Your Journey...Continued

Greetings from your beloved alma mater — and thank you for visiting the online home for the Anderson University Alumni Association.

We created this site to provide you with a wealth of resources that we hope you will find beneficial: professional/career development, service opportunities, and news from fellow members of your alumni family — to name a few.

Please take some time to peruse the various resources and opportunities that are available. It is our hope to continue to provide meaningful services to our alumni. Please feel free to contact our office if we can be of further assistance.

As an alumnus of this wonderful university, I love talking with Anderson alumni from all over the globe. I would love to connect with you, too. Whether you need assistance or you want to check out what’s new on campus, we are here to help. No matter when you arrived at AU as a student — or graduated to become a member of our alumni family — we all have memories that bridge generations and inspire us to say with one voice…

LONG LIVE ANDERSON!
