Connecting Columbia Union Seventh-day Adventists

Washington Adventist University

As Hurricane Dorian ravaged the Bahama Islands last week, members of the Washington Adventist University (WAU) community prayed for family and friends on the island. They have now found a way to help!

“Ever since graduating from CUC in 1970 and having passed the Gateway to Service Arch over the years, I have thought of a way to honor the military service of my classmates and the many others who attended the school and were willing to give their all in service to our nation,” expressed Charles Shyab.

Washington Adventist University (WAU) announced today that it will offer to purchase the 14.5 acre property currently home to Adventist HealthCare’s Washington Adventist Hospital, which will relocate to Silver Spring in August with a new name Adventist HealthCare White Oak Medical Center.

After a particularly rainy spring and summer, in which The Washington Post reported the D.C. area received nearly a year’s worth of rain during the first seven months of the year, followed by significant rainfall from the remnants of Hurricane Florence, Washington Adventist University in Takoma Park, Md., recently had Halcyon Hall, the women’s residence, and other buildings tested for mildew and mold by a board certified industrial hygienist.
