And <em>why</em> do you keep going? While our answers may vary, when it comes to our Andrews University family I believe our mission is a big part of the answer for many of you.</p> <p> To &ldquo;Seek Knowledge and Affirm Faith in order to Change the World&rdquo; not only defines who we are but also guides the day-to-day operations of Andrews University. As a result, our mission has naturally become a core part of our identity to students, faculty and staff, as well as to the communities we touch and serve&mdash;locally, regionally and globally.</p> <p> This doesn&rsquo;t happen by chance. There has been clear and convincing evidence of God&rsquo;s leading throughout our nearly 150-year history, and we daily continue to see His hand guiding our future as we finish His work through the mission He has given to us.</p> <p> And that future includes you.</p> <p> God has chosen you to not just be <em>part</em> of our mission but to actually <em>be</em> the mission of Andrews University. When that happens&mdash;individually and collectively&mdash;there&rsquo;s no limit to what God can and will do through each of our Stories of Andrews.</p> <p> But while it&rsquo;s much more important to <em>do</em> mission rather than just say it, from time to time we must be more intentional about how we talk about our mission. Are we, and our mission, adapting to an ever-evolving world? Are we connecting with younger generations by sharing our mission in relevant and meaningful ways? Do future students clearly see what truly sets us apart to help them in their big decision about which college to attend?</p> <p> With these critical questions squarely in front us, I believe that this is not the time to let our guard down. Instead, we must continue to tell the Andrews Story&mdash;more clearly, more convincingly, and with a deeper conviction.</p> <p> One of the ways we will be doing that is through what&rsquo;s called our &ldquo;brand position statement.&rdquo; Here&rsquo;s why that&rsquo;s important. It&rsquo;s certainly clear that the current climate of higher education presents significant challenges for this nation&rsquo;s colleges and universities. After carefully assessing what that means for Andrews University, it has become clear that more than ever we must be more intentional in telling our story in this busy and challenging environment. Are we adequately sharing what differentiates Andrews? Does that difference matter to the students we&rsquo;re trying to reach? In other words, are we clearly answering the question, &ldquo;Why Andrews?&rdquo;</p> <p> So, in order to help us answer these questions with a strong &ldquo;yes,&rdquo; we&rsquo;ve just completed months of careful assessment, which included internal and external research and testing. That review and reflection led us to this brand position statement for Andrews:</p> <h3 style="text-align: center;"> &ldquo;World Changers Made Here.&rdquo;</h3> <p> Even as we begin to embrace and use this new phrase, please understand that it does not replace &ldquo;Seek. Affirm. Change.&rdquo; Instead, it supports it, unpacks it, and simply explains it in a new, fresh way.</p> <p> You&rsquo;ll be hearing more in the months to come. Until then, please visit <a href=""></a> and watch the video to learn more.</p> <p> Thank you for all the ways in which you live and do the Andrews University mission&mdash;our big &ldquo;why&rdquo;&mdash;by being a World Changer in your own unique and powerful way.</p> <p> Andrea Luxton<br /> President</p> Fri, 16 Mar 2018 13:16:07 +0000 PMC Traffic Circle Closure <p> Construction on the Health &amp; Wellness Center continues with utilities being brought to the construction site. For this specific work, the PMC Traffic Circle will be closed starting on the morning of Monday, March 19, 2018, and will be re-opened at 5 p.m. on Friday, March 23, 2018.</p> <p> During that time, no traffic will be allowed to enter the PMC Traffic Circle. For details on traffic flow, see the map <a href="">here</a>. Please plan your routes accordingly, including travel time, as this will increase traffic on the rest of the campus roads.</p> <p> Additionally, during the entire construction project, we want to remind the campus to pay extra attention to heavy equipment or delivery trucks that may be around the construction area.</p> <p> Paul Elder<br /> Facilities Director<br /> 269-471-3284</p> Fri, 16 Mar 2018 12:42:26 +0000 Spring Break Hours for Dining Services <h3> Dining Services Hours for Spring Break 2018</h3> <table border="1" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="1" style="width: 500px"> <tbody> <tr> <td> <strong>Date</strong></td> <td> <strong>Terrace Cafe</strong></td> <td> <strong>Gazebo</strong></td> </tr> <tr> <td> March 16</td> <td> CLOSED</td> <td> 9 a.m.&ndash;5 p.m.</td> </tr> <tr> <td> March 17</td> <td> 12:30&ndash;2 p.m.</td> <td> CLOSED</td> </tr> <tr> <td> March 18</td> <td> CLOSED</td> <td> 11 a.m.&ndash;6 p.m.</td> </tr> <tr> <td> March 19&ndash;22</td> <td> CLOSED</td> <td> 9 am..&ndash;7 p.m.</td> </tr> <tr> <td> March 23</td> <td> CLOSED</td> <td> 9 a.m.&ndash;5 p.m.</td> </tr> <tr> <td> March 24</td> <td> 12:30&ndash;2 p.m.</td> <td> CLOSED</td> </tr> <tr> <td> March 25</td> <td> 11:30 a.m.&ndash;1:30 p.m.</td> <td> &nbsp;</td> </tr> <tr> <td> &nbsp;</td> <td> 5&ndash;6 p.m.</td> <td> &nbsp;</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <p> The Office of Dining Services will be open March 19&ndash;21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.</p> <p> *Office will be open from 10 a.m. to noon on Friday, March 16 and closed Friday and Thursday, March 22 &amp; 23</p> <p> <br /> &nbsp;</p> Fri, 16 Mar 2018 11:34:09 +0000 Week in Pictures: March 15, 2018 Thu, 15 Mar 2018 16:27:42 +0000 Lamson Health Club Spring Break Hours <p> <strong>Lamson Health Club will be open the following hours during Spring Break (March 16&ndash;25):</strong></p> <p> <strong><u>Friday, March 16:</u></strong></p> <p> 6&ndash;11 a.m.</p> <p> <strong><u>Monday&ndash;Friday, March 19&ndash;23</u>:</strong>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p> 6&ndash;11 a.m. (Monday&ndash;Friday)</p> <p> 5&ndash;8 p.m. (Monday&ndash;Thursday)</p> <p> <strong><u>Sundays, March 18 &amp; 25</u>:&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </strong></p> <p> 10 a.m.&ndash;4 p.m.</p> Thu, 15 Mar 2018 15:21:22 +0000 Be a Student Ambassador in Hong Kong <p> Hong Kong Adventist College is looking for 10 students to study and work as student ambassadors in Hong Kong for a year.
