Education That Fits!
Getting a college degree can be about so much more than just hitting the books! Alayne Thorpe, PhD, the Dean of the School of Distance Education and Int’l Partnerships at Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Michigan, joins us to tell us all about a three-in-one approach to education. That means nurturing your body, mind and spirit. Andrews is a non-profit, accredited, faith-based institution, which features over 200 programs and degrees: undergraduate, graduate and doctorate. Andrews University is a Seventh-day Adventist institution. As a Christian school, they encourage strong moral principles and a close relationship with God. But you don’t have to be a member of the Seventh-Day Adventists to enjoy all the school has to offer. U.S. News and World Report calls Andrews University one of the most culturally-diverse universities in the nation. Andrews has 885 students in 98 countries. And it co-sponsors Adventist Colleges Abroad.
