Joining Webber as a branch campus in 2011, St. Andrews University is a comprehensive liberal arts university established by merger in 1951 but tracing its roots back to the 1896 founding of its predecessor Flora Macdonald College. Each school of the Webber family features highly qualified faculty, highly engaged staff, small class size, and a wide array of intercollegiate sports and other extracurricular activities. The University has been recognized as a Princeton Review Best in the Southeast College, a US News and World Reports America’s Best Colleges designee, and a GI Jobs America’s Most Military Friendly school. The University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, and numerous programs enjoy additional programmatic accreditations.
