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.

I am a first year student in the Theological Seminary here. Thus far I can that the quality of education received is excellent. The majority of the professors are extremely friendly and are available to help students outside of the classroom. I've noticed the willingness of many of them to even mentor students. The workload given can sometimes seem overwhelming but if you ensure that you remain organized and do not procrastinate you will be fine. There were a few glitches in the registration process this semester so many people had to do manual registration. This made registration a painful process for me. But other than that, this is a great program!

As far as diversity goes, this school excels. There are plenty of cultural clubs on campus to help connect people from any and every cultural background. Academics here are held at very high standards, which was my main reason for choosing this school. There's a pretty hefty homework load (at least for me and my friends) and Honors is something really respected. However, the administration is very one sided and likes to shun opinions that don't agree. The school newspaper that's supposed to be "by students, for students" is heavily censored and regulated. There's not much to do in free time on-campus or off-campus. Location is not very pleasant. Campus smells like cow feces 75% of the year, like unbearable sometimes. Farm should be downwind and further from main campus. Food is healthy and pretty great IMO. This school is very much for the generic Adventist academy student however. Many students live sheltered lives and are pampered because of their history in the church, while newcomers are kind of overlooked or seen differently. Many rules seem very unfair or unnecessary for students who are supposed to be ADULTS. We aren't treated as adults, we are treated like academy students who ( for example) need to be in by 11pm. As a result of not being treated like adults, some students are very immature and act like middle-schoolers. Dating is a very weird time at this school. Don't get me wrong, I think this is a decent school, however, its administration and policies are not for me and my learning style, and it is a tad bit expensive for the experience.
