Children avoiding school because of the fear of being physically or emotionally abused has an overpowering presence today. A child hiding in the bathroom during lunchtime or a sudden decline in grades are just two of the many signs that an individual may be bullied. Bullying is a rising problem in many schools across the United States, but the Anderson University Department of Psychology decided to do something about the problem in their community.
For the fifth year, Anderson University students presented their work at Scholars' Day. The event, which showcased over 40 student research projects this year, was held in the Reardon Auditorium lobby at the end of the semester.
Covenant Productions® recently won an Emmy® in the Special Event Coverage category from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Lower Great Lakes Chapter for Anderson University’s Candles & Carols production.
In anticipation of the Indianapolis Colts Training Camp, Anderson University is seeking 200 individuals to serve as volunteers. The goal of volunteers serving at camp is to create a safe and enjoyable experience for all visitors to campus.
In order to be a volunteer for the AU Colts Training Camp, the following are required:
Anderson University alumni were invited to the Indiana Statehouse for their regular Alumni Links Breakfast on April 16. Unlike other breakfast gatherings, however, this one took place inside the office of Indiana Gov. Mike Pence.
Alumni Links Breakfasts were started about three years ago by the Office of Alumni Relations to encourage a stronger local alumni network. The breakfasts are held at various locations in Indiana to cater to alumni living in or around the state.
Two Anderson University students won awards for best research paper presented in their discipline at the Alpha Chi Honor Society National Convention in St. Louis at the end of March.
Alpha Chi is an honor society for upperclassmen college students around the nation. According to the Alpha Chi website, “Membership is limited to the top 10 percent of an institution’s junior, senior and graduate students. Invitation to membership comes only through an institutional chapter."
