Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month

Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month at Andrews University

National Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 to October 15) recognizes the contributions made and the important presence of Hispanic and Latino Americans to the United States and celebrates the group's heritage and culture. Hispanics have had a profound and positive influence on our country through their strong commitment to family, faith, hard work and service. They have enhanced and shaped our national character with centuries-old traditions that reflect the multiethnic and multicultural customs of their community.

Hispanic Heritage Month, whose roots go back to 1968, begins each year on September 15, the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Mexico, Chile and Belize also celebrate their independence days during this period and Columbus Day (Día de la Raza) is October 12. The term Hispanic or Latino, refers to Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or other Spanish culture or origin regardless of race.

Advanced Connections Training

Adventist Forum Presents: The Religious Roots of the First Amendment

Adventist Forum presents "The Religious Roots of the First Amendment:
Dissenting Protestants and the Separation of Church and State."  The
presentation is by Nicholas P. Miller, Associate Professor of Church
History and Director of the International Religious Liberty Institute at
Andrews University.  Come to Chan Shun Hall on the campus of Andrews
University Saturday, September 28, 2013 at 3:30 p.m. and join in the
discussion.

Nicholas P. Miller is a lawyer (JD, Columbia University) who has worked
on a number of cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. He is currently
an associate professor of church history at Andrews University Seminary,
where he also directs the International Religious Liberty Institute.

His book "The Religious Roots of the First Amendment: Dissenting
Protestants and the Separation of Church and State" was published by
Oxford University Press in May 2012. Miller argues that traditional
understandings of the genesis of the separation of church and state rest
on assumptions about 'Enlightenment' and the republican ethos of
citizenship. 

Professor Miller is also an editor of Homosexuality, Marriage, and the
Church: Biblical, Counseling, and Religious Liberty Issues published by
Andrews University Press.

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

Did you know that Adventist Church has a special message of "keeping the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus" in these last times. Have you ever wonder what the "Faith of Jesus" really meant? Is it merely a "faith in Jesus" or is it the Jesus' faith, a faith which Jesus possessed while on this earth, the faith OF Jesus? Come to find out the answer and what that might mean for your spiritual life!

SPEAKER: Daniel Ferraz is a native from Portugal but he spent many years in England working as a missionary and a pastor. He is currently serving as a pastor in the SDA Kalamazoo Church, a congregation which has doubled since his arrival!

Our teachers are Stanley Patterson, Associate Professor of Christian Ministry; Paul Petersen, Professor of Hebrew Bible; and Woodrow Whidden, Professor of Religion, Emeritus. Seminary doctoral students Katrina Blue and Laura Morrow will teach occasionally as their study schedules permit.

Since its beginning, the class has been studying “lesser known Bible characters” and will continue to study those narratives through September. For the final quarter of the year, we will use the regular Adult Bible Study Guide, which will be on the topic of the sanctuary—a major biblical theme.

The second Sabbath of each month we have a time of fellowship—typically a potluck dinner or supper. We invite you to come and check out our class. You just might find a group of new friends.

Faculty & Staff: Introduce Yourself to New Students & Parents

There will soon be a multitude of new faces here at Andrews University. Along with the chores of getting settled in, new students will be looking for information about campus services and majors offered on campus. This is a golden opportunity to introduce these young adults to what your departments have to offer.

New Student Packets. The Student Life office is in the process of putting together New Student Packets for both graduate and undergraduate students. If you have any fliers, coupons, brochures or pamphlets that you wish to include please submit them to the Student Life office by Friday noon, August 9. If you wish to include your item(s) in both graduate and undergraduate packets, please bring 700 copies to our office. If you wish to communicate only with undergraduates, we ask for only 500 copies of anything you wish to have included.

Your opportunity to introduce yourselves and your services to new students doesn’t end there!

New Student/Parent Ice Cream Connection Event. On Sunday evening, August 18, from 6–8 p.m., we will be hosting a Campus Services and Academic Departments Ice Cream Feed Fair in front of the Campus Center.Please note: this event replaces the old Nacho Libre event. Our goal is to have you available to meet parents before they leave on Monday noon. We invite you to sponsor a booth at this festive event where there will be ample opportunity to talk with new students and parents about their needs and how your departments can help.

Student Life will supply the ice cream and bowls, and we ask each department to supply a unique topping (approximately 50 servings) to smother the ice cream with! We are looking for different toppings, anything from hot fudge to mangos! When your department decides which topping you want to contribute, please email or call us at 269-471-3615 to confirm that your choice is still available.

Both of these are great opportunities to introduce yourselves and your services to new students.
We hope to hear from you soon!

Whenever sharing/advertising the bookstore online, please use andrews.edu/bookstore. It's an easy way for us to educate people about the two bookstores while avoiding any possible confusion.

Faculty & Staff: Freshman Orientation

August 19–23 is Freshmen Orientation week. Our goal is to make the students familiar and comfortable in their new environment and introduce them to the staff and faculty of Andrews University.

We would like to begin a new tradition this year and on Friday, August 23, we will host a BBQ supper on campus for willing faculty and staff to join a mentor group for supper followed by vespers. This interaction with faculty/staff has been a much-appreciated event by our new students over the years, thanks to the hospitality of many. We are hoping that this tradition can continue in this new venue.

While we are not asking for your home and food this year we are asking for a few things. Our focus this year for our new students is to make their first 100 days here on our campus a wonderful and unique experience. We would like faculty/staff mentors to give us 5 hours in the fall semester to join your mentor group in checking in and being available to the students during a set time:

  • 2 hours for the Freshman BBQ
  • 1 hour at the 30-day mark
  • 1 hour at the 65-day mark
  • 1 hour at the 100-day mark.

These specific days fall into the Tuesday Choice time slots already carved into each student's schedule, and we will provide locations and refreshments; group leaders will facilitate each group. On the 100-day mark we will have a special celebration in the Howard, again to recognize the successful completion of the first 100 days of this new year.

We are hoping for 22 faculty and staff members to be mentors for 22 New Student Mentor Groups.  If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the Student Activities office at 269-471-3615 or by email at cnelson@andrews.edu by Friday, August 9. Thank you!
