The latest edition of Synthesis, the award-winning online magazine produced by students in the Anderson University College of Arts and Sciences, is now online. 

Summer 2024 Synthesis articles include a student’s filmmaking journey, producing comical “mockumentaries” paying homage to some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbuster classics. There’s also a story about Res Historica, a student-produced journal that is already winning awards, although it’s only been around for a couple of years.  

Also, Anderson University Psychology Professor Patty Slaughter is interviewed about helping students be their best selves and to know their God-given purpose in life. Another article highlights coding as a rewarding career field and talks about how an app developed by Professor of Communication James Duncan to track chapel attendance has become widely adopted in the higher education world—and not just for chapels. 

Read also about how the Connect Club provides a platform for students from diverse backgrounds to foster a more inclusive campus environment, as well as how the Behavioral Sciences Club helps launch students into meaningful careers.  

Synthesis articles also feature AU’s Honors Program and the life skills it develops in students, as well as Thrift Library’s expanding resources for students and its commitment to preserving more than a century of institutional history. 

In another feature, College of Arts and Science students talk about how their internships are transforming “book smarts” into “work smarts.” Also, faculty, staff and students participating in AU Abroad speak about the value of study abroad experiences and how engaging other cultures benefits their lives on so many levels.  

Synthesis is produced by students in the Department of Communication’s Editing and Layout course, taught by Professor Robert Reeves. Students involved in the production of the Summer 2024 issue of Synthesis include De’Shaun Booker, Avery Haan, Meg Hayton, Makenna Massey, Christina McEwan, Olivia Mettee, Joshua Senter, Abby Smith, Reese Tabor, Avery Torok and Caitlyn Wilde.
