Student Activities hosts about 100 events throughout the school year that are designed to bring the AU community together and create memories that will last far beyond a student’s college career. With an aim to encourage belonging, engage campus, and connect students, the Student Activities program seeks to host fun and engaging events that connect students to AU as a university and to Anderson as their new town. Whether cheering on the Trojans in a free AU t-shirt, traveling to Atlanta to visit a museum and cheer on the Braves, shopping at the Andie Craft Fair—our festival for student makers, or watching fellow students showcase their talent at AU’s Got Talent, Student Activities has something for everyone! We can’t wait to help you make the most of your college experience.
Beginning with New Student Move-In, this week is full of fun campus-wide events to help new students get to know each other and meet upperclassmen.
Usually in mid-October, Homecoming week kicks off with our famous Fall Festival and Homecoming Dance. The week wraps up on Saturday with Parent & Alumni Homecoming—a day of events and great BBQ.
Ice Cream Bash
There is no better way to welcome back students for the spring semester. Ice cream is served “slab style” with all the mix-ins.
Spring Fever Week
This week, usually held in early April, exists to help the campus community beat cabin fever while enjoying the beautiful South Carolina spring. Events, such as the Spring Fling Dance and Spring Fest Music Festival, take place all week long.
Student Appreciation Day
Held in late April, staff and faculty show our appreciation to you, the student. This event includes food, prizes, and other goodies that you won’t want to miss.
