Lander students tour Uptown Greenwood

The incoming freshman class at Lander University had an introduction to campus and to the Greenwood community unlike any other incoming class in Lander’s history. 

Last week, Lander held its first ever “Launch Into Lander” series, a weekend filled with events aimed at engaging and connecting students ahead of the 2019/20 academic year. 

As part of “Launch Into Lander,” students took a special tour of Uptown Greenwood on Friday, August 16, by riding the Lander Line. The shuttle transports students from campus to hot spots around the city, providing the opportunity to explore restaurants and businesses located in Greenwood’s historic Uptown district. Some businesses offered special discounts to students as a way of welcoming them to the community.

“It’s really nice!” said Myles Starke, one of Lander’s incoming freshmen and a member of the wrestling team, who also noted that the Lander Line service provides students who don’t have a car the opportunity to visit Greenwood without “their own set of wheels.”

The “Launch Into Lander” series officially kicked off on Wednesday, August 14, with freshman move-in day, and concluded with a special lake day at Camp Fellowship on Saturday, August 17. Additionally, incoming freshmen attended academic sessions, and several on-campus social gatherings that allowed them to get to know one another and meet members of Lander’s faculty and staff.
