Hi! Though my given name is Taylor, please call me "Rudy!" That nickname was awarded to me during my time as an Anderson University student due to a real-life Rudy Ruettiger-esque experience my freshman year. The name has stuck with me ever since. I'd love to share the story should we meet at AU!
All names aside though, I am the Resident Director of Smith Hall on the east end of campus near the Wellness Center. I graduated from AU in 2013 with a degree in Christian Ministries. As a pastor's kid, I am fairly well traveled, having lived in Oregon, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Kansas. However, I have fallen in love with Indiana and have made Anderson my home. I have been so overwhelmed with joy at the opportunity to give back to the AU community after all it gave to me as a student. I also serve in the role of Intramural Coordinator in the office of Student Engagement.
In my spare time, I enjoy all things sports. On a daily basis, I can be found on campus playing pick-up basketball, tossing a Frisbee, throwing a baseball, or just talking about the big game from the previous night with students. I also have a heart for ministering to young men that I incorporate into the team dynamics of sports. Some other favorites of mine include: Mexican food, trivia, watching movies, Detroit Tigers baseball, and puns.
AU is a wonderful place to experience Christ and community, and I'm so thankful to be a part of it!
Rudy has served at Anderson University since 2014.
