4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is very nice, the rooms are large, the dorms are in walking distance to classes, there is a network of community within the dorms, and although we have community bathrooms they're always clean.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: ACU does not have any national fraterinities or sororities, instead we have social clubs that are only at ACU. This creates a different environment from other schools with Greek life. The social clubs do have some stereotypes but overall everyone is accepting of each other.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Because ACU just became a D1 school only a couple of years ago, our teams are not quite comparable to other D1 schools so the attendance at sports such as football is somewhat low.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Although we are required to attend extra requirements such as chapel and Bible classes, I am extremely happy with my choice to attend ACU and believe that the extra requirements help create the community that brings together the people at ACU so well. I would choose Abilene Christian University every time.

4 College Freshman

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Be cautious of your surroundings.

Overall Experience: it is a fantastic school!

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living in the dorms my freshman and sophomore year was something that truly shaped my college experience. The dorms are maintained well and located in good spots around campus, typically close to the buildings where classes take place. Resident assistants typically become mentors in their residents' lives, and the dorms are just one form of community within ACU where you will meet amazing people. Although there aren't hot tubs (if only), every guy dorm has a pool table, ping-pong table, soda machine, TV, and other manly amenities. Girl dorms all have couches and TV's.

5 College Junior

Academics: I cannot stress enough how amazing the faculty and staff are at ACU. They genuinely care about their students. The curriculum depends on the department, so I can't speak for every department when I say this (or every student), but I've found my classes in my department to be extremely challenging. The general education classes are not as vigorous, but the upper-level courses in your major are guaranteed to challenge you, stretching you beyond your limits. I'm grateful that I am challenged in my coursework.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: ACUPD does an outstanding job in keeping ACU secure. There is always plenty of parking, and campus police do a great job of monitoring the parking lots. When it ices or snows, the campus shuts down, which is a great way to prevent accidents involving students who live off campus (juniors, seniors, and graduate students). There is no alcohol, tobacco, or any other drugs allowed on campus, so we students feel extremely safe. Taking a walk or job around the Lunsford trail (a trail that winds around campus) is a normal activity that is completely safe for students.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I cannot exaggerate how amazing ACU professors are. Professors genuinely care about their students and their journey. All professors address students by name. I feel extremely challenged in my classes at ACU, and believe I am being more than adequately equipped for the real world. Classes range in size from as few as 5 students to as many as 200; however, most classes are in the 20-30 range (in upper-level major courses).

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: A degree from Abilene Christian University is one that is reputable in the state of Texas, and for many alumni, nationally and globally. Alumni like Max Lucado and Rick Atchley are doing great things for God's kingdom, while others are accepted into medical school (recently a 90-95% acceptance rate), law school (recently a 90% acceptance rate), and other graduate programs. Meanwhile, a degree from the College of Business Administration has led students to extremely renowned accounting firms and corporations. ACU alumni hang their degree up proudly.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Although ACU has just recently joined the NCAA Division I Southland Conference, students and alumni have always had spirit for ACU football, basketball, volleyball, and track teams. ACU recruits some of the best athletes in the country, a rare trait for a Christian university.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: ACU has been such an amazing experience for me. The relationships that I've formed with students and faculty are something I would not trade for the world. ACU has a very welcoming, Christian atmosphere, yet it equips its students to prepare for the secular world as impactful leaders. It has the perfect balance of strictness (e.g. no contract prohibiting students from drinking alcohol), spiritual formation (chapel attendance and Bible classes have been tremendously beneficial for me), and being a tradition-rich university that provides a unique college experience.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: As a student athlete for ACU, we just recently got a new soccer stadium, and are currently buiding a new football stadium

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Abilene Christian is a great school, it is a Christ centered learning place. You are encouraged to join extra circiular activities, join clubs, or participate in bible studies reliogous gropus, and other organizations. The proffesors often apply their teaching, and problem solving skills towards current global or local problems.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: College is what you make of it. If you choose to put yourself out there, you will make a lot of friends and have a great college experience. However, if you choose to hide out in your dorm, you most likely will not have such a good time and may even end up hating the school. In my personal experience, I am enjoying college. I work on the weekdays in order to help my parents with the cost of necessities I may need. I love my school I chose because the environment is very comforting and reminds me of home. The people are very nice and I would definitely choose to attend Abilene Christian University again.
