College is a time of transformation
Often we think of college as simply a place of classrooms, textbooks, lectures, and tests. It certainly includes all of those. But a good education is much more than that. At least it should be. As you progress through your college journey, you will undergo a transformation. It’s up to you to decide how complete that transformation will be.
At Anderson University, we endeavor to help you become all you were created to be.
Every part of our campus is your classroom. Our residence halls, dining commons, Campus Worship services, athletic events and robust campus life activities are your classroom and your laboratory. You will grow here. You will change here. You will transform.
Through involvement, leadership, and relationships with faculty, staff, and peers, you will grow to know yourself and your gifts. At Anderson, you will also encounter faith in Christ in new, stretching, and refreshing ways.
The Student Development team encourages you to get involved during your university years. Through clubs, athletics, student government, and leadership, students learn and grow and put their classroom learning into practice.
College is a time of transformation. Of becoming. And we look forward to walking alongside you as learn and grow through your Anderson University education.
