“The student body of Lamar University is as deeply diverse as it is impressive. This allows Lamar University to provide an enriching and supportive environment for all of our students, regardless of their background or field of study. Our Ambassadors give Lamar University the opportunity to showcase our diversity and our welcoming and supportive students to the many prospective students who visit our campus.”
