I love AU! It has a great community of students and faculty. All the professors want to help all their students succeed! I absolutely love being a part of this school. They have many different majors and minors, and if they don't offer what you want, they will help you find a way to get there! All of the faculty members are so motivated to help their students, and you can tell they all love what they do. The athletics programs are pretty great too! The coaches are invested in their athletes and want to help them achieve their best!
Review Anderson University - Indiana
I loved my experience at AU! The professors are both extremely intelligent and compassionate. The campus is beautiful in the fall, and I enjoyed my time living in Morrison Hall. It is definitely a place where you find lifelong friends and mentors.
Anderson University is HOME! It is a great university and is my dream school! It is small enough that I know all of my professors and can get one-on-one help. I am able to be involved and get to know many of the students. I love the feeling of community and the culture at AU. There are many opportunities for service, mission, and culture trips to a variety of interesting places. Anderson University is where I am meant to be.
