3 College Junior

Athletics: Our teams are not the best, but they are certainly acceptable. Kardatzke Wellness Center is a fantastic facility though. The Colts hold their training camp there in the summer months. The only issue is the strain it puts on campus security.

Off-Campus Housing: Next year I will be looking for off-campus housing. At this time, I will still be living in the on-campus apartments in the fall. What I know of Anderson off-campus housing is that it is not very close to the university itself. It is also fairly expensive.

3 College Junior

Majors: I am a double major in Music Business and Writing. I love my majors because they allow me to work in both fields that I am most passionate about. As a music business student, I am required to attend two conferences and take part in an internship while at AU. Via the writing program, I am able to study nonfiction, which is the field I would like to work in most for my writing. I enjoy being able to tell true stories.

Majors: I will have an internship. I am currently speaking with the Cabaret at the Colombia Club in Indianapolis. I hope to secure a position for next summer as planning and marketing help.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: At AU, we have social clubs instead of Greek Life. The social clubs have stigmas with them, yet these are often overlooked. Many people have friends from multiple clubs. There isn't really much of a drinking scene from these groups. At least, not that I'm aware of. Although, I'm not a member of any social clubs. I find nothing wrong with them. I simply do not have the time. I do have friends who believe that members of these groups are rude and snobbish, but I really don't believe that to be the case myself.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: There are a lot of mixed feelings on campus about Open House hours, alcohol, smoking, etc. The fact of the matter is that students, if they desire to do any of these things, will find a way to do them. There is not really a way to avoid it. No matter how many rules they apply, the students will still drink and smoke and have sex if they want to. All students do not participate in these activities, but there is not really the pressure to do it or not do it.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The nurse on campus is wonderful. She is incredibly helpful and always checks up on students who visit her office. She takes her job to heart and only has the best in mind for the students.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Anderson is a town in the process of revitalizing its downtown area. The City Council is trying very hard to bring in businesses that students and families both will enjoy. It takes time for these things to come though. Anderson is only about a half hour away from Indianapolis, which is fantastic. There is so much to do in Indy!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Being at AU has been a huge blessing. I have met my best friends here. They were with me when my dad's cancer returned and when I lost loved ones. They have been the reason that AU has made a difference in my life. It's not all roses of course, but my friendship with them has encouraged me to continue to pursue my goals and dreams. Because I attend AU, I have been challenged to study abroad. In the Spring, I will be in Ireland to study music and writing. (I'm a double major.)

4 College Junior

Facilities: Anderson University is great at pulling together during tough times. We rally support for our students. The Christian center of this school definitely contributes to that. People rely on each other. I recognize that this is done at other universities as well, but at AU the approach is slightly different. People reach out. It's incredibly evident and very uplifting.

3 College Junior

Facilities: CAB tries their absolute best to offer exciting events for students to participate in as there isn't a whole lot in Anderson itself. At the beginning of the year, they have a huge movie night and orientation/move-in weekend is definitely interesting. Cook-outs in the Valley encourage new friendships, and there is definitely a sense of camaraderie.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: It's mostly fast food in the area, which is understandable. Yet, there are many students who wish that Anderson had gluten-free friendly shops as well as a vegetarian or vegan option.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: I have a lot friends here. In fact, my two best friends are probably closer to me than those I had in high school. There is a slight push to simply attend for an MRS degree. This fact is extremely obnoxious. I recognize full well that some women believe that is the purpose of attending university, but it certainly is not how I see it. There is more to earning an education than finding "the one."

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: It's definitely not the best and only one apartment complex enables you to get your own room, but you get your own kitchen and living room and cable so it's not bad!

4 College Junior

Majors: I love the business program. I've made so many connections and I've only finished my first year!

5 College Junior

Majors: It's super easy to get in. There isn't much that you need to do. The application is super easy as well!

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I wouldn't say that housing is great or bad. You definitely get a great sense of community, but I would rather live off campus!

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The health office is on the other side of campus but I can get there if I need to.

Weather: It's a hassle to walk in the rain or the snow, but the scene is great and on a good day, it's a pleasure to walk to classes and such.

Campus Strictness: The campus provides many ways to live on our own, but there are rules and things to obey by when here.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are many houses off campus but there is some what of a drive to get there.
