Asbury is a wonderful school full of fellowship and smiling faces. This school makes me feel so welcome and safe, and I am very happy with my decision. I would most definitely choose Asbury again, due to the fact that the professors are caring, the staff is genuine, and the students are so reassuring and helpful! My favorite aspect of Asbury would be my liberal arts class, because it opens up a whole bunch of new topics and the professor is by far my favorite. She is so personable and approachable and happy. Our school is unique in the sense that it sincerely is a dry campus, and there are no parties unless they are school sponsored. No one goes against the rules and everything is clean fun. The special events that Asbury offers are awesome as well, whether it be a cook out and worshiping at midnight. I love this school and am so glad I get to be a part of the community.

Asbury is an amazing school! I am so excited to be going there. They have a top of the line Equine studies program, the campus is beautiful, I love the location, and I am really excited about the genuine community on campus. The school seems very Christ-centered and has some really neat programs. I would pick Asbury all over again because of the quality of the classes in my field of interest, the wonderful fellowship with students and professors, and the awesome campus!

Great Resources – We have both PCs and Macs available to all students in computer labs. The labs aren't always open when needed, but the school is great at hearing student input and attempting to make adjustments. We have a $30 printing account, so we can print hassle-free unless you go over the amount (which doesn't happen very often!) Wireless was just introduced to all the dorms. They're still working out the kinks, but it's pretty reliable. We also have a proxy that filters inappropriate sexual or other content. Because this is a Christian campus, many people appreciate this accountability! Though there are occasional problems with information being blocked for some research topics, there are ways to get internet off-campus. Most people have their own laptops, but printers aren't so needed.
