Lander University Reviews
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.
Lander University is a great school! The people are polite enough and the professors really do care about your wellbeing and health (my lit professor asks me every day how I am). The only downside is if you're a freshman (or any class) and you don't have a car, the weekends are miserable! Nothing is open before 10 am really and everyone else goes home.
My first year was difficult, because I had to essentially start over socially, but the students here are varied and friendly. The Honors Program is excellent, and they truly made me feel like knowledge, and acquiring that knowledge, were important parts of life. The festivities at Lander are always enjoyable, and the campus' usage of FALS events (Fine Arts and Lectureship Series) gives me the added motivation to get out of my room and go do something fun and meaningful with my friends. More accurately, they're how I tended to make friends. The events can range from concerts and hot chocolate outside in the plaza to a movie presentation in the auditorium to a voice actor's presentation about why a student might want to consider becoming a voice actor. I've thoroughly enjoyed myself at this university so far, and I'm happy to be returning here next semester.
