When scrolling through facebook yesterday, I saw an article about the university where I graduated continue to pop up in my timeline. I clicked on it and was delighted to see that Lander University was ranked #4 in the Top Public Regional Colleges- South by U.S. News & World Report.
Obviously, I was elated to see such great news about my alma mater! It's no secret that I wasn't a huge fan of school, I've discussed it probably more than a dozen times here on the blog. Although I wasn't doing cartwheels to go to school everyday, I truly don't believe that I could have picked a better school to attend.
My years at Lander are ones that I cherish and I look on memories very fondly. It's funny, Josh and I reminisce about Lander all the time. And I think he may actually miss it just as much, or more than I do! We were just talking the other day about planning a trip to visit soon.
The time I spent at Lander taught me so much about myself and I grew leaps and bounds as a person while I was there. I'm so thankful for the organizations I was able to be a part of, teams I was on, and the professors and classmates that I got to spend my days with. Some of my very best friendships blossomed at Lander, and for that I am so grateful.
Lander has made major changes in preparation for this school year. There is a new president, a gorgeous new residence hall, a new fountain, and a Starbucks. The only thing I'm upset about is that I am missing out on these great new additions :)
In all seriousness, Lander is a fantastic school, as shown by their top 5 ranking, and I recommend it all the time to high school seniors. I am definitely a proud bearcat and proud Lander University alumni.
When picking out pictures for this post, I had to restrain myself, because I could have easily posted a ton! Sometimes I forget just how much I did and how much I was able to experience while I was in school. Looking back on photos takes me right back to the time and place where they were taken.
