GREENWOOD — As their predcessors have done for the past 20 years the students attending the fall semester at Lander University got an introduction to what the Greenwood Community has to offer during CommUniversity.
In a statement released Friday, Lander University announced that more than 100 businesses, restaurants, agencies, churches and other community organizations from the Greenwood area introduced their products and services to Lander students who recently arrived on campus for the beginning of Fall semester. Representatives invited students to visit their place of establishment, offered samples, and gave away promotional items and discount coupons during the two-hour event. Several provided information about volunteer opportunities while others sought to fill part-time job positions by displaying a ‘now hiring’ sign at their table encouraging students to apply for employment.
