Lander University Reviews
I am a freshman at Lander University and so far I have truly enjoyed my first year experience. I have met new friends and is now on the cheerleading team. It has been fantastic. I would highly recommend this institution to anyone who is looking for a small rural college nestled in the heart of Greenwood, SC. Even the professors are attentive and make you feel as if you can call on them with any concerns. Lander University is a "go" for me and I am grateful that I made this institution my choice to further my education. "Go Bearcats"!
Lander University is an amazing school. LU offer lots of different career and volunteer opportunities. They even host career fairs frequently. They also have many internship opportunities available. In my opinion, the College of Nursing and College of Business programs are the best programs at Lander. Lander also has a variety of different sports and clubs/organizations for the student body. Their organization are involved in the community in many different ways. As for sports, my only complaint would be I wish we had a football and track team. My only other complaint about lander would be that the school needs more diversity in its faculty, staff, and students.
My experience with Lander University has been nothing but positive! I love Lander and would strongly recommend all of my friends to go here! I have made so many friends at Lander and I absolutely love all of my professors. The environment is great. It is one of the most beautiful campuses I have ever toured. All the professors are friendly and helpful. Everyone always seems to be smiling and happy. I absolutely love the library because there are so many options. From single study rooms, group study rooms, the loft area, and even a Starbucks! There are many food options whether you are eating in the cafeteria, Which Wich, or Twisted Taco! Great school!
