Campus Housing: Housing here is great! Rooms are a great size and very spacious even for two people! Worst case scenario is normal, not liking your roommate. But here the Hall Monitors are very helpful and loves to work with these cases to make everybody feel at home.

Off-Campus Dining: There are a few Chinese restaurants in town, but each is different and unique in its own way. There is a Middle Eastern restaurant that is quite interesting since I did not know they had restaurants like that! Also, as in any city there are some of the popular food chain fast food places.

Local Atmosphere: Everybody is Abilene is very nice and caring, with most people ready to help you in your situation. There are a few activities available for students to do off campus, such as Prime Time (a amusement park), minature golf, movie theaters, and a shopping mall. It is a very religious town and the town unites for certain events.

Athletics: Football is the biggest sport celebrated here at ACU. Most of the students attend this sport as it is a way for students to gather and socialize while showing their support.

Diversity: Mostly white, Church of Christ kids, but still I feel lots of diversity (especially compared to the little town I came from).

Local Atmosphere: Abilene is a very old town, one of the first old west towns. It has a LOT of historical things going on. It has three universities in this town so very university oriented. It has a zoo, cultural center, performing arts center, ok shopping, and has the most churches per capita of the entire United States (I'm told), so many churches to visit.

Majors: Love my psychology major. I have now double majored in psychology and biblical studies, missions. I plan to use my knowledge or how the brain functions to go overseas in missions work.

Athletics: ACU just went up a rank to a higher division. Everyone is excited about that. The intramurals are GREAT. I've been involved in three different intramural sports, sports I would probably never go out for for the team. I'm in the marching band so went to all home football games. Support was very good. The Recreation Center is state of the art, only 4 years old.

Off-Campus Dining: Small town. Just not a lot to choose from. Maybe I'll learn about more as my years progress here.

Campus Strictness: Attendance is taken in each class and an e-mail is sent that you were counted absent or tardy. I know I got a small fine because I parked my car "on the parking line." It irritated me at the time, but I realize now that if everyone did this, spots would disappear.

Off-Campus Housing: I'm a freshman and haven't heard too much about the off-campus housing yet. I've heard there is more than enough availability.

Campus Housing: I love my dorm. Washers and dryers are free. I love my RAs. We have parties (not "party party") all the time. Nobody even locks their doors. I feel safe and secure here.

Computers: I have not had any problems (except at the new semester registering for classes) with the WiFi on our campus. I now know the tricks of getting in at new semester registration time. I have used the computer tech geeks many times and love their system. ACU gives us credit for printing copies. Never a wait in line at the computer repair place.

Weather: It does get cold and snowy in Abilene, but the university is very good about closing the university on snow days and very good about getting the word out to us. They do keep the cafeteria, recreation center and library open as much as they can so we have outlets to cabin fever. Snowball fights, snowman contests, etc. are spontaneously on these days.

Drug Safety: Really, I have seen no evidence of drug use on our campus. We are a Christian university and most of the students here do not partake in drugs or alcohol. I know there must be some of this going on somewhere, but honestly I don't see it anywhere in the dorms or on campus. I just feel this is a very wholesome university environment dedicated to being Christ-like.

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on our campus. The campus is well lit. We are a smaller campus so we don't have a long ways to walk at night. There are emergency phones all along the walking trail. As freshmen and sophomores we do have a curfew so no one is out after midnight. The police have an excellent e-mail warning system for school closings or other potential warnings. I have not heard of any campus crime since I've been here; although, I know it does exist but very rare.

Computers: I can always find an open computer in the library. It's all very simple and easily accessible.
