3 College Junior

Weather: Growing up in Michigan, i enjoy the extremes from below zero in winter and 4 feet of snow to 95 in the summer. You get a little bit of both worlds. But it seems to me that most of the students, especially one from out of state, hate and complain about the weather ALOT.

2 College Junior

Nightlife: The adventist youth think they know how to party.. but they can't compare to any real University. They do try though, i'll give them a C for trying. After about 9 o'clock everything starts slowing down. By 11 o'clock EVERYTHING IS CLOSED! Curfew anyone? I enjoy going to other schools such as WMU and Notre Dame to have fun at night. I of course end up getting a few AWOL's for not being in my bed by midnight though.

1 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Very Smalltown, Not Much Beyond That – It's a small town in the middle of nowhere. Isolated. One word to describe the people in "town" would be"redneck", but i guess i wouldn't go that far. We do have a Hallmark Card Store though!! haha. The University is in correlation with the county police department, so they'd rather deal with our problems externally than handle problems themselves.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Doesn't Really Exist – The very few Fraternities and Sororities that exist have to be secretive and underground because the university doesn't approve of fun. They do exist, but let's keep that a secret :]

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I Don't Live Off Campus but a Few Friends Do – Living off campus seems to be the best option, only because you can live your life without being tied down and hit over the head with the conservative morality of the church. Having your own apartment allows for no curfew, having members of the opposite sex come over to hang out, and a few other pros. I am not immediately aware of the cost, but i think that it is reasonable, probably very much so in comparison to the dormitories.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: Student Life – Student life at Andrews University varies from person to person. But from my experience so far, most of Student Life at Andrews revolves around the Student Center or the vast amount of worship opportunities and activities going on. It is a great place to better your relationship with God, if that obviously is your main focus. I have met many great individuals.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: Getting Financial Advisors to Do Anything Is a Hassle – Beware of random fees that show up on your account. I have had to argue a fee every month. Also, I have an employee discount, which they try to argue only applies to certain classes. I still have to argue that one.
I suggest keeping an eye on your account and if there is anything you don't understand, take the bill in and talk to your adviser and the assistant manager about it. Half the time, your adviser has no clue what that charge is on your bill.

2 College Senior

Computers: Well i attend an affiliate of Andrews University in Trinidad named the University of the Southern Caribbean. The computer labs here often have classes being conducted in them, so only in the night you may be able to find a vacant pc.

1 College Junior

Academics: Nothing Much for My Major – My major is English for editing, and Andrews has no classes whatsoever for that, or no official major either, so I am put in the English with "concentration of writing" category. The classes are not nearly long enough, so when you just begin to learn something, the class is over. The workload is really hard to keep up with sometimes when you're working a part time job as well, especially in the Honors program. There aren't any internship or job opportunities around here; I've had to make my own connections to get opportunities.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Variety to Choose from – At Andrews the campus is very diverse having students from all over the continental United States and the world. The Guys and Girls situation at Andrews tends to be as diverse as the campus' nationalities; there are all different types of personalities. But for the most part the people on campus are generally attractive.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Nice, but Needs Improvement – The campus dining situation is nice, but could use improvement. The structure was recently remodeled, and has a state of the art design and appearance. However the food that is offered lacks variety and tends to be repetitive.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: What Makes My School Unique – Andrews University Is a very diversed institution when it comes to race. Most of the students there share the same fiath (Seventh day adventist). This school is unique becuase they are a private institution therefore they have rules that other school will not have like 11oclock curfew for freshman.

3 College Junior

Computers: Wireless Access – For some reason the wireless always seem to have a problem during the most importantant times of the semester when ou need to write papers around midterms. When i can;t get wireless connections in my room in obligated to go wait in lines in the computer lab or i can choose to come around 4am when all the students are sleeping.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: It's average for off campus dining. There are a couple fast food places, McDonald's, Taco Bell and Subway. There is a chicken place, a couple oriental places, and one restaurant on the other side of town. Other than that, you're going to have to drive a good ten to twenty minutes for anything else.

1 College Junior

Campus Strictness: They Are Ridiculous – Andrews is extremely nosy into your personal affairs. You have to live on campus, or with your parents until you are 22. You have to sign an agreement saying that you will be an upstanding religious member, even if you don't attend church. Also, to get a parking permit, you have to basically go through all the measures you would at a police station with their campus safety people. Also, if you do anything someone doesn't like, they can and will just put a "fine" on your account, and you have to pay it, or you won't graduate.

1 College Junior

Athletics: There Are No Sports – Andrews believes that there shouldn't be competition, that it's bad, so they really don't have sports. I think the only sport they might have is soccer.

3 College Junior

Weather: You get all the seasons at Andrews. It snows and rains a lot, so I suggest investing in a good pair of boots and an umbrella. Even though it snows a lot, classes hardly get cancelled. During the beginning of the school year, the weather is very nice. People tend to hang-out outside and enjoy the weather.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Slim Pickings – There are very few restaurants nearby campus. The Berrien Springs area has fast food restaurants which include: McDonalds, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut. I suggest spending a weekend in Chicago. If that's not possible, go to the neighboring towns such as Niles and enjoy Thai food. The prices are cheap and have good portions.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Reasonable Apartments – Apartments are not difficult to come by. They are well equipped. The landlords really look out and cater for students.

3 Recent Alumnus

Parking: most of the parking lots are assigned and cars have to be registered for extended parking.

Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: Hardly Any of Such – Since the school is a christian private school, there is very little use of drugs or alchohol and whatever little there may be is done in hiding.

3 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: Friendly People – guys and girls at andrews are pretty friendly, but will usually wait for you to come out first. very few people go out of their way to make the first approach but after you get to know them they are cool people.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's a Lot of Fun and Easy to Be Productive – Since it is a Christan college a lot of the students already have something in common. It is a lot easier to get to meet new people because of the diversity and number of students on campus. I would choose this school again because it is close to home, has a lot of ways to get involved, and got a lot of things done

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Berrien Springs, MI – Andrew's University is located in Berrien Sprins, Mi. It is a small town but has very nice and caring individuals. It has all the necessary stores that a college student or anyone else may need. It is only about 30 minutes away from South Bend, IN.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: The Library and Campus Activities Are Productive – The library on campus has a number of research material and quiet places to study where you can get your work done. There are always campus activities going on. There are many ways to get involved to help on and off campus.
