Bearcat Club

The Bearcat Club's purposes are to promote intercollegiate athletics at the University, sponsor the annual athletics banquet and the Athletics Hall of Fame, purchase needed equipment and support construction projects. (Bearcat Club Brochure)

Over 200 student-athletes represent Lander University in intercollegiate competition; and our student-athletes and athletic teams continue to distinguish themselves on the courts, the fields, and in the classrooms. The Bearcat Club is extremely proud of these young men and women and our coaches' accomplishments.

The Bearcat Club has been tremendously successful, since it was organized in December 1995, due to the support of its members. These members are Lander alumni, friends of the University, as well as businesses and industries, and parents and family members of our student-athletes.

Individuals can join the Bearcat Club for $50, while corporate memberships are $100. Gifts in excess of the individual and corporate rates will be used to fund athletic scholarships.
