ADU provides meaningful opportunity to support student success through a strong trust with outstanding faculty. This two-way relationship aligns and engages the student in mission and academic excellence. As a faith-based institution, ADU is privileged to promote a culture of high expectations in all ADU’s premier academic programs because ADU faculty and staff are accountable to One greater than themselves. This same philosophy is evident in all Adventist healthcare facilities. Student experience is further enhanced by small class sizes, individual mentoring, and research opportunities. ADU extends this invitation to partner toward success to every student.
Students are encouraged to get involved on campus. Various professional programs plan activities and events to keep students engaged. Campus Ministries is another great way of getting involved and meeting new friends. Activities such as picnic and play, weekly worship services, MAKE talent show, a Gala Dinner, and bowling nights are just a few of the events planned by this vibrant group of students. If you are not able to participate as a leader, consider being a volunteer for the various events organized. In addition to on-campus activities, students can join local church-based ministries with one of the 60+ Seventh-day Adventist churches in the Orlando area. The Campus Ministries team as well as the Campus Chaplains are located in The Office of Mission, at the Andersen House. Students are invited to come and enjoy the Andersen House’s back porch which has a lake view or take advantage of the study room also available. Stop by to relax and meet new friends, to chat or pray with one of the Chaplains, or just to say hello and grab a yummy snack!
