2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The restaurants surrounding campus are mostly fast foods places and relatively cheap. However, these places are often unhealthy and the aren't many healthy options near by.

Guys & Girls: The guys on campus are very nice and helpful. Their interests are not much different than females. They attend church, are involved in clubs, and dress typically casual, similar to the way everyone is on campus.

Greek Life: The campus during pleading week is louder than usual, but the noise is not too overbearing. Overall, the Greeks aren't too bad.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I do not have pressure to drink or do drugs. My friends and share the same values, which helps greatly.

Campus Strictness: I am appreciative of the level of strictness in the university because I feel safe.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I hear boys and girls can only be in each other's rooms at certain times and EVERYBODY'S door must be open. I understand they don't want people sleeping around at a religious school but college is a time to be treated as though you are responsible so that you may learn to be responsible. Drugs and alcohol are prohibited on campus, which is nice for someone who's not into that. Also, LGBT students are allowed to at least openly say their orientation, which is refreshing for a Christian school.

Facilities: ACU as a gorgeous campus, especially if you've spent time living in the Texas desert. There are plenty of activities and the campus center has a great food court. The library has three levels; on the ground floor there are public computers and a Starbucks, and there is no need to be quiet; the basement has a host of books, is a place of absolute silence and perfect for studying; up top is mid-level volume and houses books, recording studios, speaking labs, and a full television studio!

Computers: Most often when you go to the library all the desktops are taken, but iPads are required and you can rent a laptop from Tech Support, so it's not too big of a hassle. Printers usually work, and the internet is fast but breaks down if more people than usual try to use it, like during the first week, homecoming, or finals.

Guys & Girls: Ring by spring is a serious deal here, but that isn't much of a problem when hot guys are all around!

Majors: The graduate school is very helpful through the admissions process. Since I completed my undergraduate degree at this university, the requirement to take the GRE for admission in this program was waived because of my GPA. The available space is limited in this program, so apply early.

Facilities: The Student Wellness and Recreation Center is the most popular and used facility on campus. It is a great source for extra-curricular activities and intramural involvement.

Health & Safety: I have felt safe mostly in all the campus at the university. Just simply lock the door and it seems like a vey trustable environment that you can just relax and be happy in without a worry.

3 College Senior

Diversity: There is a lot of people that are very diverse form others and mostly just outgoing and not really religious much but they do keep their values and priorities in mind. But it's nice to see a lot of races coming together and just enjoying some times in interacting with each other.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Well they are very well roomed. They look like they know what they're doing for the most part. Their social life is well maintain by them. They dress mostly to impress I would say but then again I was just a visitor. But I would say they know what they put themselves into.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: We all come together when it comes to praising our Lord but its like it's like your a freshman in high school all over again. Trying to get yourself out there and making new friends is harder to do when living off campus then it is living on campus. You meet almost everyone in your dorms and your only friend at the moment is roommate until you meet everyone but outside the dorms, its like most of the people your round come off as stuck up and have higher standards to talking to someone when they should be acting like Christian's, not hypocrites. But on the other hand most of everyone here, almost everyone, are the sweetest people you'll ever meet, especially the professors and some of them have that southern hospitality. You defiantly have to try to put yourself out there to make the right friends.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I live off campus and stay away from any scenes that include alcohol and drugs. Although some students would say "Its more fun partying/drinking" etc., but I believe there's more to ACU then the parties. You could go fishing, mudding, the lake, the State Park, swimming, bowling, movie theatres, drive-in theatres, the mall, star gazing, etc. It might look like there's not much to do here, but when it comes to hanging out with the right people, there's lots to do.

Weather: The weather here in Abilene is defiantly something to get use to if your own city/town weather doesn't change on you constantly. During spring and summer, it'll be rainy and sunny, most of the time really hot (sometimes over a 100 degrees). That's why us Abilene folks look forward to the cooling weather when autumn rolls along, when winter gets here it'll be down right freezing and snowing one day, and sunny the next. So its hard to say how the weather is for those driving from out of town, but I guarantee that you'll love the weather, sometimes..it's just the heat that'll get to you.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Midnight curfew for Freshman and all those rushing for the "social clubs". Guys are girls can only visit each other in their dorm rooms on Thursday 7-11.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Besides paying more big bucks for a meal plan, the food is very good and so are the restaurants in the campus center.

2 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There is nothing to do in Abilene. Most people leave on the weekends. There is a low standard zoo but that's the only "attractions". Guitars dance hall is where everyone goes on Thursday. That's it.

Scholarships: They give you minimum scholarships but how is there suppose to help with 40,000 (and raising) tuition?

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone is really pretty at ACU and everyone dresses up each day! For the most part everyone is extremely nice and friendly but there are your few stuck up rich kids.

Athletics: ACU usually has very successful sports teams and high-class athletes. Football games always have a great turnout, but most other sports are somewhat lacking in a fan base, even though there is a fairly high level of school pride in general.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: ACU is a very safe place to be. Abilene in general has a little bit of a small town feel where not many dangerous or scary things go on. There is the occasional incident on or near campus (i can think of 2 since I've been a student there) but the dorms all have security cameras and restricted entry. Campus police are very vigilant and helpful, even when it comes to things like helping a student who locked their keys in their car. I have never felt unsafe there.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are quite a few great "collegy" places to eat, like fast food, cheap sit down restaurants, and chains like Chili's close to campus. However, you generally have to go across town for a nice dinner or for great variety. Across town in Abilene, though, means only a 15 minute drive or less, so it's not so bad.
