4 College Senior

Computers: We have computers in the library, a computer lab next to the coffee shop, and computers in Watkins building. Each student has up to 500 prints a year; if you go over, then you have to pay out of pocket. Most students don't go over their print limit though. Its not a necessity to have a computer, but I think it is much easier and convenient.

Campus Strictness: I came from a Christian background, so the rules here don't really bother me. Anderson is a dry campus, and we have visitation hours for boys and girls to hang out in each other's dorms, teachers are pretty strict on the honor code. I have never actually encountered someone cheating in one of my classes, though.

Majors: I am a psychology major. When I entered the program there wasn't any type of requirements, but now you have to apply to become a psyc major. The application includes an essay and a certain GPAā€¦maybe a few other things that I cannot think of right off hand. The psychology department is difficult!

3 College Senior

Majors: Overall, I would describe the psychology department as challenging. I enjoy most of the classes because I am interested in child development and educational psychology, but I have to work really hard to get good grades. Other departments are not as difficult as psyc.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: Definitely apply for scholarships within Anderson and outside scholarships. Anderson gives A LOT of inside scholarships.

3 College Senior

Weather: South Carolina's weather is so odd, but I love it. Last week we had three days of light snow and ice. We were out of class 1 and a half days, commuters were out an extra half day. But then this week, its 65 degrees outside and its February. I love it though. Definitely bring warm and cool clothes for each season. You never know when you're gonna get a bipolar day.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Campus Safety is good about sending out weather reports (during snow storms or thunderstorms) and warnings about suspicious people or events on campus.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love Anderson. I have met some of my best friends here. The people here are so nice and genuine.

Drug Safety: If there is drug activity going on at school, students do a good job of hiding it. Everyone who goes to Anderson doesn't seem to have drugs as a priority.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: The town of Anderson is quaint. There is plenty to do here between eating, seeing a movie, going downtown, getting coffee, etc. If you can't find what you're looking for in Anderson you can probably find it in Clemson or Greenville.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have wanted to go to AU since I was in 7th grade. This campus has lived up to my expectations and more.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: We do not have greek life on our campus. This seems to keep our community bonded together better than some of the schools that have greek life.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid provided by the university is reasonable, and very helpful.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Nothing major to brag about, but nothing super awesome. Pretty expensive.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Special Education is a new major, so the workload is expected of that of an education major. The program is amazing, and very feasible when it comes to workload.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: There are plenty of amazing majors and opportunities offered by the university. I know freshman who already have internships at local churches and businesses, as well as placements for education majors.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I love the Education department. Dr. Locy and staff are genuinely willing to help you with anything you need. The auditions are nerve-racking, but you are definitely prepared to take them on head first. All of the staff is amazing.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Because we are in the South, when we have snow it shuts down campus, but generally the weather is very forgiving, and nice on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Anderson is a very friendly community. It is definitely a college town, so everyone has some relation to the university, and is very supportive of our school and students.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Our health services is amazing. Deb and Sarah do a phenomenal job at taking care of the students when they need them. The ladies are so friendly, and constantly check up on you after you come see them. Campus safety is awesome on campus. They helped me jump my car last year when it wouldn't start, and are always helpful with safety reminders when there is an event going on around us.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: The labs are great, and easy to use, all you need to do is enter your student ID if you want to print items and they take them off of your free copies.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Our campus shuttle is new, but very effective for students. If they have classes at the athletic campus (old fairgrounds) or if they are a freshman who has to park over there, the shuttle makes things much more feasible for them.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of diverse off-campus dining facilities around campus. Either on Greenville street (81) or Clemson Boulevard.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There are huge limits and restrictions to drug use on campus. You sign an honor code when you attend and you are expected to uphold the respectability of this university.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: A lot of the main female dorms are old because of the historical appeal of the campus. The dorms are not bad at all.
