18 Students rated Andrews University
it's not bad. could be better. They need to actually train advisors so students don't get messed up last minute because the people who are told they can help are just as clueless. Some older buildings need a restoration period but haven't been worked on yet. the culture of saving public face needs to be looked into closer. other than that it's pretty good.
Great school but tuition and cost of attendance can be a little high. Good facilities with flexible hours and resources available for students, great security but accommodation can be limited and competitive. All in all, the education provided is worth it.
If you are looking for a college where you will be truly valued as an individual, then Andrews University is the place for you! The faculty treats students like family, which is extremely helpful for those who aren't close to home. You'll have no problem finding/making friends, because everyone is so friendly. Even better, Andrews University is nationally ranked as the second most diverse campus in the United States!
Andrews University is a small private university that does not really change. It's hard to make big changes around campus because the process is difficult. Everything is not catered towards what the student body wants or needs and so it can be rather difficult at times. It seems like there is no connection between administration and students. The classroom sizes are quite nice, the teacher to student ratio is small and light making interpersonal relationships with Professors doable.

There are two main things that I regret from my college experience. First, I wish I had figured out what degree I wanted from school before I went there. Doing more research and being more active in my plans for college would have saved me a lot of headache and money. In retrospect, I realize that assuming I would figure things out as I went was not the best idea. Having a plan would have made the past few years a lot easier. Also, I would advise a new college student to get involved as much as possible. Meet people and do things the first few years of school. Don't be afraid to get out of your comfort zone. I now realize that I missed out on a lot of opportunities and learning experiences because I didn't take enough chances. It doesn't have to be anything huge, just go to that party even though you don't really know anyone there. Try out for that club team or run for an office if that is what you want. In a few words, my advice is to take control of your life instead of just letting life happen.
My classmates are studious and eager to get good grades.
The teachers really care about their students and want them to succeed. They make themselves available to help students to make sure everyone can succeed in their classes.
It is very diverse and multicultural
My school is best known for its cultural and international diversity. As a religious school, we are also known for our dedication to christ.
The best thing about this school is that kids genuinely get a Christian education, the administration really puts emphasis on living a Christian life, while yet placing a high standard on academic education.
One thing I would change about the school or add to the school rather would be a career services department, they really need to bridge the gap between the school aspect and the real world but I think overall location really hinders this aspect of the school.
The way people react when they have heard I've been to this school really depends on the individual, if it is someone from Adventist circles, you are looked on with high regard because the school is after all the flagship institution of Seventh-Day Adventist education, however people who are not from Adventist circles may not have heard of Andrews but this too can be due to location seeing that I've moved to another state.
I spent most of my time on campus in the dormitory and yes for the most part Andrews is located in a college town. There is a lot of school pride; Andrews is the type of school that even after people have graduated they still find their way back at the school because regardless of what anyone says (mostly about the weather) it's definitely a place people want to be because of the diversity and the many people you meet from all over the world.
One experience I'll always remember is graduating from Andrews and students mostly complain about the weather because it's cold but most people tend to get used to it.
Anyone is welcomed and accepted here and everyone will fit right in.
What i wanted to do for a major.
The professors do know your name and for the most part I have met really professional, helpful professors. My favorite class probably was Intro to Web Design, my least favorite class was Business Finance. Students study often, there's lot's to do and little time. Class participation is common and sometimes if not most times factors into your grade. Students do have intellectual discussions outside of class especially students who are into more practical fields of study. Students are competitive, it's only natural. The most unique class I've taken was Entrepreneurship, which is a business class where we were actually given some weeks to come up with a business, make money and split the profits among group members. My major/department was the School of Business and no I did not spend time with professors outside of class but I definitely greeted them in the halls. The schools academic requirements are of a very high standard, it's not easy you definitely have to put in the time and effort to achieve good grades. I believe it is the intention of the school to get you a job but sadly I don't think enough is done internally with helping students acquire jobs, yes there are some career fairs but more needs to be done, overall the school needs a solid career services department.
Christians as andrews is a very chrisitan school. I love my department but i'm not a christian and it can be a pain with required worships and strict rules.
I brag about our campus. Our campus is very well put together. All of our buildings are designed very nicely. The landscaping is also very nice.
I would say that its diversity and faculty engagement causes this school to stand out, but the thing that truly separates it from other schools is its spiritual focus.
Andrews University carries a record of being a very accepting school. It is one of the most diverse schools in the country. This college caters to the needs of several students from all races and ethnicities. Andrews is also a Christian University and as such students are accepted and appreciated. I have noticed that students in the school are able to make friends easily and that there are no real stereotypes. However, people do tend to hang out with peers that are in their same major. Yet, even in that case there are several interactions from people who are not in the same major; people are truly friendly on this campus.
The location can be frustrating, but you learn to live with it. It is cold and snowing most of the school year and the closest big city is 10-15 min. away.
Bible study and the worship of our Creator.
My sister went to Andrews University, and when I went there to visit her, I fell in love with it immediately. I'd probably say that the most important thing about a college is the way that you feel about it. Even if most other things are in place, but you don't feel comfortable, you should take some time to consider your choice. I remember going to visit Southern Adventist University, sister school to Andrews, for a weekend. From arrival to departure, my friends showed me all the things that made their school marvelous. At the end of the weekend, I understood why they liked their school so much. But upon putting one foot on Andrews campus after my weekend away, I understood why I LOVED my school. Because every time I go there, I remember my friends, my classes, my major, my job, saturday nights, basketball, spiritual life, outreach, and many more things. THAT is why I attend Andrews University.
One word: VEGETARIAN! So get used to the salad bar... You end up loving it! Haha!
Depends on the kind of person you are some people get work done in the library, some in their dorm rooms, they are also quiet zones in some lobbies where people get work done.
International Food Fair day, lots of food from all over the world.
