I love AU! It has a great community of students and faculty. All the professors want to help all their students succeed! I absolutely love being a part of this school. They have many different majors and minors, and if they don't offer what you want, they will help you find a way to get there! All of the faculty members are so motivated to help their students, and you can tell they all love what they do. The athletics programs are pretty great too! The coaches are invested in their athletes and want to help them achieve their best!

I've been at Anderson for two years now and I love it. Everyone on campus is friendly and willing to help out with anything you need. The cost to go to AU can seem overwhelming but it's worth the extra money. The Campus Activities Board, or CAB, put on many different events each weekend that allow the students to get involved and get to know each other. Classroom sizes are small enough to where personal attention from the professors is possible and they are all more than willing to help out if you need anything!

The food can be skeptical at times. My favorite place is Create where they offer a variety of different wraps, toasted or cold, and soup usually. They also do smoothies, serve breakfast, and have other small snacks such as donuts, vegetables, and fruit. The dining workers are so nice and always great you with a smile! I recommend that you try to use your meals first before your Raven dollars (flex dollars). The Raven dollars are nice to buy small snacks or a smoothie or something on the go.
