4 College Sophomore

Academics: Most Professors Are Good – There are a good variety of classes offered at Asbury. Most professors work with the students, but there are some bad ones.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: It gets crowded for finals, but there are plenty of computers around campus.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I Feel Pretty Safe – Whether I'm running at night or am making a late-night run to Applebee's with friends and have to walk all the way across campus to get to my car on the other side of the world, I feel pretty safe. It's a fairly sleep town (all the excitement is 15+ minutes away), but I always see a security guard driving around campus or see police officers on the streets. I feel safe.

2 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Squeezed in the Middle – The rules are quite strict at my school, but that is to be expected at a Christian college such as mine. I think a lot of the rules are pointless, but I choose to obey (most of) them, regardless. Many people have issues with the rules, but they totally knew what they were getting in to when they chose to go to this school. Go to a state school if you don't want as many rules!

Parking: Every year has their designated parking spots according to what parking sticker you have. Unfortunately, there are not enough parking spots, and the only place where there are plenty of spots is a 15 minute walk away from everything. Definitely needs improvement.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Sports Are Important and It Shows – When contemplating the status of sports at my university, I would for sure give it an A. The reason why I chose this is because lots of students go to my school because they know they will be guaranteed a spot on a sports team. It definitely unifies the student body, especially for exciting soccer or basketball games.

1 College Junior

Majors: Ed. Major – Education at Asbury Uni. sucks! Its as hard as getting your doctorates. They have so much criteria it's ridiculous! The advisers and people who are in charge of the education program, not all but most, are very rude and inconsiderate. They will not work with you at all to help you out. Very judgmental, and if they do not like you personally, you have no chance to progress in the major!

2 College Junior

Majors: Low Profile – To get into a program is simple. All you have to do is go to the registrar's office and sign a form. There is no meeting, or no one on one discussion with someone to determine the right path for you.

4 College Junior

Weather: Experiencing the weather at Asbury from season to season is absolutely enchanting. A student is able to experience in all types of weather and enjoy in seeing the leaves change from season to season. Asbury is a lovely campus, and the changes from the weather only enhances it's beauty. Weather you walk out in a warm summer afternoon in a light dress, or need to grab a jacket for the cool fall breeze, or even bundle up in a warm coat and boots for the three inches of snow under your feet, Asbury is a campus that will have a season of weather for everyone.

3 College Junior

Facilities: Active Activities Bord – Asbury provides opportunities for students to be engaged in that other Colleges do not provide. When Asbury puts on a program, or campus activity you can expect it to be successful and well thought out. They have a board that is advised by both student's and faculty, and thankfully, the student's have a large involvement in the decision making process.
A few activities that have been largely accepted and attended to by the students include; Narnia Night, Highbridge, Coffee House, Class Games etc.
Thank you for providing programs.

2 College Junior

Diversity: As a student who has attended Asbury for three years I have been discouraged with the diversity on campus. As a christian campus, we draw in many missionary students, and those involved in church. While christian studies is a focus at Asbury, I believe the University is missing an opportunity to reach and draw students in from other programs including sports and general education. An outsider looking in would see the majority of students walking to and from class to be white and would see minimum diversity. I would love to see more diversity in ethnic/racial, and economic backgrounds.
While the University lacks in ethnic and racial diversity, I have noticed Asbury to be strong in accepting students for who they are as individuals. This has been a progress over the years, and I would like to see this develop even further. Asbury has a huge opportunity to reach students. Please don't allow the school to be secluded in it's own little world any more.
Thank you.

Drug Safety: Hardly Anything Here – There is rarely anything that goes on here. There are a few occasions of people doing stuff on campus, but if people want to do something, the typically have to go to UK to do anything.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Many White Students – Asbury mainly consists of white people. 99% of people are Christians, considering it is a Christian school. Sexual orientation is basically straight, since it goes against the bible to be anything else. There aren't many international students but the numbers are rising.

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of Options Not Too Far Away – With Lexington and Nicholasville so close to campus, my friends and I never have a problem finding a suitable place to eat out if we don't want to eat on campus. Fast food, sit-down restaurants, diners, etc. are all available in the nearby towns. Wilmore itself doesn't have a diverse selection of restaurants, but again with the other towns so close it hardly matters.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Trustworthy Atmosphere – Campus life is safe and secure mainly because of the ability to go anywhere on campus and always see smiling faces. The community being so small makes traveling around campus completely care free and keeps an atmosphere that requires no worrying. I have never felt threatened in anyway whether I am walking around in the middle of the day or at 3 o'clock in the morning. The campus is small so being near a populated building or a safe place is never a problem. I trust the students and the community around Asbury so much that much of the time I don't even lock my door.

5 College Student

Diversity: Love It! Asbury is very diverse and different. We're all Christians but we all have different belifs in politics and other major topics. But its a safe place to discuss the topics.

5 College Student

Health & Safety: Totally Safe – Small town I feel very safe. I feel safe enought to jog and go running. I feel free and safe. Which is most important!

3 College Student

Local Atmosphere: Wilmore Is Small – Going to Asbury I knew what I was geting myself into. Wilmore is VERY tiny but thats somewhat of an attraction. I like the atmosphere. But I do wish there were more places to eat around the town.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: There are plenty of activities to keep people busy. However students are usually more focused on academics and do not do much partying. No drinking allowed so there is no visible party crowd. I'm sure some people drink, but it's not noticeable.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Asbury is proactive in trying to limit the chances of unsafe or illegal activities on campus. There is very little crime and I have never worried about my safety.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: The Caf – The Caf has a bad reputation. But compared to the community college I used to go to it is wonderful. We have a big salad bar, an ice cream bar (blue bell), stir fry bar, omlette bar, pizza/pasta/fast food bar and the hot food or main bar. Oh yes cannot forget about the awesome dessert bar.
Asbury also offers a option of eating in the Grill, which is supposedly better food- but I don't think so.
When you get a meal plan make sure you get the block plan. The other one gives you three meals a day and if you don't use those meals then they are gone. Where as if you get the block plan you can swipe other people in, or use as many or as few a day as you would like until you are out of meals (which rarely happens unless you consistently eat in the caf 2-3 times a day).

Local Atmosphere: Living in Small Town USA – Wilmore is a tiny town. There is not a whole lot to do right in Wilmore but Lexington is about a half an hour away and Nicholasville is less than 15 minutes away. Here, we have a old fashioned dinner (which is quite cute), a subway, an IGA, Dollar Store, Chinese place, and a variety of other shops. One of my favorite attractions is the Old Fashioned Christmas. Imagine an old movie where the streets are filled with people, all the shops opened up their doors and serve hot chocolate, cider and cookies- that is exactly what the Old Fashioned Christmas is. It is fantastic.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: Wholesome Education That Truly Prepares You! The social work program is very good. The professors are genuinely interested in helping you become competent professionals who can also maintain personal health. We openly discuss many issues we might encounter. It's challenging, but not overwhelming. There get to be more papers and research assignments than homework. At least 2 internships/practicums are required, but are well supervised and well-rounded (depending on the placement) Great I definitely enjoy the genuine atmosphere in this program!

Guys & Girls: We do have some diversity, because of missionaries. We value modesty, so have a dress code. Unfortunately, it isn't always enforced. We have many ministry opportunities, especially in nearby towns. We have mandatory chapel 3 days every week. It's great to worship with the whole school, but sometimes people feel negative pressure because of this requirement. Relationships are relatively peaceful. There's a unique stress people feel to get married... other than that I feel like the student population is changing to be a little bit less responsible and a little less devoted to the Christian faith... which is cause for a decent amount of conflict!

Computers: Great Resources – We have both PCs and Macs available to all students in computer labs. The labs aren't always open when needed, but the school is great at hearing student input and attempting to make adjustments. We have a $30 printing account, so we can print hassle-free unless you go over the amount (which doesn't happen very often!) Wireless was just introduced to all the dorms. They're still working out the kinks, but it's pretty reliable. We also have a proxy that filters inappropriate sexual or other content. Because this is a Christian campus, many people appreciate this accountability! Though there are occasional problems with information being blocked for some research topics, there are ways to get internet off-campus. Most people have their own laptops, but printers aren't so needed.
