Anderson University - IN Reviews
I will be graduating from Anderson University in May of 2019 and I am happy to have gone to an undergraduate school where it is so evident that the faculty and professors care so much about how you are doing as a student and do their best to be sure that you feel welcomed as a student. I will be graduating with a degree in psychology, and I can say that I truly enjoyed being a student that was part of the psychology department; the professors are caring, funny, and truly want to prepare you for your future however they can.
My Bachelor's degree in Religious Studies from Anderson University, IN, prepared me for admission into a top tier graduate program immediately following graduation. The professors within the department were strong scholars in their disciplines, who provided clear instruction in the classroom, coupled with appropriate assignments for research outside the classroom. My professors cared about my success as a student and as a person. I am thankful for my time at Anderson University, IN, working in the Religious Studies Department.
The social work program at Anderson is excellent. However, the university itself has gone through many changes that lead me to avoid recommending it. Programs have been slashed, faculty let go, and priorities shifted to fit into what the world wants. The finances of the university appear to be so poorly managed that they are overloading their retained staff with more and more duties without providing additional assistance or resources. The admissions department alone has been cut dramatically and is now led by recent graduates. The religious conversations were much more open during my time, but in the past few years have become more "religious right" and contested.
I really enjoyed attending Anderson University. The professors were great and were one of my favorite parts of the school. The classes were challenging but definitely manageable and I really learned a lot during my time there that has prepared me for a future career.
Anderson University was a great choice for me. It solidly prepared me for a career in the sciences, specifically in the area of chemistry. I was able to get a job at a respected college immediately following graduation. The class sizes were small and the professors were very approachable.
This program is excellent. It is a Christian University, so it ties faith and your job together in such an impactful way. They really start to prepare you not only for the NCLEX but for the real world from day one. Excellent and compassionate professors that are with you every step of the way. Even when you fall off track they are there to comfort you and to help you through and to succeed. I would recommend this institution to anyone!
As a student at Anderson University, I can say that this school will prepare you for your future. I am only a freshman, and have fallen in love with the rigor of the courses. Some freshman have fallen behind because they were not ready for the transition, while some students are succeeding and taking their courses on full speed. This university cares for its students, without holding their hand. I have not been accepted into the nursing program, due to the fact I am not a sophomore and have not taken the required courses yet. However, I have began taking nursing courses. They want to make sure you know what you are getting yourself into and know what the field you are studying before you find out you will not love it, when it is too late. Anderson University is student oriented, their academics are rigorous, and manageable. The Kissinger Learning Center was set up to offer students homework help, tutors, study sessions, and study tables for athletes. Students are assigned a first year advisor, until they declare their major. Once they have declared they are then assigned an advisor in their field. We even get a peer mentor and a peer group, in hopes that you will connect with someone and for you to trust your mentor. Anderson University is a great place to attend, it is small, with a big heart so to say. They care, and create a community of support for students. From your peer group, to your advisor, to the professors, to the people you go to class with you start to feel belonging and in a great community. Honestly, you quickly become comfortable and grateful for this school.
Anderson University is an intentional academic institution. The student to faculty ratio is small, allowing personal relationships to develop.
Good overall school with lots of one on one attention.
Anderson University is a great community of learners, believers, and researchers. With around 3500 students on campus, by the time you've been on campus for a few months, most people have familiar faces, and when you graduate, you know most of the professors and students by name. Great learning environment where professors are passionate about seeing their students succeed in their career and in their relationship with Christ.
