Two separate evaluating organizations, the East Central Indiana Advertising Federation and the National Admissions Advertising Awards, recognized Anderson University’s efforts.

The East Central Indiana Advertising Federation honored AU Publications with two ADDY awards for a full-page—four-color—advertisement, entitled “Oh The Places You’ll Go” produced for Campus Life magazine. The advertisement received an award in the Consumer Magazine and Judges Choice categories. The ad, created by AU graphic designer Kerry Shaw, AU senior writer Joy May, and AU student photographer Jen Vorhis, was among a series that features recent AU graduates and activities.

The AU Office of Media and Electronic Communications also received a Citation of Excellence Award from the East Central Indiana Advertising Federation in the Interactive Media category for the Anderson University public Web site: Managed by director Chris Williams and editor Julie Tuttle, the updated Web site design and structure was launched in November of 2001. The new university Web site represents a collaborative effort between AU and professional design vendor Brainstorm Design and distributed data developer Bottled Software. Both firms are based in Indianapolis.

Both offices also earned recognition from the National Admissions Advertising Awards. AU Media and Electronic Communications received a silver award for the AU public Web Site among schools that support between 2,000-4,999 students. The AU Publications office also earned a gold medal for their ad series in Campus Life magazine and merit awards for the Anderson University admissions newsletter, info@anderson, as well as a brochure produced specifically to market the AU sports program.

Anderson University is a private, four-year, liberal arts institution of approximately 2,400 students. Established in 1917 by the Church of God, the university offers more than 60 undergraduate majors and graduate programs of study in business, education and theology.
