Anderson University Parent Connection

Wow, It's April Already!   

Greetings, Parents!

I can't believe how quickly we're coming up on the end of this school year. For those parents of Juniors who are planning to rent a house or apartment next year, or for those parents who have a student staying in Anderson for the summer who might be renting or subletting an apartment, you and your student might find the information in the Parent Resources section below very helpful. Good Luck!


Secondly, the Director of Student Financial Services, Ken Nieman, has asked me to forward this information to you concerning the University's Policy of Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). It's important to know that there is an appeal process, and all students who find themselves in the position of being denied eligibility for financial aid are encouraged to appeal. Please read this reminder information from Ken Nieman for the full story.

And . . . finally, for those parents who are unaware of our SIFE program (Students in Free Enterprise), you might enjoy learning about a great opportunity for your student, whether they're a business major or not. Recently, our SIFE students participated in a regional competition. The following story will tell you all about that and the SIFE program.

There are so many ways for your child to get involved in great programs, activities, and ministries at AU. I'll do my best to keep you informed about the many opportunities your student has to learn, grow, and make a difference in their world.

Blessings to all parents who love their children.

Anderson University SIFE Team Competes in Regional Competition

The Anderson University SIFE (Students In Free Enterprise) team competed this week at the Cincinnati, Ohio SIFE USA Regional Competition.The event was one of eleven SIFE USA Regional Competitions being held across the United States in March and April.


"The presentation team was fully prepared for the competition and very excited for the opportunity to represent Anderson University's Fall's School of Business," noted Vice President of Competition, Kurtis Dickerson.


AU SIFE is one of nearly 600 SIFE programs in the United States. Participating students use business concepts to develop community outreach projects that improve the quality of life and standard of living for people in need. During this academic year, the AU SIFE team organized nine projects in the Anderson and surrounding communities, including Cheat Your Neighbor Cheat Yourself, which focused on teaching elementary school kids the importance of honesty in the classroom and in life. This project is aimed at instilling ethics and honesty at a young age, creating respectable citizens in the community.

With summer approaching, many students staying in Anderson for the summer, as well as current Juniors, are starting to look f0r rental houses or apartments around campus. For many, this is the first time they will encounter a lease, a landlord, and the responsibilities that go along with renting. Check out the links below for valuable advice and information to guide your child in this process:
