  • Mr. Babb of Lander goes to Washington

    Lander University student Jeremy Babb has wanted to visit Washington, D.C., but never had occasion to make the trip. Now, he will spend the spring 2010 semester in the nation's capital thanks to his standing as an honor student, and a team effort by members of the Lander faculty, and his fiancée.
