Anderson University - South Carolina Reviews
I found a lot of friends right away at school. There are plenty of attractive people for dating, of which I did my fair share, and overall the staff is good.
Academically I had a mixed experience. A lot of the professors are passionate and great instructors. But there are also a fair amount of professors that either suck at teaching or I just generally disliked.
I would rate the school average because the program that I was in, Graphic Design, was overall a pretty negative experience. There are a few great professors in the program, but there are several that I had a very bad experience with and I know a lot of other students did as well. The design program has to have nearly a 40% drop rate, and I wish I would have switched programs or even gone to another school. Keep in mind that program matters a lot!
