Lander's main admissions brochure.
Dr. Daniel Ball President, Lander University At Lander University we believe that the college experience should be an adventure. We see Lander as a place of energy and ideas, a place where, in the morning, you can talk to a professor about global warming and, in the afternoon, you can compare stories on cars, sports and politics with students from Brazil, China, Germany or Sweden. This is Lander. This is a world of possibilities. Imagine yourself at Lander � strolling down brick walk ways worn smooth by time, passing by historic ivy-covered buildings, resting in the shadows of mighty oaks and surrounded by the friendly, warm voices of fellow students. You are at the very heart of Lander University and at the soul of what makes Lander perfect for you. While students are attracted to Lander for many reasons � its rich heritage, academic excellence, personal touch, athletic accomplishments � the underlying purpose of the university is to prepare you for a meaningful life and career. With about 3,000 students, Lander's small class sizes and student-teacher ratio allow for one-on-one attention from experienced faculty who know our students aren't just a number. Rather, they see our students as the teachers, lawyers, doctors, entertainers, business executives and community leaders of tomorrow. Join our students as they explore Greece on a Fine Arts Study Tour or carry out research in Green wood's internationally renowned Genetic Center. Attend a concert by England's Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra or take in a Lander Bearcats basketball game. A degree from Lander opens the door to a world of possibilities, and we have a space reserved for you! This is Lander. Now discover your Lander. We offer you opportunities to grow. Perhaps you'll do research on the water quality of one of our area lakes. Maybe you'll earn a coveted internship at Disney World or take a trip to England to study global markets. You might volunteer with Habitat for Humanity or help your club collect canned goods for the local food bank. And just maybe, you'll help entertain your fellow students during Lander skit night or score the winning goal in a soccer game. I look forward to welcoming you into the Lander family and sharing with you all that Lander has to offer. 1
