Andrews University was also named to the “America’s Best Colleges 2024” list by the Wall Street Journal/College Pulse. Andrews was one of three Christian universities in Michigan and the only Adventist university in the nation that was included in the list of the nation’s top 400 universities. In these Wall Street Journal rankings, Andrews also received the top ranking among all universities in Michigan in the category of Student Experience, which takes into account student satisfaction with campus facilities, sense of community, mental health support, and a number of other factors, including the quality of positive interactions within the ethnically and socioeconomically diverse student body.

Amy Rebok Rosenthal, associate provost for undergraduate education and dean of the College of Arts & Sciences, adds, “Andrews University’s commitment extends to assuring quality and success in the current studies and life of each one of our students, including their overall student experience while they earn an Andrews degree. It also seeks to assure significant and measurable success in our students’ graduate studies and careers beyond our campus as each one seeks to ‘Change the World,’ one of the core goals of our Andrews University mission statement.”
