School Counselor Luncheons

We hope that all the counselors at your school can join us this year. More details to follow.

Junior Fellows

Each year, Lander asks School Counselors from each high school in South Carolina to nominate outstanding high school juniors for the Junior Fellows award from Lander University.

To be considered for this award, nominees should:

  • rank in the top 20 percent of their junior class, and
  • score a minimum of 25 on the ACT, or 1200 on the SAT or PSAT, and
  • have at least a 3.5 grade point average, and

School Counselors will need to complete the Junior Fellows Nomination Form by March 31.

Group Tours

Typically, we welcome groups of all sizes for a visit tailored to your request. This year has proven to be different for all of us. Currently, we are only able to accommodate very small groups.

If you would like to speak to our Group Tour Coordinator, please call us at 864-388-8087 or email

On The Road

Lander University takes pride in our effort to visit every high school in the state of South Carolina, as well as many out-of-state, at some point each school year. Each area is assigned an Admissions Counselor who travels there exclusively so that personal connections can be made.
