Lander University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (3)
I attended Lander University as an incoming junior. I had just recently graduated from a small two year school called Spartanburg Methodist College in Spartanburg, SC. When I was looking at other schools to transfer to, I thought about my SMC experience and how I felt it was so important that I received the same opportunity and family oriented environment that I did from my SMC. I couldn't tell you how exactly I found Lander, but when I toured the school I immediately felt the family environment I was looking for. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, they had a way to make you feel at home. Lander Provided me with such an enriching experience, I was a student leader within many organizations and that allowed me to network and build such great relationships with a variety of people just as I did a my prior school. With my academics I was challenged with both failures and successes, but it made me such a better student and person. I believe its vital to gain a well-rounded experience at a school; Lander gave that to me and I will be forever grateful.
The education that I received from Lander University prepared me for the world of work. As a psychology major, I was able to use what I learned to help me to better interact with others. In addition, I was able to apply what I learned in the classroom directly to my job.
It wasn't the best and it wasn't the worst. My professors were great but I thought the culture of the school wasn't as encouraging as I would have liked (everyone seemed content to slack off and there wasn't an atmosphere of encouraging students to aim higher except for a few exceptions). It seemed like there was more focus on the rules and just getting the degree than being excellent, except for my major classes.
