While Lamar State College Port Arthur officials are eager to return to classes as soon as possible, the reality of the aftermath of Hurricane Laura makes it clear that we must give students, faculty and staff the opportunity to more fully recover from this devastating storm.

“With this in mind, Lamar State College Port Arthur administrators have decided to resume classes on Tuesday, September 8, 2020,” Public Information Coordinator Gerry L. Dickert said Friday afternoon.
