I love Lander University so far. I am a freshman, so this is my first year. I feel very safe on campus but I still tell people where I am going. There a little police polls around campus, so if we ever feel unsafe we can just hit the button and a police will be on there way. I love the class sizes. It gives everyone a chance to voice their opinion. The teachers help out a lot. They are available during class hours and they also have convenient office hours. They have amazing food and if you don't like what the café is serving, they have many other options. The campus is small, so the walk isn't that bad.
I love Lander! It is in a great location (just a few minutes walk from Uptown which is a great place to explore) and easy access to the Shoppes @ Greenwood (where all the main shopping is). There are lots of fast food restaurants, as well as great local places to eat. The professors are always available to help students and genuinely want to get to know and help their students. The faculty and administrative staff are always so helpful.
I have enjoyed the memories I’ve made on this campus. However, it is rough at times currently because of COVID, as well as just trying not to get in the sophomore slump. It’s a decently priced tuition for what your provided compared to other schools. I’d say if you want a small-medium school and looking into nursing, teaching, or business to definitely check the campus out for yourself. Good Luck!
The professors are great here and the students are nice. The food is better than your typical high school menu. Also, the restaurant on campus is awesome. However, there's nothing to do. The location of the school is terrible because after a while you get bored of the small city.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Lander University is 61%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I would tell myself to never give up and finish your work. You will love college but get the most out of high school as much as you can because you cant go back. No excuses, Live for today not for tommorow.
Nothing, it's boring and VERY OVERPRICED!!!
The location. There is really nothing to do during free time.
The type of person who shouldn't attend Lander University would be someone who isn't technologically savvy, or someone who isn't aware of how big of factors the internet and computers play in school. Lander uses a web system called Blackboard, which allows students to give teachers their completed assignments through a system outside of email. Blackboard also helps cut down on the waste of paper, because almost everything for each class (course syllabi, assignment schedules, etc.) is online.
My school is excellent with motivating students to acheive there best acedemically.
I would have to say that once again our school size is what makes us unique from other schools.
I wish I had known that if you live off-campus, you don't meet any new people.
They are pretty cool.
My school is best known for the small campus that allows students to get close to their professors.
The most frustrating thing about Lander is that you have to walk a little far to get to your classes.
Anybody with a positive attitude, likes to have fun, get involved and meet great new people. Many different classes are offered. Classes are kept to a minimum so there is help if it is need. Everybody is known by their name and not a number.
the size of the school and the wonderful teachers.
Currently, the only Greek life is sororities. They can be helpful, but I feel sorry for the males because they have less activities allowed to them.
