Ally Tywater

Ally Tywater
Silsbee, Texas

Graduating from Silsbee High School in 2019, Ally is currently a General Studies major, but plans to pursue a career in Physical Therapy with an anticipated graduation date of May, 2023.

After considerable thought on where to attend college, Ally chose Lamar University simply because of the smaller class sizes, the one-on-one attention students get with their professors, and being close to home. She says that “having the accountability from close family and peers to do well in college” and “making her parents proud” is very important to her.

She also loves that the staff and faculty here at LU are extremely approachable and willing to help. Ally owes her current academic success to Reba in STAR Services (who she met at the Academic Success Conference) and says if it “wasn’t for [Reba], I don’t know what I would do.” To help with her academic success, Ally took advantage of the many tutoring resources LU offers such as visiting the LU Tutoring Center, the Writing Center, and the Math Shop - while finishing her first semester, Fall 2019, on the Dean’s List.
