“Nothing showcases the academic and spiritual vitality of the university better than the quality work of our students,” said Jim King, director of Admissions for Anderson University. “Not only are Betsy and Jon accomplished musicians, they are also intense believers with a relevant message for their generation. We are excited to offer OrangeHaus music to our prospective students."
Anderson University students influence every aspect of the new OrangeHaus label—such as developing, promoting, marketing, and booking student musicians. Although OrangeHaus provides students the experience of working with an actual record label, the process is viewed as an academic experience. Students receive two credit hours per semester, and are be required to attend regular staff meetings as well as carry out assigned functions within the company.
Funding for OrangeHaus was made possible through a $25,000 campus grant established by Dr. Glenn Falls, professor emeritus of Business and Economics, which annually awards a departmental initiative designed to make a specific program more distinctive. The Anderson University music business major includes more than 59 students and is the largest major in the Department of Music.
Anderson University is a private, four-year, liberal arts institution of approximately 2,600 undergraduate and graduate students. Established in 1917 by the Church of God, the university offers more than 60 undergraduate majors and graduate programs of study in theology, business, and education.
