Life at Lander University doesn't rest solely within the classroom walls. It’s what you do outside of class – experiencing the natural wonders of our state on campus rec trips, attending a concert or comedy event, making friends in a student organization, and enjoying dinner with suitemates in the dining hall – that makes the ordinary college experience extraordinary.
