Housed in two campus buildings, the College of Science & Mathematics offers state-of-the-art facilities where biology students explore their curiosity about the complex web of organisms that thrive in ecosystems and research the causes of modern diseases and their cures; mathematics and computing students work to unravel mathematical or technological mysteries; and chemistry and environmental students study how molecules and elements interact, as well as explore energy alternatives to protect the environment.

I chose Lander because it offered the emphasis I was seeking, and its chemistry department is strong, with highly-qualified, enlightening professors who are passionate in what they do and excited to teach their students.

Lander’s biology faculty have developed a great curriculum that covers every area that I needed for my entrance exams and provided me an easy way to take all the prerequisite classes that I needed to apply to graduate school.
Lander University senior Rolland Muzeya, of Chinhoyi, Zimbabwe, already knows what he will be doing, after he graduates next May. He will relocate to Atlanta and work as a software engineer for BlackRock, the largest asset management company in the world.
Having also been accepted to two other colleges in South Carolina, Lander University wasn’t Elisa Howansky’s first choice. Deciding to major in biology, however, seemed like a no-brainer.
Living 8,000 miles from his family in Harare, Zimbabwe, Nathan Mugande has become immersed in South Carolina’s life and culture as he’s charted his own course of success at Lander University.
