Spring 2021 - It's time to Celebrate!
With joy we share these exciting stories...
If all goes well, by the time you’re reading this issue of AU Magazine, you would have celebrated the holidays, be headed towards spring, and hearing better COVID-19 news. From our end, we’re celebrating the completion of a historic semester at Anderson University. While many college students were required to learn from home through video-conferencing applications, by God’s grace, fall 2020 students at AU completed the semester on campus with physical distancing and mask-use precautions.
And while that news alone is worth 1,000 “Hallelujahs!”, we are pleased to report many more reasons in this edition of AU Magazine.
With joy we share these exciting stories and thank you for your loyal interest and support of educating traditional, adult, online and graduate students at AU. We are keeping you in our prayers in 2021. We are grateful for your continued prayers and gifts. Contributions by mail and online through andersonuniversity.edu/giving support the work at AU, which we can celebrate in future issues of AU Magazine.

Anderson Magazine Fall 2020 - The Fabric of AU
If you missed this edition, it's about some of AU's heroes.
They aren’t the kind of heroes that immediately come to mind. They don’t wear capes or leap tall buildings in a single bound. They are the givers, the ones who sacrifice, the true friends, the encouragers, the prayer warriors and the ones who give without trumpets. Each are committed to the example of Jesus, who said, “But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret.” (Matthew 6:3-4a)
We’re not going to recount everything you may be tired of hearing on TV and the internet. But before, during and after COVID-19, the folks you will read about in this edition of AU Magazine make up the Fabric of AU. They represent our most deeply held values: faith, hospitality, generosity, innovation, hard work and humility.
If you’re reading this magazine, you are an integral part of the fabric of Anderson University. Something within you inspired you to attend AU, send your child to AU, teach at AU, work at AU and perhaps give to AU. If any of the stories in this issue resonate, continue supporting the University through your continued prayers and gifts. You can support our shared mission with the enclosed envelope, or online at andersonuniversity.edu/giving.
