I did not want to go to Anderson University. It was so close to home and in high school, everyone wants to go to a big college or a college that is far away from home. When I fell into AU, I was hoping it would only be a semester or year, at the most, until I could transfer somewhere else bigger and better to play baseball. After my first day on campus, I never had those thoughts again.
The number one thing I loved about Anderson was the community feel when you get on campus. Almost everybody knew everybody else. Some may consider this a bad thing but I loved getting to know and be around my peers there. When I graduated, I thought I knew almost everybody but there was one girl that I hadn’t met yet. One night, my last finals had been taken, I met up with some friends to play some putt-putt. There was a girl there I had never met before. Almost two years later, I ended up making her my wife!
Contributing to the community feel is the wonderful on campus living. It wasn’t always the most fun living in dorm rooms but you get to be around so many great people. I wouldn’t trade my two years living in Smith Hall for anything. People’s doors were always open and everyone always wanted to hang out with everyone. There was also a lot going on campus. Whether it be intramurals, athletic teams, Encore, or Cheap Thrills, there was always something to do.
The biggest contribution to the community feel was me rushing the social club Dativus my senior year. I grew more as a person, friend, and most importantly a Christian in my senior year than any other year of my life combined. Rush was physically, mentally, and spiritually exhausting but I would not be anywhere close to the person and husband I am today without having the opportunity to go through that rigorous week with my fellow “rushees”. It brought all of us together in the most positive and loving ways.
Finally, if you don’t fully invest in this school, you will not reap the rewards it can offer you. You will only feel the pressure of having to pay off the $30,000/year debt it has put you in. If you come to Anderson, you have to be prepared to buy into the community approach that campus leaders apply. You have to go to class and get work done. You have to put your heart and soul into your athletic team. If you don’t do these things, it will be no fun for you now and it will be even less fun later when you are paying off your college debt.
Anderson University is the school I was meant to be at. I participated in campus events, athletics, intramurals, and went to class. If you come to this great school, please invest your lives in it. You won’t be disappointed with the person you turn out to be and the people you get to spend the rest of your life with.
I love this school! It's a beautiful place and an excellent place to grow as a Christian and as a student.
when I went to visit I felt comfortable and felt as though the teachers were easy to talk to. The dorms were nice and the students are very welcoming. In my opinion, I am very excited to attend Anderson University and I am excited for what's to come.
Anderson University is a pretty good school to be at. There's many things to do on campus, which is nice since there isn't much to do outside of campus. There's some days where the campus feels very small, like you see everyone all the time, but then other days there's not a soul around you do know. We all are learning to live in community with each other, and love the Lord.

Community. Feeling like you belong to a family and to a huge circle of friends. That is what is so great about my college. When you step foot on AU's campus--you become part of it's makeup, part of it's being; and it becomes part of you. It might sound cheesy or overdone. But I myself, and others will tell you time and time again that AU is a place where you are loved--not discarded as just another face in the huge mass of learners.
I chose Anderson University because I felt welcome. At a school so small, you'd think that you knew everyone, but you don't! However even if you don't know some people, they're usually recognizable and very friendly.
Open house hours. I realize that Anderson University is a Christian campus that is concerned about the students that attend. I knew there was no alcohol allowed on campus; that doesn't bother me. However, I did not know the extent of open house hours for the dorms. Simply put, they are few and far inbetween. On Monday and Wednesday, hours are from 6pm-10pm. On Friday, from 5pm-12am; Saturday from 1-12am and Sunday from 1-9pm. This alone wouldn't have stopped me from coming, but it was a suprise to have so few hours.
One who does not believe in community.
Anderson University is best known for being a christian liberal arts school that not only offers a variety majors but teaches their students in a way that students learn to incorporate their faith into their future career.
The groups I'm involved in and the friends I hang out with.
There is a very active politcal feel on campus. There are lots of different ideas and discussion happening almost always on campus. Even though it is considered a "Christian" school, there are lots of different ideas about what that, and related aspects, means.
