Anderson University - South Carolina Reviews
I love my specific theatre department and the campus is beautiful! However I feel that there is not a lot of diversity on campus. The theatre department is amazing and I feel at home there. I love my college and the friends I've made. I feel that my major specific classes are very helpful, but the gen ed classes sometimes feel boring and unnecessary.
Anderson is a good community school with lots of fantastic people and great professors. However their are a lot of rules regarding visitors and times to be back at the school. There is no specific time set but they shut and lock the gates at "12:00" am but I have found they close earlier leaving you with nowhere to park. There is also some very odd attendance policies, which may cause interference with anyone who has any medical illnesses. The dorm rooms have inconvenient layouts making it difficult to set up beds and have room for desks, also Some of the suites share a bathroom between 5-6 girls. One shower, one toilet and two Mirrors making it difficult to get ready in the morning. Some of the dorm rooms have no air conditioning making the south Carolina heat difficult. Keep in mind this is also a Christian school who has traditional values. I would not recommend to someone who is looking for a school with less religious background.
I am an interior design major at Anderson, and while it is a prety good school, there are some less than satisfactory aspects of the major and the school overall. Anderson does not designate much funding to go towards the school of interior design. The majority of funding goes to the most praised majors: nursing, education, business and Christian ministries, which are great, but leaves design students with a very large supply bill and a very small section of a building to work in. There are some really great things about Anderson though, the campus is small but beautiful, so it is very easy to navigate. There are many options for housing, and there are always events going on around campus, (grocery bingo is the best.) It is definitely not a party school, but it's not the typical private Christian college either. I was drawn to it because the people are authentic, there is no crazy dress code, and Jesus is still a huge part of the campus life.
