Parents & Families

As a parent, guardian or family member of an Explore Andrews student, we recognize the importance you place on your student having a successful academic journey. Andrews University understands that the transition to college is not only experienced by our students, but their families as well. Each family situation will be unique, whether this is your first child to go to college, or the first member of the whole family. We understand that you want your child to have a successful collegiate experience with academic support and career awareness. As a member of the Andrews University community, be assured that your child will have access to support services and activities to help them understand their calling, discover major and career options, and learn how they can change the world.

We want you to know that the Explore Andrews Program is dedicated to helping each one of our students understand not only the academic part of the Andrews experience, but to also help those students fully embrace our rich campus culture by taking part in the many social, recreational and spiritual activities that we have to offer.
