3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Campus housing is extremely limited. the facilities themselves are nice, better than average dorms. It's great for a year to get socialized on campus, but loud freshman and kids up at all hours makes it hard to study in your own room at times.

2 College Senior

Scholarships: They're so flooded with the influx of students, that they cannot process paperwork fast enough on their out of date systems. They'll be moving to Jenzebar this year, which was definitely paid for by raised tuition, room and board, and pretty much fees across the bar. Expect tuition to keep going up. Hopefully you won't have to wait 2.5 hours the first 3 weeks of school to see 1 of 2 financial advisers. Make appointments early, and keep checking.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I got a decent amount of aid, although most was achieved and found on my own beyond those the school offered directly. The scholarships thorough the school are varied, and unique compared to many other universities, especially if you happen to be an athlete in one of the sports offered.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: I love the look of campus. They have upgraded a lot around campus.

3 College Freshman

Computers: They are busy doing midterms and finals but I haven't seen them THAT busy other times during the semester.

3 College Freshman

Parking: I live on campus so parking for me isn't too bad. I just walk to class. but I do know that some of my friends have struggled to get a parking spot.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: So far loving living in the dorms. It's different than life back home but I'm happy to be living with new people.

College Freshman

Diversity: As far as I can tell we're pretty diverse but I only just starting going here.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I love the school. Its an amazing place to learn and grow!

2 College Senior

Nightlife: It is almost non existent, however it is not hard to find a group of people that consistently get together and make their own. Although the school polices behavior pretty strictly, students will always find a way to circumnavigate those rules.

2 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Strict is an understatement. In being a private university, Arizona Christian has the freedom to police who you invite to your dorms, what pictures you put on your facebook, and the language you use.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: Work very hard with a church or non profit organization to get sponsored in the form of scholarships. The school offers a decent amount of opportunities to pay for tuition this way.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: People are generally very kind and are just like any other college students. Most guys are athletes since the school is small yet it has many sports teams. Most girls are musicians for the same reason: it has several music programs. People from out of the state soon realize that in Arizona you must dress light so there are certain visual perks that come with this.

5 College Senior

Majors: I am in the Biblical Studies major at ACU. It is a phenomenal program and I am challenged every day not only at school, but also in social life with others because of what I have learned. Because this program has challenged me, I can now challenge others to think critically about relevant topics in our culture.

Nightlife: The nightlife at our school for the most part seems pretty fun. There are no parties or bar/club scenes. Because it is a Christian college, it is a little difficult to find students who want to have a nightlife because some students have been super sheltered their entire life. None the less the night life is still fun and the activities are great.

College Senior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus, I am a commuter. Although I do not live on campus, I do participate in a few students led activities on campus that have connected me with students who do live on campus. Dorms seem nice and social atmosphere is great! Cost seems very expensive.

2 College Senior

Scholarships: I think our school needs to stop raising tuition and spending the money on "free" Ipads for currently enrolled and incoming students. I think rather the tuition should not be raised, and if raised there should be more scholarships involved rather than free Ipads!

3 College Junior

Parking: Doing the Best for What They Have. It's not currently a huge campus, though they use the space very efficiently. Parking fee's are cheap, but sometimes you have to park along the neighboring side street which is still very close to campus.

5 College Junior

Weather: It's Phoenix AZ. Sunny all day every day! It does get very warm, but that has never effected any event or sport.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Fast Growing Major Support – Just into into more NCAA stuff this year. Lots of scholarships towards athletes, transfers and freshman alike. Baseball, Basketball, and volleyball are the big ones right now, as they have the immediate facilities for those. Golf just took off this semester, and they are looking for more.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: All Over – The guys and girls at are school are all over the map. You have jock guys who try and get with all the girls they can and these are most of the athletes. Then you have guys who don't care much for that and are there to find a Christ-loving wife. The same applies to the girls. Where it gets messy is how often people find themselves on both sides or in-between these to extremes.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Love It...But – Love the school and what they are about. The teachers there are absolutely amazing for the most part and do a great job with students. One down side is that the school seems much more worried about growing in recognition and athletic stature then the students who actually attend the school.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: You'll Hear About It – ACU's drug/drinking problem is something you hear about, not something you see regularly. The most you hear about it comes from the athletes on campus who are engaged in that life style.

4 College Senior

Academics: You'll Actually Learn – Clasroom sizes are small which means that interaction is better with the professor. Workload is not overbearing because teachers make learning fun. The facilities are immaculate with everything centrally located.

3 College Junior

Parking: Just Keep Looking – Since the university is quite small, the parking lot is bound to be small as well. The worst time to find a parking space is early morning at about 8:30am since that is the first class the majority of the students choose to take. If the driver does not get there fifteen minutes before, they will need to continue looking for other space.
