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!

I loved my time at Lander! As a home schooled student, the small class sizes made it easy to transition into college. The professors are always accessible and there are various resources on campus to assist you for free. If you're willing to learn, Lander faculty and staff will ensure that you get a quality education without the high price tag. The school of business is AACSB certified and the science faculty is highly recognized in their field. The Art Department has ties to a variety of other opportunities and study abroad is available for all students and is surprisingly inexpensive due to the incredible agreements Lander has arranged.
When I first moved to Lander I was very terrified that I would not make any friends and that the teachers would be strict, however Lander is quite the opposite. My first week was more than amazing! Everyone ( including teachers) were very sweet and easy to approach. I am in love with this school and hope I can continue to go here!
