What's your favorite thing about Cardinal View? 
My favorite thing about Cardinal View is getting to interact with prospective students and really telling everyone about the resources that we have available here at Lamar University.

What advice do you have to help future Cardinals prepare for life at LU? 
Get to know your professors and build a relationship with them because they truly are here to help you. It makes your workload a little more manageable if you interact with your professors and let them know that you are there.
Anything else you would like to add? 
Cardinal View is truly a lot of fun. I encourage any students planning to attend to make the most out of your day, enjoy yourself and learn as much as you want!
