What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think lamar is a good campus, it could be better by more parking, places to eat, and more student activities on campus. I live off campus and rarely ever see anything going on there that is fun. I think Lamar's campus has a greater amount of adult students and are boring.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall the campus is very lively. I haven't been on campus much besides for classes because I live off campus, but from what I seen everyone is very active in clubs and sports. It's really nice to see people come together doing what they love. They have lots of activities that students like to participate in.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

At the beginning of my college experience, I was super excited to start being on my own and seeing what Lamar has to offer. I wouldn't be at many events, but if I went I would sometimes have fun; it all depended on what the event was. I was mostly excited to have my own room within the dorm. I had the mindset of a typical excited first generation college student. I even woke up ready for the first day of classes. Now that it is almost the end of fall semester, the excitement I had in August gradually decreased. I am still happy about the university, but in certain terms, I constantly got a bit annoyed. Let's start with housing. There were so many issues specifically at the hall I am currently in. The water would always take forever to turn hot whenever I get ready to take a shower, the electricity sometimes turns off whenever my roommate or I need it, and unexpected hall meetings. I am not throwing the RAs off of the bus, but I feel like we all should know about hall meetings at least a day in advance. Just getting unexpected information in general is not okay. I found out that my couch in the living area had bed bugs, and immediately told the front desk about it. A couple days later, I get a phone call during class that my roommate and I have to leave the dorm room before the afternoon so the exterminators can eliminate the bugs. Of course I was upset because they call me during class, and tell me that I have to move out of my room. With the little time I had, it was no way I can get all my necessities before the exterminators begin their job. Another one is closing the area of the student setzer center. I understand that the set is being remodeled, but all of us attending did not have time to find an alternative route to our classes because the workers just put up the fences in the middle of the week. I honestly believe that they would have been ordered to start fencing during the weekend, when we don't have any classes to go to at a specific time. I know that many of us was late to our classes because of this. Other than the two big problems I mentioned above, I have had an amazing time here at Lamar University. The community is diverse, respectful, and kind of family-oriented. I say "kind-of" in a good way. Many of the events are worth experiencing, the parties are so much better than high school parties, and I plan on staying spring semester.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

So far, I've attended Lamar for a total of eleven weeks. Overall, Lamar University is a great school. The courses are manageable. If you find yourself struggling in a class, then you can visit your professor during his/her office hours, and if for some reason you can't they are willing to be flexible. One of my favorite things is Lamar offers free tutoring services if you find yourself struggling in a class. Food on campus is actually pretty good, and it's an upgrade from high school lunch. The cafeteria offers food that can accommodate just about any type of diet. However, the building that held our favorite dining places is currently being renovated to add a Panda Express and Chick-fil-A, but the University was able to find another way to accommodate our favorite food into food trucks. The last thing is campus life. The dorms are pretty spacious compared to the dorms I've seen at other colleges. You'll have a roommate who you'll share a common space and a bathroom with. The room is already furnished with couches, a table, a microwave, and a fridge. Your room has a pretty big closet, two dresses, a twin bed, a bedside table, and a desk. There are many activities to be involved with on campus. There is almost something to do every day, and there's usually free food involved as well. Lamar can accommodate just about any type of student, which is why their population is very diverse.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Teachers have been great, helpful, and fair! The most difficult aspect I've experienced with this school is their process and systems when trying to speak to someone, you're almost always directed to someone else who might also direct you to someone else. I spent over 13 days trying to get a situation fixed, most staff wasn't helpful and even rude. I did my undergrad and some other post Bach programs and don't remember having to deal with anything like this before to this point so it seems like Lamar has taken more of turn for the worse. I do remember their process being pretty lengthy. You have to go all over the campus to take care of one matter.

The food is great, the rooms in the dorms are good- but maintenance needs to be done and they're rather old. Lamar is located in a bad neighborhood and a bad area of town but there's campus police. There's a ton of activities that go around on campus! We have sports events all the time. It's a great school, I just wish there weren't as many ghetto-don't-actually-care-about-school people.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Lamar is generally very safe, though there are certain areas you should avoid, especially at night. Our food is decent but it's frustrating when the good food is really only served when tours come to campus. The classes are not too large or too small. You do have some auditorium classes in the beginning, but they shrink as you go on. The professors are pretty cool and are generally there when you need to talk with them. Even if they are not in their office, they will usually email you back quickly. Dorm life is pretty good! You and one other person share a dorm room but have separate bedrooms! Just make sure you go do laundry during off hours or else you'll be waiting for a while. I'd recommend going if you're very into the STEM fields. While we have other programs, Lamar focuses more on these majors.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

That the truth behind how different it was going to be from high school to college in regard to studying was completely true. In high school studying wasn't that hard or sometimes not necessary but in college it's completely necessary and at times overwhelming.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

The friendly atmosphere and professors' open door policy makes this school a great learning environment.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If, by some miracle, I could go back in time and give myself advice about college, I would tell myself to relax. I got really stressed out during the process of applying for college and forgot to breathe and allow the memories to sink in.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about this school is the food.
