Andrews University

In our exploring the Southwest corner of Michigan, we came accross Andrews University which was founded in 1874 in Battle Creek and moved to Berrien Springs in 1901. The 1600 acre campus is only 12 miles from Lake Michigan and serves about 3400 students (1800 undergraduate). About a third of the student population is international representing 98 different countries. This Adventist Christian University is named after John Nevins Andrews (1829-1883), the biggest thinker in the Adventist church. The university motto is "Seek Knowledge, Affirm Faith, Change the World".
