In celebration of our convocation 2023, and the opportunity for us to finally be together and celebrate in person after three years, we asked our graduates to share their Anderson College experience.
Asking, “How has Anderson College changed your life?” prompted over a hundred submissions … this is one of those extraordinary student stories.
We hope this reflection moves you, as it has our Anderson family, and inspires you to ever embrace the career and life you imagine and, truly, deserve.
My name is Agatha. As someone who attended Anderson, I can confidently say that it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The campus is beautiful, the faculty are knowledgeable and supportive, and the opportunities for growth and development are endless.
“Whether it was my instructors, classmates, or the staff, I always felt like I was part of a supportive community that wanted me to succeed.”
One of the things that made my time at Anderson so special was the relationships that I formed while there. From my first day, I felt welcomed by students and staff. Whether it was my instructors, classmates, or the staff, I always felt like I was part of a supportive community that wanted me to succeed. A deep contrast from the systems in other postsecondary schools where you are expected to guide yourself and do the majority of everything on your own, with no learning curve; they just place you and expect you to know what to do and where to go. I’m glad that wasn’t the case with Anderson at all. They catered to me on an individual level and acknowledged me as a person, and not just one of many students.
In essence, I appreciate how Anderson prioritizes relationship-building in its academic and professional programs. The faculty was always available, which helped me feel more engaged with my coursework and better prepared for life after graduation.
“Anderson offered a challenging curriculum, that enriched me nonetheless and improved skills that I didn’t even know could be further improved.”
In terms of academics, Anderson offered a challenging curriculum, that enriched me nonetheless and improved skills that I didn’t even know could be further improved. The curriculum was so fine-tuned and prepared me for my chosen career path. I was able to explore a wide range of subjects and develop a broad skillset that has served me well in my professional life.
“Perhaps the most important thing I took away from my time at Anderson, was the importance of building new relationships.”
Perhaps the most important thing I took away from my time at Anderson was the importance of building new relationships. Whether it was with fellow students, instructors, or professionals in my field, I learned that making new connections is essential to success in any area of life. By forming new relationships, we gained access to new opportunities, ideas, and perspectives to help us grow and develop in ways we never thought possible.
In conclusion, I would highly recommend Anderson College to anyone who is looking for a high-quality college experience that prioritizes relationships and personal growth. From the courteous faculty to the knowledge-filled curriculums and the supportive community, Anderson has everything you need to succeed in your academic and professional pursuits.
