The Anderson University School of Music, Theatre, and Dance will present the annual “Candles and Carols” Christmas concert on Friday, Dec. 5, at 7:30 p.m. in Reardon Auditorium on the campus of Anderson University. Celebrating the 50th performance, the annual “Candles and Carols” Christmas program revives many memories for those who attend each year.
Last year, Anderson University students gave back to the community by spending nearly 40,000 hours in service learning and volunteer activities.
Service may be part of the AU tradition, but a team of faculty, staff and students pulling a truck to support United Way of Madison County was new for 2014.
Anderson University will come together this Christmas season to collect filled shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child at Reardon Auditorium on November 12-19.
Operation Christmas Child began in 1993 and according to their website, has become the world’s largest Christmas program. The Samaritan’s Purse project utilizes over 100,000 volunteers each year to help present gift-filled shoeboxes to the needy.
With a face of disbelief, senior nursing major Faith Lim listened as The Indianapolis Star staff announced her as the recipient of the Salute to Nurses Award, which comes with a $3,500 scholarship.
This announcement was made in April during one of Lim’s nursing classes. The scholarship, which Anderson University has sponsored for the past two years, celebrates dedicated nurses and students throughout the state of Indiana.
On November 11, Dirck will present the lecture for C-SPAN’s series entitled “Lectures in the Classroom.” Dirck said he will “discuss Lincoln's personal views on race, African Americans and white supremacy, and how this influenced his later approach to emancipation.”
Friday and Saturday, November 7-8, music teachers from across Indiana and beyond will make their way to Anderson for two days of exciting performances, master classes, conference sessions and other activities, hosted by the Anderson University School of Music, Theatre and Dance.
The Board of Trustees of Anderson University (Anderson, Ind.) is pleased to announce the election of John S. Pistole, J.D., as president-elect. Pistole’s appointment as president-elect of Anderson University was approved by the board of trustees during their fall meeting. Following ratification by the General Assembly of the Church of God (Anderson, Ind.) in June 2015, Pistole will be the fifth person in the nearly 100-year history of Anderson University to hold the position of president.
John Pistole wasn't thinking about leaving his job as administrator of the Transportation Security Administration when members of the Anderson University presidential search committee several months ago asked him to apply for the position.
"I was surprised when they first asked me," Pistole said in an interview with The Herald Bulletin on Thursday. "It wasn't necessarily something I was thinking about. I've thoroughly enjoyed the work I've done at TSA and wonderful people I've worked with here."
