The start of the school year is always an exciting time of year. As we complete this first month of school, the energy in the air can’t be duplicated. It’s great to have students back on campus.
As we transition to fall, we can reflect on a year of milestones: Andrews University celebrates 140 years, FOCUS celebrates 50 years, and the Andrews University Alumni Association is celebrating 100 years (1914–2014).
Additionally, this year marks 20 years for Niels-Erik Andreasen. As the longest-serving president of Andrews University, we are honored to have him at the helm. He’s personally an inspiration and mentor to me, as I know he is to many of you. We look forward to experiencing many more milestones with Dr. Andreasen in the future.
Finally, like anyone getting ready for a visit from family, volunteers, staff and faculty have been working hard to prepare for your homecoming. I’m thankful for each of your efforts to make this the best possible weekend.
As the fall is marked by students arriving and alumni returning, we welcome you back home. May your visit to campus be most memorable and enjoyable.
