Clubs & Organizations

We believe students should have opportunities to learn and grow inside and outside the classroom. In addition to meeting new people and having fun, getting involved in one of our more than 60 student clubs and organizations is a great way to develop and sharpen valuable career skills, including teamwork, time management and organization.

Lander Spirit Program

The award-winning Bearcat Cheerleaders, Dance Team and Mascot energize audiences and make Lander games and events fun and exciting. The teams also participate in several competitions throughout the season.

Greek Life

Greek organizations provide students the chance to meet others who share similar academic and extracurricular interests. Many groups place an emphasis on service to the campus and community, and members enjoy making an impact by volunteering their time and efforts to help others.

Academic & Honor Societies

Staying focused on academic pursuits can mean more than just good grades in the classroom. Joining an academic or honor society can help students meet others within their majors, as well as make important connections with experts in their fields of study.

Service Organizations

Whether you are helping collect canned goods for the local food bank, organizing a clean-up day for area neighborhoods, working with schoolchildren as a tutor, or just volunteering your time to improve the community, getting involved in one of Lander’s service groups can help you broaden your college experience while making a difference for others. 

Clubs & Interest Groups

There are plenty of opportunities for you to connect with others on common ground, and topics range from anime, philosophy and chess, to religion, bass fishing and dance.  

Performance Ensembles

Lander’s fine arts and performance groups give students a chance to shine in the spotlight through participation in a variety of musical and choral ensembles. 

Lander Equestrian Team

Lander’s Equestrian program offers competitive opportunities in both English and Western disciplines, and is open to all students regardless of major or horsemanship experience. The team competes in IHSA-sanctioned events within Zone 5 Region 3. An equestrian club is also offered for students who want to participate but do not have as much time to commit to the program.

Lander Presidential Ambassadors

As the face of Lander University, the Presidential Ambassadors are often the first people one meets when visiting the school. Ambassadors give tours to prospective students, welcome visitors who are attending performances, and work in the Office of Admissions.
