Student Responses to Review Topic: Am I Enjoying Being Here

    I love the AU environment! The majority of students genuinely want to be here and that increases the enjoyment of everyone. The feel on campus is very relaxed and family-like. I know everyone says that, but at AU the students, faculty, and administration go out of their way to love on each other. God is the center of the school, but there is no legalism to bind you down. It helps to promote a genuineness in the lives of Christians and enables the lost to feel more comfortable and yet still be exposed to the Gospel. I have worked at another college, stayed at four over night, and visited the campuses of many others, and I can honestly say that AU is the most beautiful and has the most unique atmosphere. The dorms are wonderful and actually feel like home too. Though the cafeteria does not always have the best food, they have a wide variety of options, so you never go hungry. Food for Thought is also a convenient choice for the student in a hurry. The library is huge and well stocked (at least in the Christianity, history, and education sections; I have had little contact with the other sections). It would be nice if the cafeteria hours were longer, but on the plus side it provides a great place to hang out with friends. The ladies in the cafeteria also know many of the students by name and ask about their personal lives while giving them food.

    The teachers and people always greet you regardless of prejudices, etc. They even have a student center and other areas for all kinds of students to socialize with one another.

    Although Anderson is a small town, my friends and I have been on countless adventures. From snowball fights in the winter to mountain climbing and frisbee in the fall, we always find something to do! Anderson is a fabulous place for people who enjoy studying peacefully outside. The campus is truly beautiful and I have enjoyed studying and playing outside on Anderson University grounds.

    I ended up transferring from Anderson University my Freshman year. However, this wasn't due to the campus. The campus itself was great. It's small enough to feel comfortable and everyone is polite. The cafeteria food was okay except on the weekends. Kingsley and the Village are definitely the best dorm rooms. I ended up transferring because I switched to a major they didn't offer.
