4 College Sophomore

Academics: I'm a Biology major, and I'm also a member of the Body & Soul program (for anyone designated in the pre-health track). I really love it. Because Body & Soul is a smaller program, you get a lot of personal interaction with your professors and advisers. Everyone does their best to help you succeed--I'm pretty sure that this past year, 100% of the people who applied to medical school were accepted! ACU might not be considered as prestigious as some other colleges out there, but the dedication your professors give in helping you succeed is worth more than the name of the school.

I will say, though, we could use a new building. Foster is getting a little run-down.

Campus Housing: The dorms are great! I love being in the dorm, they are kept clean, and the experience of being around so many others provides great opportunities to make life long friends!

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: There are bus stops all over, but most of the campus is easily within walking range, but if you have to go to the store, it is very easy to find transportation!

5 College Sophomore

Computers: The computers on campus are all top of the line and very well maintained!

2 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Abilene is really hopping. You kind of have to make your own fun, especially while you are still in the dorms. But, if you like to dance, there is Guitars and Oplin.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Academics are fabulous!!! The dorms are grand! Campus life is pretty great!

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: The new recreational center is the bomb! It has everything you could ever want. The library is also really cool. There are all sorts of studios within the library and different levels that have different noise/activity levels. There is a lot of lawn space on the out skirts of campus, not so much in the middle though. Also, there is a fabulous walking track around the entire campus with beautiful sculptures and bible verses. And a beautiful place to study or just sit and relax is Jacob's Dream on campus.

Drug Safety: Smoking is not allowed on campus, which I love! Alcohol is also not allowed. On top of not having to smell smoke, you also never see cigarette buds or beer cans on the ground. However, alcohol and drugs are being used by students, as at any university, but it is not in your face. To find it, you basically have to go looking for it.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: ipads and tablets for everyone - very up to date on computers!

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: It's a religious school, it's a school where you are going to have to work hard in class to remain in school and it is also a school known for multiple/successful athletic programs - so it has a little bit of everything, but it all works out - we're here for a reason and the people are good

College Sophomore

Majors: no experience with internship - I just completed my freshman year at school

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I am very happy with new choice now and want to work in the field of football coaching - particularly in the college ranks. I was always interested in this but really didn't realize how much I wanted to do this until I started taking engineering course and said "this is not me"

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I'm just starting into this major/field of study - have had one semester of course work so far. The school will test you academically, but they all want you to work hard and succeed. It's a good "push" if you are willing to work hard and stay focused on the course work.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I recently changed my major from Engineering to Kinesiology and Exercise Nutrition. Although I am very good in math subjects, I learned very quickly that I would not enjoy a career in engineering but would be much better suited to working with people in sports related industries. The advisers and counselors, professors and my coaches were extremely helpful with changing my major and getting started in this new direction

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I'm in the Art and Design Program. I love it. You learn a lot and have a lot of flexibility.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Considering how expensive Abilene Christian is to attend, the facilities aren't near as good as they should be. Although "The Bean" and "Workout Facilities" are actually pretty nice.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I have not found that there are as many scholarship opportunities for graduate students as I would have liked.

2 College Senior

Drug Safety: Drugs do exist among students but it is very rare. If they are doing drugs it is usually marijuana.

Computers: The computer labs are very adequate, if they get crowded which is ver rare, you could go to the media room or borrow a laptop at the library. Printing on campus is easy as you can print in your dorms, departmental printing labs and the library. Wireless access is everywhere and is very reliable and fast, except sometimes when there is a problem which rarely occurs. You don't really require a personal printer except you want to have yours but it is wise to have your own personal computer.

College Sophomore

Transportation: Abilene is a very isolated city where a lot of people have their cars. Places are far from each other which makes it really difficult for international students and people who don't have cars to get to important places around. You have to find someone willing to give you a ride which sometimes feels imposing. It's even better because people are very nice and helpful with giving rides when they are free. Although I see some city link buses around, I don't think they are really important or meeting the needs of some people.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors are great and are always available to answer questions. There is also tutoring and study sessions available to help you understand better. They have writing and speech centers to help you with your papers and presentations, which is very helpful. Classes are small which makes it easier and fun going to class. The library is great for study and you have just everything you need there. Abilene Christian university's academics is Awesome!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The freshman dorms are really great. Depending on the dorm you want, you could have a private room. It's really comfortable and is convenient to move to your different classes. There is curfew at 12 midnight in the freshman dorms.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: If you ever visit ACU or even just the website, you will notice and be informed about the whole mobile initiative. ACU is really big on technology and having students be familiar in order to be successful in this digital era. If you do end up going to ACU, you have the choice of getting a free (YES, I said FREE) itouch, iphone, or ipad!! The incoming freshman for the fall of 2013 I believe is when they are starting the free IPad option. The printing is not bad at all at ACU, it is only .10 per page for black and white, AND you get 15.00 credit automatically each semester. I used like probably 6.00 the entire year! The library is great! There is a speaking and writing centers that obviously help out with papers or speeches and there is always a research library available. There are Macs everywhere and even a Starbucks on the main floor.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I am a Advertising/Public Relations Major and I absolutely love it! So far the professors have been great and I have learned a lot. The journalism department at ACU I believe is one of the best just because of the professors and my personal experience. At ACU, overall, the degree plans are really great and offer many different options, plus many times, mostly depending on the department, you can create your own degree plan (that is actually how many of the majors came into place). However, whoever you are that is reading this may be wanting to major in something else and so this review may not be helpful. BUT, I think that as soon as you figure out what to major in that is truly fits what you are passionate about then you will love it at ACU. ACU is really good about helping any student figure out where there niche is, they offer a class called Discovery that actually is only a couple weeks long--one day each week--that helps you figure out personality type, activity type, etc. and combines those things to figure out just exactly what type of job or career you are best suited for and from those options you are able to then decide on the major for you! I actually did this class before I switched majors to the one I am now and I highly recommend this class for ALL freshman, no matter if you declared a major or not.
