This is Lander. This is Campus Life. www.lander.edu/goto/housing Did you know? n n n Megan McCartney Early Childhood Education Graduate, ’12 and former Resident Assistant n “Even though Lander is a small university, it feels like a big family on campus, with personable professors, helpful staff and outgoing, fun students. Lander was definitely the best choice for me because I was able to get involved in so many great organizations, including the Baptist Collegiate Ministry, Presidential Ambassadors and Zeta Tau Alpha. I’ve had the honor of serving as Homecoming Queen, and I loved my work in the Admissions Office, where I enjoyed giving tours and seeing new faces! But being a resident assistant was truly the best thing I did at Lander. I loved being able to help others, especially freshmen as they adjust to college life.” n Your Home Away From Home Campus living is more than just spending time in your room to study or rest. When you live in the heart of campus, you are in the center of all the action – and you’re an integral part of the Lander community! You’ll have the opportunity to make lifelong friends while you share laughs during intramural games, participate in a service project with your fraternity or sorority, or take in a campus concert with your suitemates. With the campus dining hall, library and classrooms only a few steps away, you’ll be right where you want to be! Who can help me adjust to residence hall life? Learning to live with other students is a rewarding experience, and many roommates and suitemates become close friends during their time together. Your Resident Assistant (RA) can help you adjust to your new living environment and provide further assistance with any questions you might have. 28 Free cable and Internet access for computers are available in all residence halls. All residence halls are air-conditioned. Each student living on campus is assigned a post office box for mail delivery. As part of Lander’s Healthy Campus initiative, the university is a tobaccofree campus. All students may bring their cars to campus. Parking permits can be purchased from University Police.
