Hello Parents! One year ago, I was where you are now . . . getting ready to send my child off to Anderson University. I realize I might have had an advantage since I know this campus well and the people who would be teaching, nurturing, and guiding my son, Levi. I already felt comfortable with him being at AU, and, of course, it didn't hurt to know that I might even get to see him from time to time. I didn't seek him out, though . . . I let him come to me. He stopped by my office periodically, sometimes when he needed something and sometimes when he was nearby and just wanted to say, "Hi."
Although most of you will not have that type of advantage, I do hope you will all feel comfortable with your child's choice to attend Anderson University. I think it's a great place to learn and grow, and I am passionate about AU and its mission "to educate for a life of faith and service in the church and society."
This summer I will be communicating with you a few times as you and your child prepare for this new chapter in your lives. For now, I'd like to point out two important things as you make your preparations. First, be sure to utilize all the information you will receive in a few day from Student Life in the "News for New Students" newsletter being sent to your child.
You'll find info about what to take to college, what you need to know from ITS (our computer gurus), important contact info, what happens at orientation, and much, much more.
