Three new brick colonial buildings became available to seminary students this academic year, completing the group of apartments located on Walnut Street between Sixth and Seventh streets. The first phase of the village was dedicated in August 2006.
Anderson University students past, present and probably future gathered along University Boulevard Saturday for the Ravenfest street fair.
Held as part of AU’s Homecoming weekend, the fair included students selling everything from cookies to dates with college-aged men to raise money for their various campus organizations.
Former Raven athletes Robert Adcock, Miriam (Garner) England, Frank Runion and James Wehsollek were inducted into the Anderson University Athletic Hall of Fame as the Class of 2007 on Saturday night at the Kardatzke Wellness Center.
Robert Adcock, a Norwalk, Conn. Native, was a four-year starter on both the baseball and football teams at Anderson, including starting both ways on the football team. In baseball, he was a three-time team MVP (1961-63) and a two-time All-Conference (1962-63) selection. In football, he was All-Conference after the 1962 season.

Coolidge (Distinguished Alumni Award); Ken & Mendy Nehrbass (Distinguished Young Alumni Award); H.L. Baker (Distinguished Service Award); Loren & Elouise Sutton (John H.
Jon McLaughlin has had quite a year. Certainly one for the ole scrapbook.
The highlights? There’s his music being used in the movies "Georgia Rules" and "Bridge to Terabithia," as well as making his own silver-screen debut later this fall in Disney’s "Enchanted." That comes after McLaughlin appeared in an episode of the daytime soap "The Bold & The Beautiful" in August.
Dr. Robert A. Nicholson, president emeritus of Anderson University and Dr. Michael Collette, vice-president for Enrollment Management and Information Systems, helped found the School of Adult Learning (SOAL) in 1987 with the hope that it would support and serve the local community of Anderson and Madison County. "It started out of a commitment to our mission, our community and this area," said Collette.
Twenty years later SOAL still serves that purpose.
It’s Christmas 1942, and the world is at war. But at radio station WOV in New York City, men and women are trying to put their best faces forward for an hour or so.
That’s the set up for “The 1940’s Radio Hour,” Anderson University’s latest theater production, which opens Friday.
The Anderson University Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) team recently announced five companies that SIFE Consulting & Entrepreneurship will be assisting throughout the upcoming academic year. This is the fourth year for SIFE Consulting, a program that is being funding through a partnership with the Flagship Enterprise Center.
“If you’ve ever seen that TV show ‘Cheers,’ it’s like the character Norm,” said Joshua Scott.
As owner of TransAtlantic Collections, Scott’s business is third-party collections. He settles unpaid bills, such as the unpaid tab accumulated by the amiable patron of the fictional Boston bar.
For Scott, however, the business relationship is not as friendly as a neighborhood watering hole. Court costs, increasing competition and Anderson’s economic woes make every day a challenge. That is where Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) enters the picture.
