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.
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.
