are raising tuition in fall 2016, so that won't be fun.

    Lamar is fairly cheap compared to other universities, but you still have to pay about $4k just to be a student. Meaning, you have to pay about $4k PLUS whatever your classes cost. You are required to buy a meal plan if you live on campus, which is kinda stupid but not too horrible. The quality of the classes is very good so I think you really get your moneys worth (though colleges all over should really lower their prices. They've risen way faster than it would be to compensate for inflation which is ridiculous but I'm just ranting now).
