September 10, 2018

Anderson University this year continued rising up the ranks of U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Colleges” list, coming in at No. 65 among regional universities in the South in rankings released today.

Whitaker. “We’re pleased that U.S. News & World Report continues to recognize the affordable, entrepreneurial and innovative environment that Anderson University’s students enjoy, and we look forward to even better things in the years to come.” 

In addition to Anderson’s place among the best universities in the region, U.S. News & World Report named AU as the No. 16 “Most Innovative” school and No. 36 on the list of “Best Value” schools.
