Alumni Info

“Upon entering my first job out of college, I felt that my education from Anderson University’s Department of Kinesiology put me at an advantage compared to my co-workers in terms of knowledge in the field. The hands-on practice and variety of experiences that I had at AU gave me a library of health promotion ideas that I still pull from in my job today.”
- Mechelle Meadows BA ‘08
