"To be an AU architecture student has allowed me to develop a holistic perception about the natural and built environment. It has helped me to understand that buildings shape our social interaction, and to know that they can coexist with the natural world without destroying it. Through a multidisciplinary process of education we learn to use the tools of design to enhance life quality and community. I personally believe that AU has an amazing concept to teach architecture in ways that can help those who experience shortcomings because their buildings don’t enable better possibilities. Being here taught me that the design of a building goes beyond its boundaries because no structure stands alone without its context. Creating places that protect, enhance and promotes community, economy and sustainability its AU’s School of Architecture best talent. We don’t simply look at buildings, we look at everything that surrounds it and everything that will go in and out of it. I’m honored to be a part of Andrews University Architecture School because it's a mission oriented school, with amazing people that want to contribute with knowledge and work with the global community. Andrews University has a very ethnic and internationally diverse campus, which influences a strong sense of stewardship among students and results in a great experience and unparalleled learning experience"
