AU Bloggers

Name: Joshua Powell

About Me: I come from three or four generations of AU alums, and I never expected to follow them, but God opened all the doors for me to come to Anderson and I couldn't be happier about it. I wanted to go to a school that modeled Christian values and that had a strong, productive music program, and I found the perfect combination here. I felt immediately welcomed at AU and have since come to know that it is home to some of the most amazing people you'll ever know.

About Me: Hello there! I hail from outside the one-main-street-town of Bristol, Indiana. I am studying business management and theatre. My favorite food is ice cream. My favorite pro-football team is the Indianapolis Colts (Go Colts!) and of the Big Ten college teams, I am 100% Boilermaker (Boiler UP!)! As far as hobbies go, I read, snorkel, and play eight instruments. I'm super excited to be attending Anderson University as a freshman this fall and hope that as you explore campus and get to know the amazing people here, you decide to call AU home too.

Name: Lizzie Loveland

About Me: Hey everyone! I found out about AU Indiana shortly after my uncertain prayers about attending an Art School that I had been accepted into. God, being the great intervener, took my home-sick-from-school boredom and spontaneously Googled a friend's suggestion of Anderson University (the one in South Carolina). I fortunately looked at, researched, and applied to this one in Indiana. When I compared the two colleges and prayed, I realized I felt called to take the initiative and check out AU, where I instantly felt a peace and excitement. I have found AU to be the perfect home-away-from home. I have had the most amazing Christian fellowship, have been pushed to perform and achieve to my capabilities, and have had a great time doing it all! Imagine taking dance classes and ministry classes for a grade! To keep busy, I enjoy 19 (plus audited) class credit hours, as well as being involved in campus activities and clubs such as: Band of Beauties (a girls' Bible study/accountability group), Work Projects Ministry, my own Anderson homeless ministry, weekend CAB (campus activities board) events, Bible Studies, the dance program, 10:07 student worship service, Wednesday Night Girls group, and I plan on rushing the social club Lami Fidel. Anderson University has provided me incredible fellowship and opportunities and encourages us to take on other leadership rolls (one program I completed was fellows student leadership) as well as aspiring to start my own campus club "the Creative Truth" a club dedicated to Bible based fellowship, personal development, and service through the creative arts. At home I ride horses and give riding lessons, am a cook/waitress at an organic natural cafe, and hold a fashion retail position at a funky-hippie- went-country fashion store (my style). I enjoy being with friends and family, silliness, and creative projects. I am passionate about God, dance, horses, sunshine, nature, cooking organic food, fashion design, music, the arts, running around barefoot, climbing trees, and good coffee.

Name: Austin Kaufman

About Me: My name is Austin, but my friends call me AK. I am from a small town called Millersburg where most people are related to each other and half of the population is made up of livestock. Speaking of, I own a flock of sheep and have enjoyed raising animals all my life. During high school, I was heavily involved in the music program in which I was in show choir and musicals. Now, I am resolved to speaking the Truth for the duration of my life in whatever way God sees fit. My weird quirk is that I am an aspiring auctioneer and plan to do that on the side. I am engaged to a wonderful girl named Carissa who has the most fantastic brown eyes and a heart for Jesus that just makes me smile. And I think that's all :)

Name: Tommy Ranz

About Me: Hello, I am Tommy Ranz, a freshman here at Anderson University. I am currently majoring in Music Business, but could switch it to Political Science/Pre-Law. I have lived 95% of my life in Fishers, IN, so Anderson is basically the perfect distance away. I have been playing the drumset for 8 years, I love Mountain Dew, and Buccaneers football pretty much runs my life. That's me in a very tiny nutshell, but you can learn more about me and Anderson University by reading my blog. So do it! :D

Name: Molly Eagleson

About Me: It was never my plan to attend a small, private Christian university when I dreamt of my college experience. My freshman year I attended Indiana University in South Bend, studying journalism and photography. While it was a great school with lots to offer, I found myself visiting friends here at Anderson University almost every weekend, and every time I came here I fell more in love with it. I found a community of love and genuine connection and knew this was where I belonged. Being a transfer student, I can offer a unique perspective of my experiences here at AU. Now a psychology major, the things I've learned at AU have inspired me to eventually work in the area of sexual abuse counseling.
