New Student Orientation

Orientation Leaders 2015

Welcome to Cardinal Nation!

We're so excited that you have chosen to start your journey at Lamar University. As you enter a new academic environment, you may experience feelings ranging from apprehension to excitement, and New Student Orientation is here to help you succeed in your transition.

New Student Orientation is a wonderful opportunity to have your questions answered and start navigating the logistics associated with starting college or transferring from one school to another. It's also a great way to make friends, start building your on-campus community, and have FUN!

Our Orientation Leaders will guide you through an interactive introduction to departments, resources, and opportunities for involvement, which will allow you to customize your own unique college experience.

Lamar University offers Orientation for all incoming freshmen and transfer students. Freshman students are required to attend an Orientation session in order to receive their confirmed Fall 2017 class schedule, which will be confirmed at the end of Orientation.
