Lake Michigan is the second-largest of the Great Lakes by volume and the third-largest by surface area.
Three of the favorite beaches in the area are Silver Beach in St. Joseph (13.4 miles from campus), Weko Beach in Bridgman (11.5 miles from campus), and Warren Dunes in Sawyer (22.6 miles).
Michigan's Fruit Belt is renowned throughout the U.S. If you have time, you may enjoy visiting one of the U-Pick farms in the area. Here is a helpful website to plan your visit: http://upickmichigan.com (Berrien Springs zip code is 49103).
If you arrive on campus after hours, on a Sabbath, or only have a very short time to visit, you will find campus maps at the main campus entrance Welcome Globe, in a weatherproof box mounted on the large campus map sign.
Our Dining Services offers full-service vegetarian and vegan meals—take a look at their menu. If you are short on time, you may choose a carryout option or pre-arrange for box lunches to take with you. So we can be prepared for you, please make prior arrangements for meals by contacting Dianne Wilson at firstname.lastname@example.org. Some groups have chosen to take their tour members to our Adventist-owned grocery store, Apple Valley Market, just next to the campus to pick up sandwiches, healthy snack foods, or something from the hot deli located there.
