Academics: Overall, being a music major at ACU is excellent. The faculty to student ratio is small enough to guarantee personalized attention. I count my professors as my friends (for the most part). The only problem is that conflict resolution in this department is not very good.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Academics are of excellent quality. Difficulty varies between majors as necessary for that path.

Academics: I am a Nursing Major and this is the second year the nursing program has been on ACU's campus. I've really enjoyed all the classes and wonderful professors.

4 College Junior

Academics: The professors are great. Most of them are very helpful being available to help for one on one sessions. If the students put forth the effort the teacher will do so as well.
