Building Connections and Growth

"The most unique thing about my department is how they genuinely care about us and ensure that we know that. They often host events like, "Lunch with the Department" to help us get to know our fellow classmates and faculty. It's nice to know that they want to build a relationship with us.

Lamar provides so many opportunities for academic success. On top of that, there are ways for you to build community relations through fun and engaging events on campus."
