4 College Junior

Campus Quality: After seeing Anderson University, I can say that the school itself is very nice and the campus grounds are very well kept. The town it is in in very small and will give anybody a "home" kind of feeling.

Parking: Because Anderson has a small campus, parking is close to the dorms and classes, however there isn't nearly enough! It's so hard to find a spot other than the ones in the very back parking lot, I can't imagine what it's like for commuters.

Diversity: Anderson University has a very high acceptance rate. The majority of the students are Caucasian, but there are also African-American and Asian-American students. There are also a good bit of students from other countries, that come to AU mainly to plan sports. Even though it is a Christian university affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention, there are a variety of religious backgrounds, including those that do not believe in God at all. Political beliefs also vary, but the majority are conservative. There are also a handful of students on the campus of around 3,000 that are homosexual. Through all the differences, the campus runs very smoothly and no one is ostracized.

Campus Housing: The female dorms at Anderson vary. There are new ones, but there also 100 year old ones. They stay clean with the help of the great custodial workers at AU. The really new dorms (and single rooms) cost extra at Anderson, but it is worth it if you like your own privacy. The social atmosphere is great at Anderson! There are also events being held in the residence halls in order for students to get to know who they are living with. It is very convenient to live on a small campus, and not have to drive to class. The longest walk to one of my classes my first two years was about 8 minutes, which is not bad at all!

Administration: Alcohol and drugs are not allowed on campus, which is also a smoke-free area. We are also only allowed to have members of the opposite sex in our rooms from 7-11pm everyday except Sunday and Wednesday. The door is required to stay open, with the light on, and our feet on the floor at all times. RA's do rounds to check approximately every hour. Since Anderson is a Christian school, they try to prevent the students from putting themselves in certain positions, at least on campus. I am very satisfied with these regulations. I am glad my roommates don't have guys over until the wee hours of the morning. It makes me feel safe, and not have to worry about my own privacy.

Weather: The weather at Anderson is very nice the majority of the time. It rains often, but since it is a small campus, I never get extremely wet going to and coming from classes.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I enjoyed all the music education and music courses that I took when I was at Anderson University. All the faculty worked together to make sure they were giving the best education possible to each student. I am very glad that I choose Anderson University as my school for my undergraduate degree.

2 College Senior

Technology: Some of the equipment in the general population lab is old. The key boards are worn and the monitors are blurry.

5 College Senior

Administration: AU is a Christian college. The rules help to strengthen our commitment to our beliefs.

Administration: Not as strict as Bob Jones, but they do have rules that help keep students safe. There is no drinking on campus, and boys and girls can go into each others dorms only during certain times of the day.

Campus Quality: Students really love going to school here. The programs are great. It is a smaller class size so there is a lot of help from the teachers. The teachers are approachable. It is a more expensive school, but it is worth it.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There is a higher female to male ratio, but this doesn't seem to be a problem.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There are a substantial amount of sports and each one is well equipped.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I did receive a decent amount of financial aid, but it was still not enough. It is not easy to find the money you are missing when the college only sees what your parents make yearly and decide it is enough that they can pay for a certain amount; which is not always correct. It is best to talk to financial aid in person because they do not get back to emails quickly.

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus because they go above and beyond to try and keep every student safe. If there is an escapee from the hospital or a suspicious person around the campus we get emails telling us about it and are told that campus security is on high alert. They do the best they can having a small security detail, but the campus is not real big which is great because if you're out late in another building it is not a long walk to get back to the dorm room.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is always some kind of pasta and meat every day. The only fruit choices are between an apple, orange, and banana. There is not any dairy free food choices for the people that cannot eat dairy. There are two other places on campus to eat known as the Grille and Food For Thought. At the grille they always have burgers and hot dogs and any food that is easy to make and serve. Food For Thought is where people go to eat greasy, overly cheesy pizza. The people serving the food are nice but other than that, you get really bored by the day to day food options.

Majors: I'm in creative writing. The programs just getting off the ground and is pretty small, but its challenging and the teachers are awesome. They're all really invested in e students and want to see us succeed and become better writers. On that topic, a lot of them grade based on how much you improve not on how well you do, so you do have to stay on top of your work and really put forth some effort. Since the english department is trying to expand, especially the writing part of it, they're pretty eager to accept people

Athletics: Seriously, it's a small school sports opportunities are limited. The main sport on campus is varsity men's soccer, and there are a bunch of foreign guys on the team. Men's basketball gets a bit of support, too. Everything else exists, but is basically ignored by the student body.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: The salad bars always good. The meet is rarely identifiable. In the main caf, there's a great sandwich line. There's also a grill with hamburgers and hotdogs and such which is pretty greasy but tasty enough. There is a pizza place which is good but only every now and then (the salad bar in the pizza cafe is awesome though).

2 College Junior

Party Scene: I don't party or drink. I've seen a few bars and there's a club downtown, but I don't know if its any good. I've heard of parties at students off-campus houses. Anderson is a dry campus and there are severe consequences to being caught with alcohol. Mostly it's a place to chill with friends in smaller groups. The best place to go for fun is Greenville, forty minutes away.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: The atmosphere at Anderson University is an atmosphere worth living in. I love Anderson because there is so much to do, and everywhere you go there are always people there willing to help in any way possible. Walking around Anderson University, you will find plenty of smiling faces, and the Professors actually talk to you outside of class and are interested in how you are doing. There are plenty of shops, restaurants, and sports centers to do things on your spare time. Greenville, SC is also nearby which is a very fun place to hang out on the weekends.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are three different dining halls to eat at, at Anderson University. I graded campus dining a B because two of this dining halls serve the same thing every day so the food gets old after a while. The other dining hall is good and has two different lines to get in serving two different days. Some days, these dining halls are out of a lot of food, beverages, etc. But, most of the time the food is good and fills me up with satisfaction.

3 College Freshman

Technology: The design lab has very nice Macintosh computers, but are only available for designers. The other computers on campus are reliable, but a little outdated.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: You really won't go anywhere unless you have a car. The shuttles and other methods have certain time and size constraints.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Apartment complexes are really nice and there are multiple options that are within a 10 minute drive to campus.
