Anderson University (Anderson, Ind.) once again earned a place in the top tier among Midwest regional universities in U.S. News & World Report’s Best Colleges 2013 guidebook. The exclusive rankings, which include nearly 1,400 schools nationwide, are available today online, and will also be published in U.S. News & World Report, on newsstands starting September 18. This marks the ninth consecutive year AU has been ranked among the nation’s best colleges.
For six years, the Falls School of Business at Anderson University has offered a marketing course for juniors and seniors that incorporates real-world experience. Integrated Branding and Promotion II gives students experience working with clients. Deidra Colvin, assistant professor of marketing, guides the students through a busy semester full of opportunity.
Anderson University alumnus Graham Brown has always been passionate about where he came from. So passionate, in fact, he centered a business on the idea of people being proud of where they came from. Brown’s business, United State of Indiana, is a company that celebrates Hoosiers by selling T-shirts with an iconic image of the state.
Everyone wants to be connected, and in a world where those connections seem difficult to make, Brown believes he has found a solution.

Some are worded to talk specifically to me while others talk about my “type” in general and thus read rather oddly, but all are quoted directly nonetheless:
