I love the campus life here at Lamar. It's not to wild and crazy but it's not boring either. I spend most of my time in the dorms with my teammates playing games and watching youtube because they're so nice and home like.
I think the school has overcome quite a few difficulties in many different aspects such as: the support of the locas, the financial situation, "beautification" of the campus, and the support the the students and faculty. What I like most about the school is its support for the arts. Though I think too much attention goes to areas that are not academic in nature (such as sports and recreation), the arts are still appreciated.
