Adult Student Experience

The Office of Engagement and Adult Student Experience is here to support students over the age of 25. We do this by providing each student with an Academic Coach, a full lounge, and access to a private office. We also want to leverage our campus relationships to empower you! So, before you reach out to any other office on campus, please give us a call and let us help you navigate your college experience. Our chief aim is to support you while you work hard to achieve your educational dreams. 
The Office of Engagement and Adult Student Experience also works hard to build community partnerships for the betterment of the city of Anderson, Anderson University, and our student community.
