I have only been to Andrews for a year so far and I absolutely love it here! I have not visited many other colleges before so I am not going to say that this is the best one, however I am going to say that it is a great school. The atmosphere is nice, the campus is beautiful, and there are many things to do on campus. The facilities are all very nice, modern, and clean, and there is almost always something to do on campus. I was actually faced with the opportunity to transfer to another school that would be closer to home, but I just couldn't bring myself to doing it because this school did not compare to Andrews.
Another thing about Andrews is that it is very diverse--that is one of the major things that I enjoy the most. I have many friends from the united states, Brazil, Rwanda, Kenya, China, Russia and many other people. This school is absolutely great!
Review Andrews University
Andrews University is a predominantly Seventh-Day Adventist institution; it has a large emphasis on spiritual growth, though certainly in concert with academic growth. The professors teach a variety of viewpoints alongside critical thinking skills; they do not tell you what to believe, but let you decide it for yourself. Definitely go through the Honors program! It's amazing.
Andrews University is the flagship university for the Seventh Day Adventist Church, according to most sources. Therefore, it is automatically implied that there is a heavy emphasis on adherence to the fundamental beliefs of the SDA Church. This is not necessarily a bad thing, especially if you wish to establish your career in the church. The Christian bias is evident at this university, and although they accept people of any background, it is rather uncomfortable for those people to make themselves at home. In terms of education, the student body here can be described as more spiritually rather than academically inclined.
