Support for varsity sports isn't school-wide, but students attend home events for the "major" sports. School spirit is strong. Intramural a are a huge part of school and it seems almost everyone participates in at least one season.

The price tag was high, but automatic scholarships cover over $10,000 a year, and applying for other scholarships will only help. Definitely fill out the FAFSA. Beyond that, apply for any and every scholarship for which you are eligible. Also look into work study for additional aid.

The university is known for its acceptance of all minorities. Sexuality and religion are aspects of diversity most likely to feel out of place, but even then the school represents a variety of religious views and acceptance of diverse sexualities has been discussed extensively in classes and as general assembly.

Students can't live off campus until their senior year. I don't know much regarding off campus housing as I haven't yet considered off campus living. Safety can be an issue as the nearby town has rough neighborhoods in some areas.

The Education major, while intensive, has students in the classroom from the very beginning. Observations are started the first semester of freshman year and students are expected to be working with children on a regular basis. The program itself makes graduates desirable to schools and there has been at least a 90% job placement rate right out of college. The other 10% usually continue their education or take time for volunteer work or choose to take time before starting a career.

A Christian focus is placed in all areas of study, but professors are determined in having students learn how to think for themselves and in their own takes on faith and life. While a private Christian university, the school is very liberal and encourages questions that lead to discovery.

Indiana weather is unpredictable. If you aren't a native of the central US, you will struggle. It can be 60 and sunny one day and feel like 12 the next. Tornado danger isn't severe, and weather tends to be calm, but expect drastic changes and annual snow.

Aside from the bookstore and a coffee shop/lounge area, the student center doesn't have anything. Chic-fil-a is coming, but construction is behind and one restaurant really isn't going to make the student center a social hub.
College Freshman 2013-11-23T07:18:53Z
Restaurants are a good 5-15 minutes away, but there's a nice variety near the highway exit. Places can be costly though, so only a few places are common late-night runs.

Not always perfect. Internet can be slow, and wireless is only inside the buildings. Plenty of computers are available and there are printers all over campus.

The parking is okay. Its never more that a few blocks to walk from parking to a class. There are not enough spaces. They have taken away some of the student parking for more faculty parking, but have not created any new student parking.

I have lived here my entire life, and I am old enough to be the parent of most students, so I am used to the weather here. The weather here is finicky; if you don't like the weather/temperature one day, wait a couple of days and it will change.

As an adult student/commuter, I am not involved in student life on campus.

This is a good school where most of the professors are understanding, and care about you and your success. I have not met one that will not help you if you need it. The Kissinger Learning Center is great for anyone who may be having difficulties in classes. They set up study groups and tutoring, they will pre-read essays and reports and offer suggestions, they will help you set up a study schedule that works for you- all free.

I am an adult student/commuter. I have owned my own home in this town for seventeen years. I am unaware of the off-campus housing situation.

Guys & Girls:
I am a commuter who is old enough to be their parent; I have no idea how to describe the traditional students for you.

I live off campus and dive my own vehicle. I have no knowledge of the transportation situation here. The only reason I clicked that it was nonexistent is because it wouldn't let me go on if I did not pick something.
College Senior 2013-11-20T17:17:41Z
As an commuter, I do not experience a lot of these aspects of the college life.

I am an adult student who lives off campus with my family. Answering these questions would not be appropriate due to my lack of knowledge.

This is a Christian school, so there are obviously going to be some issues where there are clashes, but there are some people here who are openly homosexual and I've never heard anything about discrimination. I think this school is very accepting to other races/cultures, and there are many students who come from other countries.

Not much here for off campus dining, unless you own a car. There are only one or two options within walking distance. If you have a car, your options are good with many choices just a few miles down the road.
College Senior 2013-11-20T17:08:31Z
The student center is old, and they are in the process of remodeling/updating the dining facilities there, so that is mess right now, but should be better soon

The Wellness Center (fitness center) is good size. There is plenty of gym equipment to be used by students, athletes or not, including ellipticals and treadmills. There is also an indoor walking/running track and a pool.

Health & Safety:
It's great-- for now. I always see the campus police driving around and patrolling. It would be easy to flag one down if you needed one. They also help with jump starting vehicles, unlocking vehicles if you lock your keys inside, etc. BUT they are getting ready to get rid of the entire security department and just use the local police, and they are a corrupt joke.

Anderson has been struggling since the GM plant went out. It is not filled with a lot of low-income residents which isn't necessarily a bad thing but the crime rates have gone up and the ability to find safe, good-looking housing is a struggle.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
