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.
Change seems to be a pretty common theme in education this year in Anderson.
Anderson University began its first day of classes Tuesday with a new major, a name change for one of the schools, some additional business concentrations and a new approach to adult education.

And some students have noticed the changes over the years.
Since 1971, Walt Disney World has been making dreams come true. From Magic Kingdom to modern icons such as Woody and Nemo, kids have grown up with Disney creations. Anderson University management major Elijah Alvey had been inspired to work for this historic organization, and recently he achieved that goal. In January, he began an eight-month journey as an intern in the Caribbean Cove of Walt Disney World.
