Hannah Overstreet, senior history major with minors in political science and public history, got a taste of the windy city this summer as she accepted an internship at The Field Museum in Chicago.
With aspirations of working for an exhibit department of a historical site or library, she was blessed with the opportunity to do just that.
Anderson University will present an exhibition of The Profession and Practice of Illustration and Design. The exhibit will be held in the Jessie C. Wilson Gallery of the Krannert Fine Arts Center from Nov. 3 through Dec. 5, with an opening reception on Friday, Nov. 10, 6-7 p.m.
On Oct. 31, Anderson University will open the new Cybersecurity Engineering Laboratory in the AU Engineering Center. A ribbon-cutting ceremony and reception will take place from 9-10 a.m. and guests can park in the Hartung or Discovery Day parking lots.
An internship is a necessity in the pursuit of a job in today’s workforce. Whether one has a degree in athletic training, business, or history, many employers deem education incomplete without tangible, real-world experience. Anderson University students like Kayla Brandt and Michael Weigel are taking advantage of these opportunities.
We hope you will join us on the Anderson University campus Oct. 13-14 for our Homecoming 2017 celebration! As we conclude our Centennial year, the weekend will be filled with our traditional Homecoming events, as well as a few specific Centennial activities. Family Weekend will also take place during this special time on campus!
Ministry opportunities have been a part of Anderson University’s campus since its inception in 1917 as Anderson Bible Training School, growing larger along with the enrollment of students. However, the catalyst for structure came when President Robert H. Reardon hired Don Collins BA ’51, who had been working as the pastor of Park Place Church of God, as the college’s campus pastor in January of 1978.
Anderson University has always attempted to stay on the cutting edge of technology for the sake of its students. When computers became more mainstream, AU was one of the first colleges to obtain one for student and faculty use. When the Internet became more than just an abstract idea, AU ensured that students could access it not just in the classroom but in their dorms as well.
The first student handbook was published for Anderson University students (then Anderson College) in 1941. The rules, regulations, and tips included in this book are a reflection of the time, although some could still be seen as relevant today.

Anderson University has long been a partner with the City of Anderson in a variety of ways over the last 100 years. The partnership has proved to be valuable for both parties, since the university works to promote the city to its students, and the city works to promote the university to its citizens.
