Welcome to the Cardinal Family! We are excited that you have chosen Lamar University to continue your education. The transition to college can be overwhelming for anyone, so we have gathered important information regarding the university for your convenience. At Lamar University we consider education the path towards creating future opportunities. Whether you are beginning your bachelor's degree, preparing for a career, updating your skills, or pursuing your passions, Lamar University can help you make the most of your future.
Now that you have been accepted, New Student Orientation is one of the first steps to successfully making the transition to college. Students and their families are encouraged to attend orientation to truly acclimate themselves to Lamar University and learn about the variety of programs and services that are offered. Attendees will also have the opportunity to interact with staff, faculty, and students from various departments on campus. The orientation staff, known as Peer Advisors, strive to make sure that students and their families are informed, prepared, and excited new members of the Cardinal family. New Student Orientation is specifically designed for first-time freshmen and students with less than 18 hours (although all students are welcome). For more information on New Student Orientation go to Orientation 101.
Both inside and outside the classroom, Lamar University students find that they are part of a vibrant campus experience that includes cultural, recreational, athletic, and academic opportunities for growth and leadership.
