2015 Sessions will be held:
InSpire Day is the beginning of your Andrew College journey. As a new member of the Andrew family, you will meet friends and launch into a yearlong adventure.
InSpire Days are held in the summer proceeding fall semester. InSpire Day provides you and your parents with the opportunity to meet the college administration, faculty, and staff and returning Andrew students. You will participate in PRIORITY REGISTRATION for classes and receive your schedule as well as information about how to order your textbooks. You will learn about annual Student Life events on campus like the Deans’ Cup Challenge, Late Night Breakfast, Casino Night, and Andrew’s Got Talent, and many more. You will learn about the variety of clubs and organizations that are offered such as Fellowship for Christian Athletes, Andrew College Spirit Squad, Teachers Affecting Generations. Interested in sports? Learn about the different intramurals activities. We have flag football, dodge ball, ultimate Frisbee, racquetball, and basketball tournaments to name a few! You’ll also have the opportunity to tour one of the residence halls and get a glimpse of your home for the two academic years.
New Student Workshop takes place during your first weekend on campus. You will participate in events that promote team building and learn skills needed for college success. The weekend precedes a fantastic Welcome Week program featuring fun nightly activities! Meet the entire freshman class at "Playfair" or engage in the "Ultimate Game Zone" with your roommate and new friends! Need decorations for your room? How about making a sign for your residence hall room or picking out posters at the annual "Beyond the Wall" poster sale! From trivia contests to campus dances, we have an event that everyone will enjoy! New Student Orientation is part of your graduation requirement, and we consider it a great opportunity to start college life!

Parent Information Workshops
Andrew College has a unique approach to orientation. All parents are encouraged to attend an “InSpire Day,” where students receive PRIORITY REGISTRATION while their parents are introduced to college life from the “adult perspective.”
As freshmen are meeting with faculty advisors and registering for classes, parents will meet the President of Andrew College and learn about the rich heritage of our institution and participate in informative sessions about campus technology, financial aid, residence life, and academics at Andrew. You’ll also have an opportunity to discover if you are a “Helicopter, Lawnmower, or Blackhawk?” — in fun-filled and informative workshops. Lunch will be served in Turner Dining Hall for students and parents. After the day is over, parents and student will have an opportunity to meet and ask questions with the Financial Aid Office and Business Office as well as tour one of the four residence halls.
Here are some of the comments from our Andrew parents:
“I knew I was a ‘Helicopter parent,” but now I understand how to help my daughter transition to college life without attempting to “do it all for her.”
“The Office of Student Affairs make the parent information workshops fun and entertaining … I’m more excited about my kids going to college now than they are!”
“I was really worried about sending my daughter off to College, but now I feel so much better knowing that she’s in a place where people care!”
