No matter where you are in your journey, the Anderson University Alumni Office is here to help you stay in touch with your fellow Ravens, make exciting new connections, and grow personally and professionally.
“I have had a lot of family who attended here. My parents met here, my grandparents met here, my aunts and uncles on both sides of my family have all gone here. So naturally, I tried to be my own person and not come here. But when I visited, I just fell in love with the campus and felt like the community and the lifestyle expectations were great. And to just think about all the people who have contributed to my life in getting here, staying here, and getting the most out of it. It’s a thing that I can never pay back, because so many people I’ve never met have supported me with gifts and scholarships. A lot of people believe that AU is a special place, that it’s worth keeping and worth preserving.”
