From the very start, back in 1874, Andrews University has placed serious scholarship, quality research and a strong focus on practical Christianity first on the list of things we think are important about attendance at a Christian university. We started out small. Mr. Goodloe Bell, a teacher, started a tiny school with only 12 students in Battle Creek, Michigan. This was the birth of what we now know as Andrews University. Today, Andrews is the best-known Adventist educational institution in the world.
Andrews University, a distinctive Seventh-day Adventist institution, transforms its students by educating them to seek knowledge and affirm faith in order to change the world.
We are musicians, scientists, athletes, artists. We are professors, graduate students, pastors, and more, representing 90 countries. Put us together, and Andrews University is ranked #1 in the United States for ethnic diversity, according to U.S. News & World Report's "America's Best Colleges."
We offer 130 undergraduate and 90 graduate programs, making Andrews the only Adventist-affiliated school ranked as a national university. But we’re more than strong academics.
A Place for You
Students, faculty, and staff have plenty of service opportunities to make a difference globally, nationally, regionally, and locally. As a Christian school, our spiritual lives are at the center of everything we do with numerous prayer groups, worship services, and fellowship events on and off campus.
Nearly 70 active clubs - including cultural, departmental, fine arts, and more - offer diverse options for extra-curricular activities. Conveniently located between Chicago, Detroit, and Indianapolis, and just 20 minutes from the sunny beaches of Lake Michigan, there's plenty to explore.
