5 College Freshman

Academics: I feel that people who are in my major have a lot of opportunity at ACU. There are internship opportunities such as World Wide Witness and many of the missions professors work with this program and/or have been missionaries themselves. The workload isn't very stressful, especially in your first semester when you are getting used to the idea of college. All of the bible majors are in one bible class together and get to know one another really well.

3 College Freshman

3 College Freshman

Administration: Some of the policies make you question if you are really being treated like an adult, but it is for your own good and they don't want any liability.

Campus Housing: Understanding and approachable RAs. Very close and social enviroment. There are always doors open in the halls.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The school does have a lot to offer, but students have to dig a little deep for it. Financial aid office was some help, but their advice consisted of steps I had already taken as far as financial resources.

Health & Safety: Although, we are not immune to crime in regards to health and safety there is hardly any cases. We live in a pretty safe environment.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing is a step up from the dorms. They are owned by the professors on campus so you have a connection with your landlord so that's unique. The added space and freedom are worth the extra distance and price.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Abilene is a small town so if you come in with expectations of the city night life you will be let down. However, if you take in what the city has to offer you can have a great time. There are many unique shops and venues that you can't find anywhere else. The people are always very inviting and friendly. The key to having a great time is to find a group of people to bond with and making your own fun.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The freshman dorms are a bit cramped, but they are kept very clean by the staff. The atmosphere is social in that everyone is friendly, but people do not venture out of their social groups often. The hall doors are almost always closed. As you move up to the upper-class man dorms and apartments, things get much better.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The biggest financial aid and most common financial aid that you can receive is the merit scholarships. These require you do have high grades in high school as well as on the sat/act. Being a person of merit, such as a clean record and a being an overall good person are important. The specific departments also give out some money for students and these are based again on grades. So overall, put in the effort to make great grades in high school is the key. Extra-curriculars and community service are a plus.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Intramural sports are a big deal on campus, as much so as even the varsity teams. The participation is tremendous and it provides a way for people to connect. The gym on campus is amazing. Everything is state of the art and there are always people making use of the numerous facilities that it offers.

Health & Safety: ACU takes the students well-being into great consideration. They provide lots of lighting and emergency alerts for students on campus. The university police are always vigilant and help you at a moments notice, whether it is an emergency or you just need help. The strict rules such as curfew and visitation hours are in place because the campus would rather be safe than sorry.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are very few places to eat out at off-campus. The town does have a couple of unique places, but when the night rolls around there are virtually no places to eat at.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The strictness comes with going to a christian school. Any immoral behavior is frowned upon and severe actions are taken in cases of law breaking. Visitation hours can seem a bit too much, but the school is slowly starting to ease up on some issues. Compared to other private christian universities, the school is actually more relaxed.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: The party scene is not really a prevalent on campus. Being a christian school, if there are any parties they are kept undercover. The parties that are known take place off campus so people can drink and do other stuff without repercussions.
