What Students Are Saying

3.83 Average Rating
effective as harvard, but not as hard
Cynthia from Beaumont, TX
I would not say that classes are very difficult for ANY college. It all depends on the students drive. One will excel at any level of education with the right attitude. At Lamar the atmosphere allows for such a drive to influence students to pursue more than they believe they are capable of. The area of the college has nothing to do with ones internal drive for a better future.
Michael from Austin, TX
Some classes are very tough-like organic chemistry. However, these are the classes that push the students to think differently and be studious. Of course, classes like art appreciation, are not very difficult.
Karla from Port Arthur, TX
you must be on yourself in order to stay focus.
Shaundrea from Houston, TX
lamar offers plenty of rigorous courses that are really helpful
Diamond from Houston, TX
There's so many programs to help you pass or get tutored. In the library there's even a writing center to help any papers you have to turn in. Each class has its own difficulty, but the professors make it clear what they expect.
