The Four Hallmarks of Campus & Student Life

Return to: Student Handbook 2021-2022  

Andrews University is a Christian community where Christ is celebrated and reflected in the academic, social, physical and spiritual experiences of its members. As a Seventh-day Adventist institution, we seek to integrate faith, learning and living, while each of us matures in our relationships with God and each other.

By enrolling in classes on the main campus of Andrews University, students choose to be part of this uniquely Christian atmosphere, set apart by four hallmarks.

  1. A Faith-Based University. Andrews is a Seventh-day Adventist university with a unique, global perspective. We welcome students of all faiths and backgrounds, inviting them into a life of hope and wholeness. See A Faith-Based University  .
  2. A Healthy Lifestyle. Faculty, staff and students agree to uphold the community’s shared commitment to a healthy lifestyle guided by the principles of honesty, modesty, sexual purity, respect for others, healthful living and safety. See A Healthy Lifestyle  .
  3. A Residential Campus. Graduate and undergraduate students benefit from living and learning together on campus, either in one of our residence halls or the University apartments. Undergraduates under the age of 22 (unless married or staying with an approved family member or Andrews employee) agree to live in a residence hall and participate in a meal plan at the University’s vegetarian cafeteria. See A Residential Campus  .
  4. A Whole-Person Approach. Students engage in faith and learning outside the classroom as part of a comprehensive educational experience, developing skills and dispositions that complement their academic degrees. Undergraduate students and Seminary students agree (and all graduate students are encouraged) to participate in a minimum number of co-curricular experiences each semester. See A Whole-Person Approach  .
