What Students Are Saying

4.09 Average Rating
Anderson University is a great Christian school for young men and women who are looking to pursue majors in Education, Business, Nursing, Music, or Ministry. Not only are the students welcoming, but the staff is very personable and supportive. I would recommend Anderson University to any and all of my friends who are looking for a school that challenges their students academically as well as spiritually.

Anderson is a really awesome place from what I have seen and experienced during my three day visit. The Christian attitude surrounding all the students and the campus is amazing. I can't wait to arrive and begin learning at this amazing college.
