Anderson University recently announced that Dr. James L. Edwards, President Emeritus, will address the graduating class of 2015 during commencement exercises on Saturday, May 9. The 3 p.m. EDT program will be conducted in the Ward Fieldhouse of the Kardatzke Wellness Center. Speaking during Anderson University’s baccalaureate service will be Rev. Dr. Diana L. Swoope, senior pastor at Arlington Church of God in Akron, Ohio.
The opportunity to help churches and faith-based organizations gain momentum through creative and compelling communication strategies is what drove Anderson University seniors Dalton Cox and Mark Hofstrom to intern at Fishhook this past summer.
Fishhook is an Indianapolis-based communications and marketing agency primarily serving religious groups.
Cox, who helped create and manage video and online components, learned about the internship from the founder’s daughter, a fellow AU student.
Gaining real-life experience in the classroom is a goal for many Falls School of Business students. This semester, students in the sports marketing class got that experience.
Students have planned sporting events, met and networked with industry professionals, and visited professional sports facilities and venues. Anna Stumpf, assistant professor of marketing, and Scott Zebedis, adjunct professor, co-taught and built the class around experiential learning.
Anderson University ensures that its students are provided with ample opportunities to see classroom concepts in practice through a variety of methods: job shadowing, overseas trips, and industry conferences.

In August 2013, students from Covenant Productions® took a trip to Jinotepe, Nicaragua, to shoot a video for Children of Promise, a nonprofit organization.
Be Individual. Think Broadly. Be Real. Be Distinct.
These words are the inspiration and theme for the American Eagle brand and company culture. These words were also the inspiration for senior marketing major Natalia Concepcion, as she had the opportunity to live out these attributes through a merchandising internship with the popular retailer.
“The internship program itself is extremely competitive,” Concepcion said. “You are constantly being evaluated on things.”
