I absolutely love Lander so far. I never run out of things to do because there are always so many things going on! The small class sizes are wonderful, and everything is very academically based. I finished my first semester with all As so I couldn't ask for anything better!
Review Your College
Lander University is a great institution academically that has many qualified professors who have a passion to not only teach students but to also see their students pursue their dreams, expand their knowledge and perfect their talents with any given majors. I would love to see more activities throughout the year so the students are not as bored and in their rooms so much. Also the fraternities and sororities are not as involved with the campus as much as they could truly be.
I am a student at Lander University and for me, it is a great school. Lander has friendly staff and students that help students through school. The faculty is friendly also and are willing to help students who are struggling with classes or just to pop in and talk. Also being a resident there are resident assistance that show they care about you and help you in any way that they can. One thing I would like to change about the school is thier variety of meal choices in the cafe. I would like them to have a broader variety to home cook meals.
