Social & Service Clubs exist to enhance the quality of the social and spiritual life of the Anderson University community by providing opportunities for involvement in service, social, and spiritual activities for students. Social and service clubs have been in existence at AU for more than 75 years.

Women’s Clubs

Alacritas: Established in 2003 by a group of ladies who wanted to have a club based on the foundation of their love for God and one another, Alacritas means “zeal” in Latin, as well as fervor and devotion.

Camarada: A service based social and service club whose mission is to promote the interests of Anderson University by serving the Anderson community and to provide an opportunity for women to unite, have Christian fellowship with one another, to give ourselves in service to others, and to challenge each other to grow in the Lord while striving to set a Christ-like example within the campus, community, and abroad.

Leona: The purpose of Leona is to live in community with our brothers and sisters of The Lord, while cultivating a life in common and striving to be intentional with each other and our relationship with the Lord. We desire to be servant leaders on our campus and abroad through service, intentionality, and love.


Men’s Clubs

Adelphi: Adelphi’s mission is to be an apostolic brotherhood, whose goals are to humbly foster Christ-like servitude and to accept, love, and cherish all.

Avanti Boosters: We are a Men’s Service and Social Club at Anderson University. We are the oldest of all clubs on AU’s campus, with 75 years of tradition on our shoulders! Our 75 years of rich tradition and history have shaped and helped define the Anderson campus into what it is today.

Dativus: Established in 1971 at Anderson College, Dativus was created for the purpose of Christian servanthood and fellowship both within the community and abroad. Our mission is to unite as brothers and uplift each member, as well as the campus, in the name of the Lord.

Phi Alpha Kappa: Our purpose is to promote, develop, and strengthen cultural awareness across the campus as well as the local community. By hosting events and programs, we will attempt to educate the Anderson campus and community on diverse cultures, backgrounds, and perspectives. It is our goal to establish an organization for young men to develop a healthy and strong sense of identity and purpose that will have a direct impact on our campus society and the world.
