A Mecca of Adventism

I arrived at Andrews University on Wednesday morning. The guest room I stayed in was gloomy and gray, and the whole campus seemed dreary. I suppose it was the weather. An Auburn faculty member I know said when he first walked upon his alma mater Union College, he "felt the breath of God blow upon" his face. So was I feeling God's tears falling upon Andrews?
One of the first things I noted was the bureaucracy in the school, but it is an Adventist tradition. I also noted its buildings and some of the interiors of its buildings are styled from the 1960s or 1970s, but once again many colleges are archaic.
Most of Wednesday I spent talking to professors and advisors. That was actually very helpful. On Thursday I sat in some classes, which were actually quite interesting.
