I’ve put this page together for friends at AMBS, specifically for students in the dual-degree programs who will take classes at Andrews (AU). This is my way of pulling together info about Seventh-day Adventists/Adventism (SDA) that I think could be helpful or informative for those interested in studying at AU.
