Anderson University was the most energetic and friendly campus I have visited. The students overall attitude was happy and intentional, it was very easy to see that the students love their college. The school is the perfect size, not being too small or too big. The class sizes sounded perfect, averaging about 28 per class. I would like to see even more people join this college!

I absolutely love Anderson! The campus is beautiful, and the professors are great at their job and they care about you as a person. The students are very friendly, and the food in the Cafeteria is pretty good too! We also have great events!
Anderson University’s academics are excellent. All of the classes are challenging and engaging, and I have not had a professor I did not like thus far. However, it would be a great improvement if Anderson University would work harder on welcoming a more diverse student body, including people of many races and backgrounds. Another area in which Anderson could improve is making certain none of the science teachers are teaching their students evolution, as this is a Christian university.
