Hi Parents. It's Homecoming Week . . . my favorite time of year on the Anderson campus! I love the luminaries on Friday night, the Street Fair on Saturday morning, the football game on Saturday afternoon, and seeing so many people come back to the place that meant so much to them.
The students, faculty, and staff anticipate the fun of our big Homecoming weekend and look forward to connecting with alumni and old friends. The campus is full of Raven Spirit as students are preparing for the dorm and apartment decorating contest, and faculty and staff are busy getting ready for the departmental decorating contest, as well. The Student Alumni Association has done a great job decorating both the Haven and the Marketplace so students feel the Homecoming excitement every day while they eat.
This year, Family Weekend has been combined with Homecoming, so this would be a great time to visit your child or children here on campus. Check out possible activities you might enjoy while spending time with your student at anderson.edu/studentlife/family/schedule.html.
Also, you'll find the full list of Homecoming activities at anderson.edu/homecoming
I hope you can join in on the fun!
Blessings to all parents who love their children.

Every year Anderson University has a Spiritual Emphasis Week to focus on spiritual growth and discovery here on campus. This year Spiritual Emphasis Week will take place October 9-11.
Laurie Polich-Short will be speaking at the 2012 SEW. Laurie is a speaker, author, and associate pastor of Ocean Hills Covenant Church. To read her bio and learn more about Laurie, visit her website here.
Parents, please make a commitment to pray for our campus at least once during Spiritual Emphasis Week. Pray for the speaker and her messages, the faculty and staff that they understand how important their work is in shaping the lives of our students, and not only for your child or children, but for all students at Anderson University, that they grow spiritually while they seek academic discovery here at AU.
Anderson University strives to offer excellent programs and facilities to enhance your student's learning experience and provide opportunities for growth in their desired fields of interest. I'd like to make you aware of just a few of those opportunities available at AU.
This past weekend was a very busy time on our campus and included an important literary festival
and a wonderful dedication of a new facility
here on the AU campus. Many of our students benefited from or will benefit from these wonderful events and facilities. Your child may be one of these students.
Music students of all kinds are thrilled with the newly dedicated York Performance Hall and Galleries
, which is now available for their use. This building will allow for many types of musical events such as student recitals, but will also bring world-renowned musicians and performers to our campus for our students to enjoy and learn from. Please read about this exciting new facility and all it has to offer here.
