WITH MORE THAN one hundred bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degree programs, Lamar University (LU) is nationally recognized for the quality of its core curriculum, affordability, student body diversity, robust online presence, and low student–faculty ratio of 19:1.
A doctoral research university with five academic colleges, LU offers students the opportunity to study in the Reaud Honors College, across the world through faculty-led study abroad programs, and in co-op work programs that reflect LU’s partnerships with business and industry.
LU is home to the Texas Academy for Leadership in the Humanities, a tuition-free honors program granting high school students the opportunity to complete the final two years of high school while simultaneously earning sixty hours of college credit.
The 300-acre campus has five residence halls and a new 85,000-square-foot science and technology building for interdisciplinary research. The campus also is home to the Center for Innovation, Commercialization, and Entrepreneurship, a conduit for industry and university interaction.
Students enjoy the remodeled Setzer Student Center with its food court and adjacent, redesigned quadrangle. They also participate in hundreds of student organizations, an active Greek community, and intramural sports in a state-of-the-art athletic complex that also supports LU’s football program and fourteen other NCAA Division I men’s and women’s sports.
