An education at Andrews University in Michigan helps students to become well-rounded individuals who strive to do their best. They succeed not just for themselves, but for the glory of God. That may mean doing well academically, building good relationships with others, or strengthening your faith more each day.
As an Andrews University student, you'll join one of the most culturally diverse student bodies in the nation. There are nearly 3,600 students from 100 countries around the world. This means that you'll find plenty of students who share your interest in academics and a Seventh-day Adventist Christian worldview with life beyond the classroom. You will also find plenty of opportunities to break out and try something new. In making three vital connections – mental, spiritual and social – Andrews University students are challenged to: Seek Knowledge, Affirm Faith and Change the World.
Seek Knowledge: At a small Christian institution, opportunities to find exactly what you're looking for are endless. By connecting with professors and fellow students, you'll benefit from the enhanced academic atmosphere offered by Andrews University in Southwest Michigan. The highly qualified faculty and staff provide personal attention as you work toward one of the more than 180 educational programs offered. Knowledge is passed on to you, not only through textbooks and lectures, but also through real-world relationships with professors and peers.
Affirm Faith: It's more than feeling. We'd like to help make faith a tangible part of your life. At Andrews University, you'll connect with an accepting and supportive Christian community that nurtures the heart as well as the mind – within and beyond the classroom. Opportunities to strengthen your faith range from independent small group programs and student-led ministries and outreach, to worship at Pioneer Memorial Church or one of the 30 other Adventist churches in the area, to the endless other local and worldwide mission and service projects available.
Change the World: Sure, it sounds like a pretty tall order, but our graduates – armed with strong academic preparation and spiritually vibrant experiences and training – respond to and help change the world. You'll be ready to impact the world with an active and life-changing Christianity.
