Lamar University Centennial 1923 - 2003

An important part of Lamar University’s institutional identity is tied to the 1901 Spindletop oil gusher, which set the foundation for South Park Junior College’s creation in 1923.

Much like the Lucas oil gusher in 1901, LU is bursting with opportunity for a wide range of students. Join us in celebrating this moment and the rich history of Lamar University.
