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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Parking: On Foot Is Rough – Parking on campus is somewhat limited and the cost of permits are reasonable. However, I still don't have my car here. As a freshman the rules stated no vehicle but have since changed. I have found that I do need my car and it will be here next year.

Drug Safety: Not on My Campus – Asbury is a strong religious campus. I haven't seen the use of drugs at all. None of my friends are into that kind of thing.

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: Life in Dullsville – Asbury University is a Christian College and a pretty strict one so my night life is limited. There are a few clubs,restaurants and a movie theater in the next town. I don't have my own transportation so it is difficult to travel making night life a little dull.

Scholarships: Process Was Easy – I have nothing to complain about. They were helpful and professional.

4 College Junior

Transportation: Make Friends With Upper-Classmen – Asbury has gone through some changes over the past couple of months, but there is still a large majority of students without cars. If the situation arises Asbury has a list of students(who get paid) with cars that are willing to give other students rides to or from the airport.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Mostly White Students – But, Asbury (now University) has quite the diversity of students from around the world. As for religion diversity it is mostly Christian because it is a Christian Liberal Arts University. But there are still those who do not believe in Christianity.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Smooth Sailing – Although all financial aid is extremely stressful for students Asbury Financial Aid provides support to help accommodate all the stress. The size of the University allows very personal relationships with the staff, this allows the student and employees to gain a relationship while working hand in hand on coming up with best possible Aid package.

College Freshman

Greek Life: No Greeks – Asbury doesn't provide the greek style of life on campus. Once at Asbury you are considered an Asburian which includes the whole student body eliminating separation due to greek affiliation.
