Student Activities

Lander University is a vibrant campus where students can make new friends and create memories that will last a lifetime. The Student Activities Office provides diverse and entertaining programming for the entire student body, and students play a major role in selecting the comedians, movies, games and musicians that will be presented on campus.

Lander Homecoming

School spirit reigns supreme during this traditional favorite. Homecoming Week is a collaboration between Student Activities, Alumni Affairs and Athletics, and events feature everything from banner and talent competitions, to the annual soapbox derby race. Sporting events and tailgating round out the weeklong celebration.


A part of Welcome Week, CommUniversity connects students with local businesses in a day-long informational fair on campus. Designed to showcase all that Greenwood has to offer, students are able to pick up coupons and samples, and even learn about internship or employment opportunities in the area.

Lander Parents Day

With an atmosphere similar to a fall festival, Family Day brings parents, siblings and friends together with current students, faculty and staff for an enjoyable day of food, entertainment, games and tours.
