Live Wholly

Nurture Your Body, Mind & Spirit


Since day one at Andrews University, there has been a foundational commitment to wellness that has always been a hallmark of the Seventh-day Adventist Church’s three-in-one approach to education (a balance of Body, Mind & Spirit). Simply put, it reflects an understanding that education best succeeds if there is an equal emphasis placed on physical, mental and spiritual development.

So, when our students study with Andrews University—whether it’s on our Berrien Springs campus or at Andrews programs around the world—they’ll discover that this continues to be true as we seek to help each student learn how to study and live in a holistic and balanced manner.

Education best succeeds if there is an equal emphasis placed on physical, mental and spiritual development.

We are committed to helping students fulfill a life and education at Andrews—and a life and career beyond—that achieves health mentally, physically, socially and spiritually. To that end, we believe that the true success of an Andrews University education is ultimately measured using these holistic perspectives and expectations alongside the traditional measurements found in the grades and degrees our students earn.

Our students discover that this embrace of whole living is an aspiration not only reflected and cultivated in our curricular and co-curricular offerings, but also one that is valued and sought in the lives of each member of our Andrews University community, including our faculty and staff, whether they are teaching in person or by distance around the world.

It also can be found in the lives and inspiration of each one of almost 7,000 fellow students currently studying at Andrews around the world, joined by nearly 90,000 Andrews University alumni.
