3 College Sophomore

Facilities: They have top-notch computers here (like Macs); our athletic centers offers different intermural sports and activities for people to get involved in; the library has three stories filled with computers, books, CDs, DVDs, periodicals, etc.; we have a mane green space where students set up projector screens to watch movies during the warmer months and where our "Legacy Games" take place; campus events range from artist series to local bands coming and jamming out with the student body; there are also things like "Last Man Standing" (Humans vs Zombies)

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: The school offers different things but since it is a private, christian school (which isn't bad), it doesn't offer a whole lot of options. The student council will occasionally plan fun things, there are art series, plays, music, and girls and guys can hang out in each other's rooms on Fridays. You will usually find the nightlife quiet here unless you know the right people or you go off-campus.

5 College Senior

Majors: I would choose Asbury University Masters program all over again. Because the school is small, I believe that I got my money's worth. While I have concerns about job availability in my field in the greater Lexington area, I feel that I am equipped to handle a position in social work anywhere in the country.

4 College Senior

Academics: Asbury's Master of Social Work program is very challenging. Professors and fellow students are a close-knit bunch as the department is small. Everyone is willing to offer help. The university has an agreement with the seminary across the street if electives are needed to complete course requirements. I have enjoyed my experience at the university and the seminary.

3 College Senior

Nightlife: There is some nightlife in Lexington, but generally this does not apply to most Asbury students as it is a Wesleyan university.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My dorm is great, the rooms aren't that big but they are big enough. The only major problem is that the closets don't have doors and aren't that big but the rest of the dorm is lovely. We have an indoor gym and everything.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Among my closest friends I have a Korean, a Haitian, a Jamaican, two Americans who grew up in Africa, and three normal Americans. This shows how many different backgrounds are at this school.

4 College Freshman

Parking: The only reason I wouldn't give it an A+ is because the freshman parking lot is just a tiny bit too far but no big deal. There is enough room for parking, everyone is allowed to park, and I'm pretty sure permits are free.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: My program is highly regarded across the nation. The workload is appropriate and completely applicable to my chosen career path.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Even though Asbury is a conservative campus, it is accepting of all types of people.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Asbury works closely with every student to help in obtaining financial aid.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: It's pretty good. We have a wide variety of food options in the cafeteria and it changes every day. It is unlimited food, you don't need to pay by the plate. They usually have fresh fruit and meats.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: We hang out in dorms, in the student center, in the food area. We don't get into trouble, but we do have fun. We sometimes leave campus. There aren't any bars/clubs that we go to. There is a Christian organization that provides a fun dance environment for us to have fun at, but there's no alcohol.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: we have a pretty awesome fitness center with a pool and weight room. tennis courts are also available. The new (2010) Millers Comunications building is AMAZING!! It's pretty state-of-the-art, and a
big draw for media comm students. They also have a great psychology program, one of the top equine programs and a good, well known education program, with Asbury graduates in demand. Fith-year seniors are not discouraged.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I know some stuff goes on, but as I'm not a part of it, you don't really see anything going on. It's a very very safe campus. You'd probably have more trouble with some one coming from outside than any of the fellow students.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It's Kentucky, so the weather here can vary a lot grom day to day. It may be 32 and sleeting oneday, and 50 and sunny the next. (No exaggeration). The whole winter is usually a little like that. Summer gets super hot. Spring and fall are really nice, and fall can feel like it lasts into December sometimes, with intermittent cold snaps. At any rate, there are may months at the beginning and end of the year where students can do their studying in warm sun on the different greens Asbury has.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Asbury is somewhat diverse, and they are working to make it more so. They have many nationaltitied and ethnicities represented, but they comprise a relatively small percentage of the student body.
As a Christian school, most students 'have come from Christian families and backgrounds. However, not everyone is a Christian. Most people are straight, or are working through not being straight. One thing I love about Asbury, though, is the acceptance that you feel on-campus. It's like everyone is a part of a great big family.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I do not personally live off-campus, so I can't tell you a lot of details. I do know that Wilmore, where Asbury is located, is a SMALL town. There are some housing options, but not a ton (all the Wilmore options will pretty much be within walking distance of campus). Also, Lexington and Nicholasville are two nearby towns with housing. Lexington is 15-45 minutes away, depending on traffic and your location. Nicholasville is more like 15-25. Lexington is pretty big, so there are lots of options and price ranges. Nicholasville is probably overall a bit cheaper, but perhaps not as nice. ********Asbury's dorms are not coed, and are really pretty nice.*****

4 College Freshman

Parking: Finding a place to park is never a problem. Freshmen and sophomores do have to park in a more remote lot while juniors and seniors may park directly by the dorms, but, on the weekends, anyone may park in any of the lots without consequence.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I do live in housing, either on or off campus, provided by Asbury University.

4 College Junior

Diversity: In addition to those from America, Asbury University has students and staff from all over the world. Several students and staff hail from India, with other diverse countries such as South Africa, Nigeria, South Korea, and many more, represented as represented as well.

5 College Junior

Majors: Asbury University's Media Communications program is very intensive. It's mixture of lectures, assignments and project are designed to help the student engage all of the facets of his/her prospective career. "Stepping out your comfort zone" is a daily experience. However, the faculty, while requiring of you your best, are always ready to aid and assist you in understanding those requirements, and do all that they can to help you achieve your best.

5 College Junior

Majors: To date, I've not yet fulfilled my internship requirement. I plan on completing this this part of my commitment to this program, not only because it's required, but because I cannot become competent within this field without practical, demonstrable experience.

4 College Junior

Majors: I'm still currently enrolled in the Media Communications Program at Asbury University. Though arduous, as can be expected, I'm very satisfied with the program, and I plan to continue within this major.

5 College Junior

Majors: I have not found it at all difficult to become part the Media Communications Program. There is no special application process involved

Within the Media Communications Program there are a variety of different emphases, with my personal choices being either Production or Film Studies. What may be unique requirement is that a Media Communications major must complete at least one assignment within each of the "core classes" with either a "B-" or higher passing grade in order to proceed with the attempt at the major. So far, I've had no difficulty passing the "hurdle" of these "gateway assignments.

Additionally, internships will be a later requirement of any Media Communications Major. While this may seem daunting at first, the faculty are all excellent people, being professionals within their respective fields, and are overwhelming ready to assist any Media Communications student through the uncertainties of this process.
