Parent and Family Programs

Welcome, Cardinal Parents & Families!

The Lamar University Parents Association is here to enhance communication between the University and families of Lamar students. Our purpose is to foster the University partnership with families in providing a quality education experience. If you're a parent or a family member of a LU student (undergraduate or graduate), you're already a member!

There are no forms to sign or dues to pay. We are committed to enhancing your experiences at the University while your son or daughter is a student. Visit our Membership page to join our mailing list.

For more information, call us at 409-880-7775 or email parents@lamar.edu.
