4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. Asbury is located in a small, safe community, and I do not even feel unsafe walking around campus alone at night. I never feel in danger on campus, and there is security roaming around campus constantly.

2 College Sophomore

Administration: Compared to other schools, Asbury is pretty strict. There is a dress code (that is becoming more lenient), but students are not allowed to wear sweatpants or shorts to class (however, some teachers do not care). This is because the university wants their students to dress professionally. Asbury also has a curfew starting at 12 (1am on Friday nights), but you are allowed extensions, so it is not terrible. However, there is absolutely no drug or alcohol use allowed on campus. Since this is a Christian school, the university wants the students to keep a high moral standard.

3 College Sophomore

Technology: There are computers to use both in the library and the student center on campus. Students can also choose between a mac computer or a pc, which gives a variety of computers to use and makes students more comfortable. There is wireless access all over campus, and sometimes it has problems, but it usually does not last longer than a few minutes. Asbury also gives students a pretty large printing budget, so there is no need to buy your own printer.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Everything at Asbury is within walking distance. A student can walk from one end of campus to the other in about fifteen minutes.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: It depends what group you hang out with. Drugs are present, but not prevalent.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: We have over 30 countries represented, but the primary race is white. For some, color means a stoop lower than the "smartest" people. But for most, Asbury is a very accepting and loving school that reaches out towards countries for ministries and mission trips.

4 College Freshman

Technology: Sometimes Internet will just go down for 5-30 minutes. Kind of weird, but it's not too bad. The school computers are generally good all the time, though.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: looks pretty nice, some buildings are outdated, but generally it is a beautiful campus. There are many on-campus places to hang out, and some student fellowships just off-campus which are also available. There are many activities and events planned throughout the year. Combine this with a smaller population, and campus starts to feel like family.

1 College Freshman

Diversity: I am an african american student here on campus and I've counted, there are about 12 of us in total on campus out of about 1,600 students. That is just not right.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is literally no reason to ever not feel safe here. It is in a small town and nothing happens in it. I walk around the town in the middle of the night and never have any problems

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received a great scholarship to be here but I know that does not work for all. If I can offer some hope though, I was never one to think I would actually win these things but I won the scholarship so go for it!

5 College Sophomore

Majors: It was super easy getting into my program. Since my major is Equine Managament, I was able to come in with little knowledge and still be accepted. This specific program starts from the basics and builds up to the harder stuff; it allows you to get a feel of what it will be like to be in this field after graduation so that if you are uncomfortable with this type of major, you will know sooner rather than later to choose something different. Along with classes that actually take place in a classroom, there are also many classes that are hands on, which I personally enjoy. This type of program was relatively easy to apply for; there aren't any hoops to jump through or unexpected things to account for. People here are very accomadating and helpful.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: We have chapel three times a week where you can worship and delve into the word. We mix up the styles of worship, from hymns and organ playing, to comteporary music with the student band. We also have speakers that range from all over the US, parts of the world, our faculty, and even our students; they talk about the different experiences in their life and how God has impacted them personally.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: They have top-notch computers here (like Macs); our athletic centers offers different intermural sports and activities for people to get involved in; the library has three stories filled with computers, books, CDs, DVDs, periodicals, etc.; we have a mane green space where students set up projector screens to watch movies during the warmer months and where our "Legacy Games" take place; campus events range from artist series to local bands coming and jamming out with the student body; there are also things like "Last Man Standing" (Humans vs Zombies)

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The school offers different things but since it is a private, christian school (which isn't bad), it doesn't offer a whole lot of options. The student council will occasionally plan fun things, there are art series, plays, music, and girls and guys can hang out in each other's rooms on Fridays. You will usually find the nightlife quiet here unless you know the right people or you go off-campus.

5 College Senior

Majors: I would choose Asbury University Masters program all over again. Because the school is small, I believe that I got my money's worth. While I have concerns about job availability in my field in the greater Lexington area, I feel that I am equipped to handle a position in social work anywhere in the country.

4 College Senior

Academics: Asbury's Master of Social Work program is very challenging. Professors and fellow students are a close-knit bunch as the department is small. Everyone is willing to offer help. The university has an agreement with the seminary across the street if electives are needed to complete course requirements. I have enjoyed my experience at the university and the seminary.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: There is some nightlife in Lexington, but generally this does not apply to most Asbury students as it is a Wesleyan university.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My dorm is great, the rooms aren't that big but they are big enough. The only major problem is that the closets don't have doors and aren't that big but the rest of the dorm is lovely. We have an indoor gym and everything.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Among my closest friends I have a Korean, a Haitian, a Jamaican, two Americans who grew up in Africa, and three normal Americans. This shows how many different backgrounds are at this school.

4 College Freshman

Parking: The only reason I wouldn't give it an A+ is because the freshman parking lot is just a tiny bit too far but no big deal. There is enough room for parking, everyone is allowed to park, and I'm pretty sure permits are free.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: My program is highly regarded across the nation. The workload is appropriate and completely applicable to my chosen career path.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Even though Asbury is a conservative campus, it is accepting of all types of people.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Asbury works closely with every student to help in obtaining financial aid.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's pretty good. We have a wide variety of food options in the cafeteria and it changes every day. It is unlimited food, you don't need to pay by the plate. They usually have fresh fruit and meats.
