Campus Quality: Strong Moral Values – There is a balanced blend between the religous and the academic with training in moral and social responsiblity

1 College Senior

Scholarships: Aid the First Year, Then You're on Your Own – The school will give you aid, call it "guaranteed" but if you don't keep a 3.8 GPA, you will lose all your aid sophomore year. They use the aid to entice you to come to your school, but unless you're in the three percent of campus with a 3.8 or higher, you won't get s*** your second year.

1 College Senior

Campus Food: Same Thing Over and Over – The food itself isn't awful or anything, but after about a week, you will be sick of eating the same subpar food over and over and over... Also, the cafeteria isn't that nice.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Most of the facilities are very old and outdated. Some, such as the Howard Performing Arts Center, however, have recently been renovated making them very nice. All of the facilities are, however, inferior to that of nearby schools and similarly ranked schools.

1 College Sophomore

Academics: Not an Academic School – This school is an Adventist school. The professors are here because of their commitment to the Adventist Church and its theology, not because of their expertise.

Overall Experience: Great School – You can find everything you're looking for at Andrews...except meat. Friends, great education, great teachers, calm environment, and most importantly a relationship with God!

1 College Sophomore

Administration: Very Strict for Your Own Good. This school really cares about it's students because they want everyone to be accounted for every night. There is a curfew for every undergraduate student that varies in years. Dorms are not co-ed. No drinking, smoking, sex, foul language allowed. Basically anything bad is unacceptable in the school.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Differnt Dorms Different Quality – The Undergraduate girls dorm at AU (Lamson Hall) needs a lot of updating but it is livable, however the girls graduate dorm (Damazo Hall) is incredible because it is brand new. Meijer Hall, the undergraduate boys dorm is a nice dorm while the men's graduate dorm (Burman Hall) needs updating.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Diverse Students in Diverse Ways – Every student at Andrews University is different in every way, but you will surely make friends at this school. There are cliques here like the jocks, scientists, seminarians and what not but if you're open to anyone, there should not be a problem.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing such as the apartments look like they need a little updating, but do seem to be a safe place for older students/graduate students

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Calm, Spiritual Atmosphere and Strong Academics – Andrews University provides a spiritual environment while highly educating and preparing its students to prepare for the real working world.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: Finances Tend to Be a Nightmare – A lot of hoops have to be jumped in order to get the financial aspect of registration in order. I felt like the different departments in the administration building didn't communicate and I often had to go through the same process several times with different people before actually receiving the okay to continue with registration.

3 College Senior

Parking: Parking on campus can be sticky for students, whether living in the dorm or off campus. There are certain parking lots for dorm students only and some for campus students only. But the dorm students are often forced to walk a long way to class and there is not enough parking for off-campus students.

4 College Senior

Academics: Professors Encourage Scholarly Research – I'm at Andrews University and have been pleased to discover that professors are very flexible and open to students wishing to pursue a scholarly degree. My professors have excused me from class so that I could go to scholarly conventions and have encouraged me to work as an undergraduate research assistant for them so that I could get more research experience which has helped me decide what I want to do for a career.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I Love It! I think Andrews is an excellent school! Everyone is so friendly and there's always someone new to meet who's coming from a different part of the world. It's calm and peaceful and the scenery on campus is just amazing! I can focus on my studies a lot more and I always get help and support from my professors.

Drug Safety: Drugs Are Not Tolerated – Because this is a religiously based school, many people are far more spiritual and know better than to defile their bodies in such horrible ways. There may be a few cases where a student or group of students would go to a party or go get drunk somewhere, but they can easily be expelled if caught with any type of drug on them.

Health & Safety: Totally Safe – I can't say that I've ever not felt safe, but that's mainly because I'm always with a friend. Whenever I am not with anyone, I would probably still feel safe and know that I am protected. I do have to keep my dorm room locked. There have been many cases about theft. Not too happy about that.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My Experience – Andrews campus can get boring most of the time. The intramural sports make it more interesting and the clubs I'm invovled in. We get to go to banquets and talent show nights. But Andrews has awesome praise nights and worships. That is one thing it does not lack. the spiritual atmosphere is very comforting and encouraging.

4 College Freshman

Technology: Computer and Technology – Andrews University is fairly has a lot of available rooms with computers, since there is a small population of students, you can find computers in labs, art departments, and in dorm buildings. The printing can get annoying in dorms because there is only one printer available for students. But majority of the time students have there own computers and printers. Art projects may have to be printed from special printers but there should be more of those instead of two or three available for students in a particular class.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Peaceful and Relaxing – Berrien Springs is very peaceful and is very relaxing for people love open space and quiet areas. It's a small town with nice people and very little crime reports. Andrews University is the life of Berrien Springs and so many students and faculty live in this city.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Veggie Cops – Honestly I've never felt threatened at Andrews even though Benton Harbor, a city with quite a high murder rate, is only twenty minutes away. The "Veggie Cops" as we call our campus safety, do quite a lovely job when it comes to keeping us safe, they even offer rides if an individual feels uncomfortable walking across campus at night.

3 College Junior

Local Area: Not Much to Do, Unless You Have a Car! [It's Kinda in the Middle of Nowhere] – you have to drive at least 20+ minutes to do anything fun. the beach is 25ish minutes away, the closest mall is about a half hour away, and the school is located in a pretty small, quiet community. it's possible to have a social life and have fun...if you have a car!

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The Financial Aid is really good. They do everything they can possible to help you have a good Christian Education.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The parking is sometimes a pain because there are so many people who have cars because they life off-campus.

3 College Freshman

Technology: Wireless Access – The Wireless Access is pretty good but you will always have traffic with so many people using it and all. Overall its not bad and work can still be completed.
