C.S. Lewis's "The Great Divorce" in Reader's Theater

The J.N. Andrews Honors Program invites you to:

A Reader's Theater Production of C. S. Lewis's "The Great Divorce"
Sunday, April 5, at 6 p.m. in University Towers Auditorium.

Starring Brian Strayer as the narrator, with Keith Mattingly, David Faehner, Frances Faehner, Monique Pittman, Ante Jeroncic, Hyveth Williams, Joseph Greig, Ronald Knott, Zackery Babb and Alejandra Castillo.

C.S. Lewis's "The Great Divorce" (1946) is a short, allegorical novel about a man who finds himself in Hell to discover that the damned may take a bus to Heaven, and that anyone who wishes may stay there. What follows is a series of conversations between the "Ghosts" of Hell and the "Solid People" of Heaven, exposing the choices that we make toward either of those destinations in our everyday lives. 

This live presentation of Reader’s Theater differs from traditional theater in that the voice, rather than blocking and costuming, carries the drama. The script is read rather than memorized, resulting in a directed, well-rehearsed dramatic presentation. This production is directed by Olivia Ruiz-Knott, in partial fulfilment of her Senior Honors Thesis.

Running for Change

What do 10 Andrews University students and 12,804 children from Cambodia to Colombia have in common?

Why, A Leg to Stand On, of course! For us, it’s our literal legs—the ones we are counting on to carry us 13.1 or 26.2 miles on April 12 (depending on the runner). For them, it’s a prosthetic device or orthopedic care that has opened up a world of possibilities by enabling the simple act of walking.

YOU can make a difference. Your support of the Andrews University ALTSO Marathon Team will help fund orthopedic care for a child in need whose family cannot afford treatment.

Any amount helps and all donations are tax deductible.

We need your help to raise an additional $4,020 by race day to reach our goal!

Adventist Forum presents: "When Loughborough Got It Wrong,"

Adventist Forum presents:
"When Loughborough Got It Wrong," by Brian E. Strayer, PhD, Professor of History, Andrews University, at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, March 28, 2015, in Chan Shun Hall on the campus of Andrews University in Berrien Springs, MI.

Dr. Strayer is professor of history at Andrews University where he has taught since 1983. He earned degrees in history from Southern Adventist University, Andrews University, and the University of Iowa. He specializes in European history and Adventist history.  His most recent book is the first scholarly biography of J.N.Loughborough, titled "J. N. Loughborough: The Last of the Adventist Pioneers."

About J. N. Loughborough:
Beginning his ministry in 1849, John N. Loughborough was one of the first to be ordained by the budding denomination that became the Seventh-day Adventists. Nonetheless, he outlived all the other early leaders, dying in 1924 at the age of 92. In addition to his pastoral, missionary, and administrative activities,  he published two book-length apologetic histories of Seventh-day Adventism, along with extensive historical sketches published in various periodicals. Accordingly he is sometimes considered ³the first Adventist historian.²  This presentation will examine his historical writings and interpretations in the light of modern scholarship.  How do the facts he omitted and the interpretations he made affect the historical understandings his readers would take away from his accounts?

Adventist Forum is open to the public.  All are welcome.  For information, contact Art Robertson at robertsa2@earthlink.net or call 471-7150.

A Forum on State and Regional Conferences.

Hooked on Games

Andrews University has invited Andrew Doan, a neuroscientist, to talk with undergraduate students about the effects of video games on the brain. His main presentation will be at Pioneer Memorial Church on Thursday, March 5, at 11:30 a.m. for Thursday Series.

Doan is a recognized expert in technology and video game addiction. With a doctoral degree in neuroscience, his background in molecular neuroscience adds in-depth knowledge of the areas of internet addiction, video game addiction, and technology addiction. He spends 80 percent of his time in medical research as head of addictions & resilience research for the U.S. Navy in the Department of Mental Health. Doan is also the author of "Hooked on Games." 

"Hooked on Games" provides insight into the minds of hardcore gamers, helping us understand how and why gamers are lured to and trapped within the digital world of video games and the Internet. This book outlines methods on how to escape the addiction and to start on the path of recovery.

Pirating the Caribbean Mind: Theoretical Piracy on High Seas of Colonization

Andrews International Center for Educational Research (AICER) invites students, faculty and interested participants to attend a research symposium on Tuesday February 24, at 5:30 p.m.

Presenters:  Dr. Larry Burton, Professor of Teaching, Learning & Curriculum; Editor of the Journal                                      of Research on Christian Education
                       Dr. Anneris Coria-Navia, Assistant Professor of Teaching, Learning & Curriculum

Pirating the Caribbean Mind: Theoretical Piracy on High Seas of Colonization

In this presentation we will reflect on the impact of colonial and postcolonial experiences in the 20th-century epistemologies, and hegemonies which underlie imperialist actions and postcolonial thought. We will then highlight educational and social practices and institutions shaped by colonial and postcolonial realities. These include schooling, access to services, social values and norms, and culture. These introductory sections will enable us to explore how colonial and postcolonial actions have “pirated the mind” of Caribbean citizens. Included in this section will be a presentation of the appropriation of uniquely Caribbean theoretical constructs by other cultures in the name of “globality.” We will conclude the presentation with implications for North American educators.

 Exercise Motivators and Exercise Causality among Andrews University Students: A Correlational Study 

The purpose of this study was to identify the most important exercise motives that influence Andrews University undergraduate students’ choices and behaviors toward acquiring a more physically active lifestyle. A second purpose was to investigate whether Andrews University students were autonomous, controlled, or impersonal in the regulation of their behavior toward exercise. Data collected from 316 undergraduate students were statistically analyzed by using descriptive statistics, bivariate, and correlational analysis. Findings revealed significant exercise motivation predictor variables for three exercise causality orientation profiles: autonomous, control, and impersonal. In addition, it exposed significant differences in the exercise motives and exercise causality orientation between the students from the School of Health Professions and other schools.

Andrews International Center for Educational Research (AICER) invites students, faculty and interested participants to attend a research symposium on Wednesday, February 11, at 5:30 p.m.

Presenter:  Dr. Lori Imasiku, Assistant Professor, Teaching, Learning & Curriculum, Andrews University

Photovoice Research Methodology

In this presentation, Dr. Lori Imasiku will discuss the photovoice methodology she used in her study of twelve students from the Kalingalinga community in Lusaka, Zambia. These students were selected to share their educational experiences through a participatory research model.  All twelve students produced an educational narrative along with suggestions on how the educational system could be improved to better serve Zambia’s most vulnerable youth. Seven of the twelve also contributed to the research through a photovoice project in which they documented their school and community and how the many facets of their lives played positive and negative roles in their education.

Face-to-face participants meet in Bell Hall 013

Conversation Partners

Do you enjoy meeting new people and having conversations? Want to learn about other cultures and languages? The Center for Intensive English Programs is looking for volunteers to become Conversation Partners for international students studying English.

Volunteers are asked to commit 1-2 hours a week to their partner. There is a range of possible activities, from eating lunch together to going to an art exhibit to playing games together. It is our goal, not only to give our students practice conversing in English, but to build relationships between them and the Andrews University/Berrien Springs community.

Service credit is available for the College of Arts & Sciences and the Honors Program. 

For more information or to volunteer, please contact Amanda Meseraull at:

WSC Call for 2015-16 Scholarship Applications

WSC Call for 2015-16 Scholarship Applications

The 2015-2016 Women's Scholarship Committee scholarship applications for graduate women students are available in paper form at the Administrative Assistant's desk in the English Department in Nethery Hall or through e-mail attachment by writing Dr. Stella Greig at  greigs@andrews.edu. Please put "WSC Scholarships" in the subject line. Completed applications are due at noon, Friday, March 20.

There are two kinds of application forms.  One form is for the Steele Scholarship, which is for women who have served as cross-cultural missionaries for at least 4 years and who are working on a graduate degree in any of the university schools.  The other form is a general application for women working on a graduate degree in any of the university schools.

General application forms will be considered for several different named scholarships (which have their own criteria--e.g., must be:  a Seminary student, a School of Education in educational or counseling psychology student, or a student working on a music degree, etc.), as well as the more general WSC Advisory Scholarship and Honored Women Scholarship.  To give applicants the best chance to receive an award, the committee will determine for which scholarship an application fits best.  Along with the application form, students will need to request letters of recommendation from two different individuals (either from two professors or a professor and a work supervisor).  The letters of recommendation should include the professor/supervisor's assessment of the worthiness of the applicant in terms of scholarship, work habits and the likelihood that the student will meet her goals.  Scholarship funds awarded are to be applied towards tuition for the 2015-16 school year.  Questions may be sent to greigs@andrews.edu.
