11 Students rated Washington Adventist University
It is an amazing school for someone who wants the ability to learn and have fun in an environment conducive to growth in many ways. The professors are understanding and open to visits and tutoring sessions at any time. It is a relatively small campus and eventually, everyone knows everyone or at least knows someone that knows everyone, the people are very welcoming and the paraphernalia is to die for.
I loved how they kept worrying about you if you are safe and sound.
My overall opinion of my school is , it’s very open there are no secrets. My school does a great job with keeping me updated with every event happening in and outside of classes. I believe everything we can achieve is better to work together and I stick by that rule.
Washington Adventist university is a great school. When i first came to the school to register for classes, i was not happy as this was not my dream school and a school close to home. Today, i am a senior and my four years in this school has been appreciable and remarkable. A lot of work still need to be done, but they got you covered in all aspect, especially spiritually.

As a high school senior I wouldve told myself to think throughly as to what i want to make of myself as far as a career goes. I started out as a bio major because of what everyone else wanted me to be. I shouldnt be trying to please others with my career choice. I wouldve told myself to think for myself and not for others.
The best aspect of Columbia Union College is it's location. The campus is wonderful but you rarely want to spend all your time stuck on campus. Columbia Union College is located next to popular eateries and is only minutes from the nation's capitol.
Since attending Washington Adventist University, there have been plenty of uniqueness going around campus that captivated my attention and held unto it, which its never letting go. For starters, the diversity is pretty grand, with different cultures and backgrounds. Secondly, I love the fact that it's so spirited and everyone can stop and say a prayer to the man upstairs without being judged in any way, or how. That feeling of freedom is so rare and unique nowadays, that whenever we have a problem, whether its good nor bad, its a blessing to know that we can do that.
Anyone who wants to pursue more than just an education, but a stronger connection with God should attend this school.
The music, business. and adult evening program is very good at the school. Also the nursing and respiratory care program is quite good. The school's baseball team id Division I and they have won a few championships.
My school is religious.
I don't really associate with my classmates.
I wish I had known about all the rules regarding worship in the dorm and the Wednesday convocations. Not being religious, it was a shock coming in and finding out I had to do all those things.
A person who is ready not to transform into a adult shouldn't atttend this school.
The most frustrationg thing about my school would the work loads.
The worst thing about my school is the dormitories they need to rebuild them, we have no elevators at the girls dorm and its difficult to carry heavy loads to the 3rd floor 24/7. we have a heating system that is controlled so when the weather changes there are times in where the heat is still on and it should have been changed to AC and its frustrating , they need to upgrade.
The students on campus are friendly, the area is convenient, and the gymnastic team is outstanding.
During my first year, the most popular activities had to be the sports games. Soccer, Basketball, and Volleyball were the three sports that many people supported wholeheartedly. I advocated for soccer, because I love cheering for my team. People who did not even attend the school still found time to make it over and support their friends and family, which is something that I admire.
There are also worship groups that meet at different times during the day or night and discuss Christ and what we, as students, can do to carry out his work.
My school is a good one. There isn't much to do around the campus or in Takoma Park itself. There's more civilization and stores in Silver Spring.
Also, there isn't a large variety of food for lunch or dinner. Yes, it is a Christian college, but it is obvious that Christians are not the only ones attending the school. All they serve is vegetarian and vegan food (there are eggs, but not fish or meat). The "meat" they do have is fake, so that's a negative. However, the breakfasts have more of a wide variety because it has fruit, pastries, waffles/pancakes/French toast sticks, etc.
Because it is an Adventist school, there is not much to do on the Sabbath (Saturday) except prayer and dedicating time to God. Men are not allowed to go in the girls' dorm room (to move out any furniture) and cleaning and partying is frowned upon before sunset.
Chapel is also mandatory, even for those who are not Christian. It happens every Wednesday, and we must receive a certain amount of Worship credits depending on our year. If we don't, we must pay a fine.
Overall, I do like my school, but there could be some adjustments to make everyone one comfortable and not only a few. The good thing is that those in charge do take in consideration of our complaints.
