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.
Shortly before 8 a.m. today, October 3, a small fire occurred in the northeast corner of the student lounge within Morrison Hall. The fire was contained and no injuries were reported.

The sprinkler system was localized over the fire and some water damage was discovered in both the lounge as well as two students rooms directly underneath the lounge.
The Anderson University School of Education recently reported that more than 98 percent of student teachers who graduated in May 2007 have found employment. The job placement percentage reflects undergraduate students studying through the School of Education and students in Teach for Indiana Program (TIP) program that provides a full time 10-month alternative licensing program for candidates with a baccalaureate degree who would like to teach elementary (K-5) or secondary (6-12) students.
