Great Town and Atmosphere! Anderson is amazing for someone who lives in the small city of Belton. Anderson offers great dining, a race track, movie theaters, museums, an awesome library, and shopping to your heart's content. It also offers a very close-knit family group, since everyone practically knows each other. Our border cities are great and accessible, giving the option to further your adventures. We are right near Clemson (which holds Clemson University- not my favorite school, but great for tailgating and football games!), the Botanical Gardens, and the historical agricultural areas. We also border Greenville which hosts the annual rubber duck race down the falls, great dining options, and live music in the square every week. Our school is located right in the middle of Anderson, close proximity to everything that you could want and need!

I love Anderson University! All the professors and most students are super great and love what they're doing and love the people they're with. I only have two drawbacks. The campus security team could be a lot kinder and they could be A LOT more responsive to students' complaints. That's the big one. The second is just a personal preference. Don't get me wrong, I love my school. But I do wish it was in a bigger area with more things. It's in a relatively small town with not much happening. But if you like that, that's great. I'm more of a city-person.

It's often hard to pick where to eat off-campus because there are so many restaurants around! There's dozens of fast food restaurants within a few miles like Chic-Fil-A, Taco Bell, Little Caesar's, McDonald's, Bojangles, Moe's, Chipotle, Panera, and many more. If you have more money to spend, there's many sit-down restaurants too such as Olive Garden, Outback, Longhorn, Thai Spice, Red Lobster, Chili's, and more. There's also plenty of local coffee shops as well as Starbucks to get coffee and do homework.
