I am currently in my second year at AU and I still love it just as much as I did from the very first day. Being at AU has changed my life spiritually, mentally, and has shaped me as a person. Being in college is hard enough but fortunately here at AU, there is a christian environment that is loving toward all students. I believe I go to a college that is focused on the well-being of their students and wants to see them strive not just academically, but spiritually as well. I cannot wait to see what my future here at AU holds but I know that whatever may lie ahead will develop me in my major and into the adult I am meant to be.

My school is great because the people there make you feel special and you are all part of a big family. I feel they care about everyone and want everyone to succeed in the career he or she has chosen to pursue. I can't wait to start this journey and see where my future goes from here. For instance we had base camp which allowed you to spend one night and kind of get a feel of what campus life was all about. I had a blast it was so much fun getting to know the people who were going to be in the nursing field with me. Anderson University is one of a kind!

I really enjoy my school, and the teachers who are good are good. However, the teachers who aren't good, ARE HORRIBLE PEOPLE.
