The Division of Student Engagement is here to help facilitate your transition into Lamar University, support your growth in and out of the classroom, and prepare you for personal and professional life after college. As you explore the many offerings at the University, you will find that students are at the center of everything we plan, provide, promote, and promise.

As you live, learn, and grow at Lamar University, we pledge that we will encourage you to embrace opportunities that enrich your academic experience, offer support when you make difficult decisions, challenge you to develop healthy choices regarding behavior and wellness, offer you experiences that foster civic responsibility and cultural engagement, celebrate your individuality, and help you grow as a leader.

We know that college is a life-changing experience. We are committed to making sure that you get the most out of your LU experience.
