Why did you decide to go to this school?


To be honest, because I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with my life. I grew up about 15 minutes away, and the school was an affordable choice for someone who wanted an education but wasn't sure what she wanted out of it. I entered Lamar with plans of completing my "basics" and moving on to a bigger, better school in a bigger, better town. However, I chose to STAY at this school for several reasons. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that Lamar inhabited accomplished, intelligent and sophisticated educators in every college at the university, and our small class sizes provided us with immediate access to these extraordinary individuals. My professors, from statistics to children's literature, have challenged me intellectually in subjects I would not have even acknowledged otherwise. In order to succeed at this school, I was forced to open my mind up to things I simply did not care to learn about. My professors forced me to open my mind. And this was what I wanted out of my education.
