" Lamar provided me with the ability to participate in every opportunity from academics to athletics through the continued support from each member of the faculty.  At Lamar, a student who has the ambition to take challenging courses, walk on any sports field, and/or perform on any stage, can achieve these goals...which ultimately develops a holistic person who can achieve success in college."
