Three National Honor Societies have established chapters at the College – Omicron Delta Epsilon, the international Honor Society in Economics and Business; Alpha Chi, an honor society recognizing general academic excellence, and The American Psychological Society. Seniors are selected for membership to these societies based on outstanding scholastic achievement and service to the school.
At many institutions of higher education it is easy for students to feel lost among the large number of students. Because the Lander College for Men is a small, selective institution for motivated students, it is able to assign each student a mentor from its full-time faculty. The role of the mentor is to develop a personal relationship with the student, provide academic guidance, and help the student secure internships, employment, or acceptance into graduate or professional schools.
