“Lamar University has so much to offer top students,” said Maggie Cano, director of recruitment. “This special event will allow them to meet deans, professors and current students and experience first-hand the personal attention that Lamar students enjoy.”

Additionally, Academic Open House will include presentations on generous scholarships and the Honors Program, campus tours, complimentary lunch in the dining hall and complimentary tickets to LU’s 7 p.m. Homecoming football game.
