My experience at Anderson University so far has been great. The faculty is extremely caring and considerate of all students. Each faculty member strives to make students feel connected with them and are eager to help them succeed. There are many different organization opportunities around the campus so there is always something to do or an invitation floating around. The dining hall and other food sources around campus are amazing! Anderson University feels like home for me and I couldn't have made a better college decision.

This is my first year at AU. I really like the school ! There are plenty of activities to do and ways to get involved. Most of the professors are good . The campus is beautiful. It seems like they are always cleaning up and making it look nice. The dorms are nice too! The classroom sizes are pretty good too. The athletics are a fun part of the campus too. The size of the campus is just about right. The food is no too bad either. There is also a CFA and Eienstein’s on campus ! I really like that! Overall I think this is a really good school!
I've attended Anderson University for a year now and have throughly enjoyed it. The academics are definitely challenging but the professors are always willing to take time out of their schedule to help with any difficulties. The majority of students are from the area so being an out-of-state student, the weekends can be uneventful because most people go home. Overall the campus is extremely nice and the food is satisfactory. I'm very happy I chose to attend this school.
