Anderson University-Anderson, IN Top Questions

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?


It's expensive to attend if your parents don't have a well paying job.


The most frusturating thing about my school is that most people see us as judgmental and self righteous. They believe that because we are a small campus and because it's private that we are snotty. We're so not! I am a part of a caring campus, and I wish people could see that. We as a student body all have our own issues, but we try to deal with them as a whole. It is definetly frusturating when people don't see that.


The food variety gets old quick.


Although I thoroughly love Anderson University, there is one thing that is quite frustrating. With it being a Christian university, there are times when I feel a bit baby-sat by residential director and teachers. I want to have that extreme freedom that I expected a college student to have but I realize the rules that are set are set for our safety as students and I am actually thankful for that.


Conservative views and the board that controls everything. AU also needs to be more willing to be environmentally-friendly. Also, students are not allowed to be gay and that is wrong and a serious problem.


For me the most frusterating thing about my school is the lack of diversity. I know they market for it, but it just doesn't seem to bring in a diverse crowd.


Dining options.


There is not a lot to do around the area in the city, but you can drive 30 minutes and get to somewhere fun.


The rules and administration. They liked to keep a close watch so much so it was invading of privacy and enough to make me leave for a semester.


It's expensive and with the economy doing poorly financial aid is becoming harder to get. Not impossible but nearly everyone will be paying off student loans once they graduate.


The school bookstore, where students get their textbooks, is horrifically expensive. The textbooks are grossly overpriced and most students don't understand that there are other ways to get books. It's bad because this school is expensive enough to begin with, but then a person can spend 1000 dollars on books in a year.
