Early Connections

At Anderson University, our mission is to educate students for a life of faith and service in the church and society. Our students learn from professors who practice their discipline in the field, challenge you intellectually, and help you grow spiritually.

Curriculum Resources

We value education and strive to provide students and the community with educational opportunities throughout the year. View the upcoming events, lectures, and spiritual life activities open for you to explore.

HOMESCHOOL CLASSES

You’re invited to take your place among the ideas and passions from students and faculty. Like you, they come from an array of experiences and backgrounds that will enrich your college experience.

Athletics and Intramurals

With 20 intercollegiate sports and 15 intramural sports, students at Anderson University have many ways to get moving and care for their bodies as well as their minds and spirits. Whether you excel on the field or in the pool, there is a place for you to get involved!

This year, we launched both men’s and women’s intercollegiate swimming teams. In 2018-19, our lacrosse teams will form for the first time. Anderson University Ravens participate in baseball, basketball, cross country, football, soccer, softball, track and field, and volleyball as well!

Even more opportunities for involvement take place in club sports. This gives an outlet for cheerleading, rugby, men’s volleyball, and others!

Community Dance Classes

George Salinas, assistant professor of dance, directs Community Dance Class at Anderson University for ages 5-9. Children will have the opportunity to dance, move, and grow physically as well as musically.

Since all students arrive with different levels of skill and experience, children are encouraged to participate in all activities so they can grow and learn from the strengths within each class. Each week students have an opportunity to learn a different genre of dance.

For the fall semester, classes meet every Monday from 5:30-6:30 p.m. in the Dance Annex at the Kardatzke Wellness Center until April 24. Classes resume in the fall semester.

There is no fee to participate, but regular and timely attendance helps our AU students plan and prepare lessons for your children.
