Berrien Springs Reviews

Berrien Springs is a small town which gives you the opportunity to build community with those around. However, people from all over the world come to this location for the Andrews University Theological Seminary. Thus, the diversity of people is great. There are local small business. Homes are affordable. In order to find something to do or find a good meal to go out to, one must drive a long ways. Nonetheless, 30 minutes out has nice towns and beaches. Bigger cities such as Chicago, IL or Grand Rapids, MI are only about an hour and a half drive away.

I used to live in big cities and when I moved to Berrien Springs-MI in 2012, I was bored. I didn't know people, there's not many stores, at night everywhere is dark and quiet, so I named the place Bored Springs!!! But after a year I started to feel comfortable, know people and talk to people as my own family!!! I thought this city is so different, people care about each other, they know me and my family and we enjoy the same lifestyle!!! We are blessed because there is a university offering so many things to do!!! We have education, sports, music, spiritual support, a very intense social life and everything is available in the same place without traffic, violence, noise and pollution!!! I have to say I'm passionate about this piece of heaven!!! Now, for me Berrien Springs is very calm, peaceful and a friendly place to live and raise kids!!! The best place ever!!!
Berrien Springs is a small university town that may not seem like much at first glance. What makes this area really unique is the people. It is in a Seventh-Day Adventist community, so the people here are more conscious of their actions. There is not much to offer in terms of city life, but there are many things to do, from going to the beach to visiting the small towns around here. If you want a nice quiet hide away, this is a place to visit.
