About Andrews University/Dayton
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. Bell, a teacher, started a tiny school with only twelve 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.

At Andrews we are serious about giving you choices. We offer options in undergraduate, graduate and doctoral studies. If you feel like spending a year abroad, you can choose from an impressive range of opportunities at Andrews affiliate schools or service posts around the globe. We are real people at Andrews. Whatever it is you choose to do here, we aim to make sure that you achieve that balance between theory and practice, and that you experience growth on your personal spiritual journey.

We are named after John Nevins Andrews (1829-1883), the biggest thinker in the 19th century Adventist Church. He was also the first sponsored missionary that the Church sent overseas. J.N. Andrews’ example of careful thought and compassionate action in Christian life is something that we have taken to heart. Our motto is "Seek knowledge. Affirm faith. Change the world."

Students from across the United States and the globe are attracted to Andrews because of what we stand for and what we offer. U.S. News and World Report says that Andrews is one of the most culturally diverse universities in the nation.

The roots of Andrews University date back to a little 19th century school of 12 students, one of which was the breakfast-cereal-genius-to-be John Harvey Kellogg. Through the leadership of a teacher, Goodloe Harper Bell, the Battle Creek Michigan-based school expanded quickly and, in 1874, took the name, Battle Creek College. By 1901, the school's administrators had decided to experiment with a non-classical concept for education that fused traditional academia with a practical approach to learning. For this experiment, school leaders felt that a new location was needed, away from the moral and ecological pollution of the city. Eighteen thousand dollars bought a 272-acre piece of land in Berrien Springs, Mich. The "experiment" packed into 16 box cars and traveled from Battle Creek to a new home nestled in gentle hills and farming fields.

With a new location came a new name, Emmanuel Missionary College (EMC). There was much work to be done as the new school had no buildings. For the 1901-1902 school year, the college rented a barn, the former Berrien County courthouse, an office building, a jail and a sheriff's residence to serve as temporary school buildings. Construction of the new school started almost immediately. All buildings were built from wood as brick was perceived to be too permanent for those expecting the imminent return of Jesus. Early buildings were built almost entirely by students.

Faculty also became involved with helping to get things underway in Berrien Springs. EMC's first president, E.A. Sutherland, felt inspired to plant a long row of Norway spruce trees to help landscape the new school. The tall row of trees stands proud today, over a hundred years later, a testimony to the hands-on attitude of our school's pioneers.

As EMC began to establish itself in the community, students and faculty developed a deep interest in overseas missionary work. By the 1920s, mission fervor had become one of the defining features of the Andrews experience. Despite the Depression of the 1930s, the Andrews leadership was successful as they worked to arrange accreditation for the institution. Amazingly, during the difficult war years of the 1940s, the college was able to obtain the materials and permission to build a new administration building, Nethery Hall, now home to the College of Arts & Sciences.

Momentum was growing and in 1959 Washington D.C.-based Potomac University moved to Berrien Springs and merged with EMC, bringing with it a School of Graduate Studies and the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary. The combined institutions were chartered as Andrews University the very next year, establishing a leader in higher education for the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

In 1974, the undergraduate division of Andrews was organized into two colleges—the College of Arts & Sciences and the College of Technology. The School of Business Administration, which evolved from the Department of Business Administration, was established in 1980. In a similar move, the Department of Education became the School of Education in 1983. In 1993, the Department of Architecture became the Division of Architecture, and is now the School of Architecture. The present organizational structure of the School of Graduate Studies was adopted in 1987. All of the colleges and schools offer both undergraduate and graduate degrees. The Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary maintains graduate and professional programs only.

The only Seventh-day Adventist doctoral research university, Andrews University is also a comprehensive institution of higher learning, integrating an exemplary liberal arts and sciences core with five powerful professional schools and several excellent graduate programs.

Today, Andrews is the most prominent university in Adventism. More than 3400 students study here, representing most U.S. states and nearly 100 countries. Another 3000 students study at affiliate campuses around the world. We offer approximately 130 undergraduate programs and 70 graduate programs.
