Leaving home for the first time to attend a residential campus can be a life-changing event. This section of our website is dedicated to the friends and family of traditional students attending main campus only. We invite transfer students, high school students dual enrolled, online students or students on other campuses in our wide range of undergraduate and graduate programs, to see their respective sites.
For new undergraduate students, orientation week begins Sunday, August 19, 2018. Be sure to check out our Orientation page for more information about the week. There are also events planned specifically for parents and supporters, such as the Parent and Supporter Conversation and the President's "Farm-to-Table" Welcome Dinner. We especially invite you to the New Student and Parent Convocation and Matriculation Ceremony (Sunday, August 19), where we as a campus community–in partnership with you–commit our students to God's care as they begin this new part of their life's journey. At the end of the program, each student receives an "Andrews Study Bible" as a practical and tangible symbol of the Andrews University commitment to upholding the Word of God.
