Katie Peters, Admissions Counselor
As one of the newest Admissions Counselors at AU, I am so excited to help you in your college search process! I’m ready and willing to answer all of your questions about Anderson University, and share a few stories of my own experiences as a student here. I love being back on campus, and I hope you’ll schedule a visit to see it for yourself!
I graduated in May of 2009, majoring in English with a Spanish minor. During my time as a student at AU, I was involved in the English Honor Society, Sigma Tau Delta, went on three Tri-S trips; played intramural softball; and volunteered at the Anderson Public Library teaching English to native Spanish speakers.
My hometown is the same as America’s: Muncie, Ind. When I’m not at work, I love to read anything and everything (including the backs of cereal boxes at breakfast!). When I find a TV show I love, I must have access to entire seasons so I don’t miss out on anything! But since you can’t stay indoors forever, I also enjoy kayaking, and hanging out with friends and family. I love to bake — cakes, cookies, pies; anything sweet — and I firmly believe you should always save room for dessert.
Favorite Things About AU
Where to start?! I love everything about this place, including the people. Our faculty and staff are top-notch in their fields, and really make an effort to invest in students’ lives. I love the opportunities AU offers for students to volunteer, both locally (Campus Ministries) and globally (Tri-S). Mocha Joe’s makes the best Turtle Mocha I’ve ever had, and my time in the Residence Halls resulted in life-long friendships. Our student-run Campus Activities Board (CAB) is awesome at coming up with fun events for almost every weekend of the school year!
The College Search Process
Your options can seem pretty overwhelming at the beginning of your college search. I encourage you to do your research and visit as many different schools as you can — a campus visit will really help you get a good idea of how you could fit in. Search for scholarships all year round — most students find scholarships are crucial in order to afford college. By Christmas of your senior year, try to narrow your choices down to 3 schools and apply! Most importantly, pray over your decision, and trust God to place you where you need to be!
