5 College Freshman

Academics: I know i am given the best education!

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Professors are awesome, probably one of the few reasons why I'm not transferring. They really make an effort to get to know you, where you're from, your major, things like that. I even had a professor who wanted to take the whole class out for coffee. Registration process is great...if you're in honors college. If not, be prepared with backup options for classes to take, as courses fill up fast.

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.
