Andrews University!

Guys guess what-I'M AT ANDREWs UNIVERSITY! I have officially been here for over a week-almost 10 days already. And I LOVE IT. For ANYONE who wants to come here for Any reason at all, or needs to go off to college-I encourage you to check out Andrews University first and see if it has the major you are looking for.
This campus is a much more rural environment-and I honestly thought I was not going to enjoy that, but its really so refreshing. I was also so worried that there wasn't any 'life' around Michigan-though there is more chain stores 15 minutes away than there is around me 15 minutes away! We have a huge mall in South Bend, IN 40 minutes away that is larger than the mall I have back home. And there is life All around the campus-and best of all, Everyone is SO NICE. Its not like new york at All. Even the kids that highschoolers would classify as 'weird' are accepted here.
And the college really cares about their students spirituality-We even pray every day before our class starts:D We have different activities on campus that also has to do with staying in touch with God. On Friday we get classes off early to prepare for sabbath, and there are multiple churches all around the area.
The food is all vegetarian-good for me and for your health.
And to top it off-it has a Web Design Minor (!!:D ) and of course a photography major:D I am currently taking an advanced studio 4 credit course, however I have never taken a studio class at all. So I am extremely worried-though I figure if God has opened that door for me to enter into that class-than He is going to show me that He will work through and with me with this one. And I hope through that His glory will be seen-because I don't know how I am going to get through it alone.

Anyways, I am eager to STILL get working on my africa photos (currently im sitting in the scanning room scanning film from Africa). However I really haven't had time to sit on my computer much at all, last week was all orientation, the week before that WE BOUGHT A NEW BEAUTIFUL CAR and I was packing and fixing up the car for Andrews, and the week before that was my first week home-Phew!! And now there is homework on my second day of classes-so much to do!
I'll keep you updated:)


  1. Glad you are loving your new school! :)
    I look forward to seeing new photos this year!

  2. Thank you Zalex:) I wish you the best of luck this year!

  3. Nina-bean...I can't tell you how refreshing it is to read about how happy you are there...you deserve this happiness! I am so glad that you found this place and decided to take the chance and give it a try...especially given the fact that all your academic advisors advised against it. Sounds like you and AU are a perfect fit! Only downfall is the distance between us...but no matter how far you go...you are always close to my heart. Here's to a great year ahead...I know you'll make us all proud!
    Love always,

  4. Wow!sounds like you are really enjoying yourself even if i don't know you i can really sense that you are a fun determined person...best of luck and may Andrews be a blessing to you...
