Lander Student Media

Students from across campus and in all majors can share their stories with the world by participating in one of Lander’s many media organizations, including LUX, XLR Lander Radio, The Forum online student news magazine, and the annual Lander Film Festival and Short Film Competition. 


The LUX is a media-rich environment where students exchange ideas and collaborate for classes, internships, XLR Lander Radio, The Forum newspaper, LUX TV (formerly WLGTV), and the Lander Film Festival and Short Film Competition. LUX studio and website allows students to create and share relevant and engaging content: television news or magazine shows, promotional videos, short films, photography or multimedia projects, audio projects, and more.

XLR-Lander Radio

XLR Lander University Radio is the award-winning student-run radio station of Lander University. XLR is heard on campus and around the world, playing an eclectic variety of independent music (old and new). XLR educates students, breaks ground in musical programming, and provides cutting-edge cultural coverage through specialty shows 24/7/365.

Lander Film Festival & Student Short Film Competition

Take a seat in the director's chair in Lander's Film Festival and Student Short Film Competition. This annual event is a fantastic opportunity for aspiring filmmakers to try their hands at writing, directing or producing pieces to be professionally critiqued by a panel of judges that has included Hollywood screenwriters. It’s also a great event for those who just enjoy watching films!
