Everything is clean nice. The atmosphere is like any other well kept university. The athletics are fun to attend and just watch and spend time with friends. The weekends aren't that great just because everyone goes home, so that may be the only downsize Lamar has.

College Life Rating

I prefer to stay within the crowd of my own major. I wish there was a more diverse selection of clubs and organizations, though that (I do not believe) is at the fault of the administration, rather the lack of interest of the students. I also feel as though there should be more security and better lighting. I feel safe during the day, but walking around campus at night, alone, would not be a comfortable feeling. As far as weekend activities and athletics, I think there is a decent array to choose from, though I feel too much emphasis is put on the sports teams, which takes away from other students in other areas who are far surpassing the expectations and standards set upon them.
