4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Anderson has several opportunities to get involved, such as churches, local organizations, and schools. The city is very focused on rebuilding the community and getting everyone involved. There are also a lot of popular mom-and-pop shops (mainly restaurants) that are great to check out on the weekends. The only (very minor) problem is that a lot of off-campus things are on the other side of the highway or downtown, so it is hard to travel by foot or bike.

2 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Even after you are 21 you are not allowed to drink alcohol at home, off campus, or with your family. They expect you to not have wine at your wedding and if you get caught you could be put on probation or asked to leave.

3 College Senior

Weather: Winter Sucks – We don't have a shuttle except late at night so trudging through the snow is very harsh at times!

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: No Real Interaction – There is a 3-1 girl to guy ratio and the women that come here seem very keen on snatching the single fellows up fast! This makes for a more competitive relationship on your dorm floors. Mostly, though, the people here are very sheltered and seem stunted in their emotional growth.

4 College Senior

Facilities: Because of the small classes, professors give great attention to their students and seem genuinely intrigued by their students' academic and outside lives. The campus is so small that one can get to class anywhere in 10 minutes- which is definitely a perk.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Pros and Cons – Unfortunately, the school is in its own bubble. It is surrounded by an economically depressed town and there is not much community involvement on either side. The safety of the campus is beefy to keep strangers out. Although the community does not have a problem with Anderson, there is not much interaction between the two.

3 College Senior

Athletics: The school has a decent athletic program considering its a small Christian college. The football team hasn't had a lot of of success, however we do have an AstroTurf(or something similar) field. It is kept in good condition. In fact, the Indianapolis Colts use it for training camp during the summer. There is also decent support from students towards the team. Our athletic facility, the KWC is pretty new and in excellent condition. It is frequently used by both athletes and students. A special olympics event is held there every year.

While, the AU football team isn't very successful, some other teams have down well. For example, the men and women's basketball teams, the baseball team, the women's softball team, and rugby to name a few. The school also has intermural sports for students that aren't athletes.

3 College Senior

Computers: Tech Stuff – There a quite a few open computers on campus. You can find usable computers in just about every building. A lot of times labs will be reserved by classes, however there is usually a computer you can use somewhere. The main problem with the universities system, is that the internet is oftentimes slow and difficult to access. Despite the connectivity to the dorms and apartments, it is oftentimes so frustratingly slow that it is unusable. And while there is technically wireless internet on campus it doesn't always work depending on your location.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: The financial aid counselors are extremely helpful. They also give away a decent amount of aid for SAT scores, and even athletics(although its nots labeled as such). On the downside, the school is crazy expensive(over $30,000 dollars a year). So theres a good chance you'll graduate with some debt.

3 College Senior

Transportation: There really isn't any need for transportation at AU, its a small campus. They do have school buses that will take you to your dorms or even the local donut shop during the colder months. Also, anyone can have a car as long as you pay to register it. Most students take advantage of this so you can get to most places in town carpooling with a friend. And since the town isn't terribly big, if your into biking its pretty easy to get around too. The one major downside is that their can be some rather asinine parking rules. Like living off campus and getting a parking ticket because you didn't register your car and get a parking pass because you didn't know that the school 'owns' that road.

Nightlife: Night Life – Just about anything you want and Indy is close at hand too

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Not Really Totally Greek – Andeson University is a Christian University so we have social clubs which weakly resemble greek life

3 College Junior

Weather: It si a good mix of the seasons. It has extremes but is awesome

4 College Junior

Athletics: More Than Enough – There are more than enough ways to get involved in athletics on campus. AU has a good work building too.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Everyone is pretty nice, Christian atmosphere mainly. Anderson is big on music always a concert every week and pretty much everyone is involved in something.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Safe Over All – Anderson University police to a good job at making sure campus is safe. I have never been worried about my safety.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Our school is not a huge college therefore students mostly walk to school. I live off campus and is still not far away.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Great Professor and Internship Availability – I am attending Anderson University with a major of Computer Science and Mathematics. Every other summer and spring break there are great opportunities for internships. Our school professors provide students with availability internship and job position. They do have access to professors in other schools.

3 College Junior

Facilities: AU's Freedom – Perhaps AU's greatest accomplishment is the open-mindedness of the professors. Although the administration is relatively dead-set on their opinions, the faculty are great to work with and get to know.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Fairly Diverse – As a private Christian School, AU is pretty diverse for its small community.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Dining Options – The food is decent, but the availability is quite frustrating as all on-campus dining services are closed by 11:00 PM

3 College Freshman

Facilities: Gain Life Experience – It is really nice to have my professors know and my name my biggest class is a gen psych class and that has 85 people in it but my professor still knows my name and she cares about each one of us. Plus it is also really cool at sports games that one of the guys dorm floor has a drum line made out of old trash cans (they even have a snare drums made out of buckets) Many people go home on the weekend so it makes the dorms quiet.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Guys Are Nice – There is a wide variety of guys there are athletes to musicians and I have yet to meet a mean guy at AU. One thing is though that it seems like AU is the place for girls to get the MRS degree and there is a saying of "ring by spring" so it seems like many of the guys are in serious relationships

1 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It's a Struggling City – Most of the fun/ restaurants are off of scatter field road. Many times it is a treat to go to Rickers (a gas station) to get ices. The town has a lot of crime you can hear a lot of sirens at night. Plus there is also a lot of trains at night. The mall is loosing it's anchor store of Sears. Most of the town is in poverty because many of the factories that had provided jobs for the town so many don't have jobs. Yet since Anderson is 30 minutes from Noblesville and 45 minutes from Indy that gives students things to do on the weekends.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I Feel Safe – I have never experienced any problems with security. I also feel very safe walking back alone to my dorm after my night class.
