What Students Are Saying

3.83 Average Rating
When you come to college, prepare to work hard every day and give it your best shot. If you don't give it everything you have, you can easily become sidetracked. Do every task to your best ability and never stop trying. Get involved in activites and groups around campus because it gives you a nice break from school sometimes.
Jessica from Anderson, SC
Be sure that you want to attend a college of this size. Although the campus seems small and you don't really get to see the amount of students on campus, this is a relatively good sized school.
Ellaina from Loris, SC
I know this is a long explanation, but bear with me, it is important. The biggest problem students may face in college is funding. Lander offers several scholarships, including academic. Be sure to utilize scholarships and grants whenever possible. Remember to apply for outside scholarships as well. Lander has a low tuition that makes it easy to pay off school entirely on scholarships if you work for them. Lander also makes loan eligibility clear, just remember to analyze your need carefully before accepting offers. The most costly expense at Lander is housing; consider living off campus if your expected cost is too high. There are a lot of nearby apartments to Lander that offer a variety of amenities.
On a side note, Lander requires a certain number of FALS (Fine Arts and Lectureship) credits for students. This means attending events at the school that they deem FALS approved. Many students can finish this requirement within the first two years, so do not stress about it.
Jean from Greenville, SC
Get involved on campus because if you dont you may decide to transfer and miss out on the great opportunities Lander has to offer.
Tanisha from Columbia, SC
Make sure you're ready for a small town with nothing to do but attend classes and study! Jobs for college students are limited in a small town so be aware of that too.
Britt from Asheville, NC
Listen to your advisors, and try to get your math class before the nursing majors do.
Ashley from Starr, SC
This school is best suited to those that appreciate the finer things, the slow going but intense experiences. It is a great place to get your start in becoming an educated adult in this world. You're guarenteed to make friends, share memories, and learn tools of the trades that will help you through life.
Kelsey from Ladson, SC
Some tips that I would give to a prospective student would be to come prepared for class. It is always helpful to have your books and to always pay attention. Also it is essential to plan your class schedule that best works for you.
Katelyn from Greenwood, SC
Go to class. Do all your assigned work. Also study for exams and do not wait to the last second to try in cram all the information in a short amount of time.
