Cultural Diversity

Andrews University has truly redefined the phrase "Global Village." That's exactly what you'll discover right here on campus. Just browse through the International Food Fair and find out for yourself. Each year the university attracts students from 90-100 countries, who collectively account for over 20% of total enrollment.

At Andrews, these distinctive student backgrounds are woven together into a new and unique cultural fabric. This mini "melting pot" creates a cosmopolitan atmosphere that places Andrews among America's top universities for cultural diversity every year in US News and World Report. You'll find Andrews' rich cultural flavor in every corner of campus -- in every program and every classroom, every day.

Take Sabbath, for example. You might usher in the Sabbath by attending Friday German vespers, followed by a Fusion jam in the Howard Performing Arts Center featuring a diverse palette of musical styles. Perhaps you'll decide to hit French Sabbath School on Saturday morning, then head over to the Andrews Jewish Synagogue Service, followed by potluck at the Korean church, and maybe another potluck at the Fil-Am church if you're extra hungry. Then, after a few hours of AU Outreach in Benton Harbor, you could close the Sabbath with Oasis vespers at Spanish SDA.

After that, who knows? You'd probably hit one of the many Saturday night activities sponsored by ethnic organizations like KASA, Adelante, RACE, AFIA, or the European Club. On the whole, the kind of cultural awareness, appreciation, and opportunities a student gets just by being at Andrews is an education in itself.
