Anderson University is a solid school. It has a very vibrant, overall Christian, community. You will find a diverse group of students, from those who do not seem to care much about schoolwork to those who love thinking and learning. The teachers are caring and accessible, and the classes are quality and challenging for the most part.
Christ centered University committed to helping students obtain their spiritual goals and academic goals. Beautiful small campus with a family like atmosphere. Anderson is place that wants to help students whatever their needs may be. A home away from home.
I genuinely enjoy going to school here because I love being a part of a smaller school. I love the atmosohere and how friendly everyone is. The food is great and the professors are amazing as well. Every teacher I have had is willing to set aside time to make sure their students understand the material. The campus is beautiful, and the housing is pretty good. Some of the nearby areas are not so nice, but overall is a great environment.
I love the community that Anderson provides and the challenges that I am faced with in my academics. Anderson does feel like a home away from home. I believe that Anderson does give a firm foundation for whatever dream someone is wanting to pursue. The encouragement that all of the Anderson community gives is overwhelming, but I think without it AU would not be AU.

If I could go back and talk to myself , I would tell myself to try harder senior year. A lot of seniors decide to "slack" off their last year and have fun. I've never been a student that has had to try hard to receive passing grades. School has come easy to me and I always pass with little effort. As I prepare for college I know that just getting by and receiving passing grades is not acceptable. The next four years I am going to have to work hard and make excellent grades in order to become a nurse. I have to commit the information I learn to memory because it will be part of my job to know how to treat patients right! Trying harder my senior year would have helped prepared me for college. Learning the information from AP Biology would have also helped me in college instead of just remembering the information long enough to pass the test. If I could go back and talk to myself, I would tell myself that senior year in high school is not the end of it, there is still atleast another four years to my educational journey.
My classmates at Anderson University become friends, study partners, and people I love to hang out with!
My school is a very unique and small environment school, that is very proud of its campus.
So far, I have absolutley nothing negative to say about my university. The staff has been extremely helpful and have assisted with every aspect in the admissions process, registration process, and the financial process. Since I am new, I have not experienced anything bad with my school!
I wish I would've known how to manage my time better. It's hard for me to balance social events and academics. I am trying to study abroad in Australia, and it's been difficult trying to find a way to do that because I started looking at this so late. I wish I would've known ahead of time so I could prepare better.
The type of student that should attend this school should have a life centered in Christ. He or she should want to do everything for His glory, including any activities related to his or her major. He or she would have to be accepting of moderatly strict rules that campus provides. He or she should like a small family-like setting and should be willing to support their fellow students and faculty and allow themselves to lean on fellow students and faculty for support.
My school is ranked in the Top List of Southern Comprehensive Universities by U. S. News and World Report.
The best thing is the sense of community. Anderson's students and faculity are like one big, happy family! I love the fact that we have campus worship oppertunities and that we can all come together as one campus to worship! :)
Dealing with financial aid can be really difficult. There aren't nearly enough staff to help all the students. If you don't live close by it is hard to get in contact with them, and their communication over email is not very clear. Often times you need to really push for the information you want when talking to the staff at the front desk. Dealing with anything financially is stressful here.
I think the small, close knit community on campus really makes Anderson University unique. If I do not personally know another student, I have at least seen them on campus multiple times before. There is almost the sense of family when I set foot on campus.
There is a deep focus on God and the student body as a whole.
