Lander University Reviews
Overall the campus and staff is awesome! All of my professors were very kind and helpful, they really want you have make good grades. The university itself is just too small and there is little to no "night life", which is why I am transferring. I do recommend Lander, but you have to be honest with yourself if you are okay with going to a small university in a small area.
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"!
Love the small town vibe and people. Can get a little claustrophobic knowing everyone by your second semester. Hate the cafe but I have seen much worse. Brookside is an experience, I would recommend off campus! Teachers have always been great in my experience. Party life is surprisingly good #buffs
