Spring 2022 - A New Year to Make a Difference in Others' Lives
The headlines are still dicey. The pandemic continues to wax and wane. Political incivility is reaching new heights. Natural disasters are seemingly on the rise.
But in Christ, we persist.
Here at Anderson University, we still have much to celebrate. At the close of 2021, Winter Commencement saw 400 AU undergraduate and graduate students receive their degrees, marking their preparedness for new careers and responsibilities. Among our new alumni were 28 Doctor of Physical Therapy graduates–the first class in AU history.
In this Spring 2022 edition of Anderson University Magazine, we hope you’ll be inspired by stories of persistence in the midst of hardship. We hope you'll be inspired by stories of persistence in the midst of challenging times.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we are learning new ways to teach, learn, worship and communicate. And not unlike previous generations that persisted during national turmoil— from the Spanish flu to the Vietnam War era—our students, professors, leaders, and contributors persist by the grace of our Lord and Savior. As you read, continue to celebrate and pray with us, as well as support AU through financial gifts. You can give using the enclosed envelope as well as through andersonuniversity.edu/giving.
As always, we'd love to hear from you! To share your news with us, visit andersonuniversity.edu/brand/requests/share-news.
May we all abide in Christ’s Love.
