Student Profile:
Tyler Doiron
Engineering major finds springboard to LU through TALH
Image Lamar University Student Tyler Doiron 

When Tyler Doiron enrolled at Lamar University through the Texas Academy of Leadership in the Humanities (TALH) program, she knew it would be a unique experience.

“This program was very enriching,” Doiron said. “I would definitely recommend it to students who are looking for a fulfilling experience.” 

Now Doiron has completed the TALH program and is a full-time college student at Lamar with a double major in electrical engineering and mathematics. “I chose to stay at Lamar University for so many reasons,” she said. “Lamar is just a wonderful school. The teachers and programs are great, especially within the College of Engineering. And the classes are smaller. You often have multiple courses with the same people for several semesters. This creates a close-knit group of acquaintances and friends.” Read more.
