Lamar University is a comprehensive public institution educating a diverse student body, preparing students for leadership and lifelong learning in a multicultural world, and enhancing the future of Southeast Texas, the state, the nation, and the world through teaching, research and creative activity, and service.
Home to 15,000 students, Lamar University is among the fastest growing Texas colleges and universities and is a member of The Texas State University System. LU offers more than 100 programs of study leading to bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees. The 270-acre campus in Beaumont is about 90 miles east of Houston and about 25 miles west of Louisiana.
Nationally recognized for the quality of its core curriculum and the diversity of its student body, LU stresses academic achievement by emphasizing hands-on learning at all levels, providing ample opportunities for undergraduate research and supporting an excellent Honors Program. The university’s low student-to-faculty ratio and small class sizes allow students to build meaningful relationships with expert faculty who truly care about their success.

Students make an impact through nationally affiliated fraternities and sororities, professional associations, cultural groups, religious clubs and service organizations.
