This is my college, and I personally believe that it is a diverse and inclusive campus. There is always somewhere for you to fit in, and always someone who wants to be your friend. The advisors and professors are all so caring and kind in and outside of the classroom. In my opinion, it is a Christ-centered and loving place!!
I really like ACU. It's a great school. There is a boring greek life culture that I am not involved in. The social culture is excellent. There are many people that I am friends with at the school. The class size and academics is very high quality at ACU.
First choice, best as an international student and nurures talents.
Compared to many other campuses, Abilene Christian loves to put the students first. There is always a professor or staff with an open door policy who will be happy to help those who are looking for guidance. Once you give the university a chance, you will fall in love with its family-oriented feel. To many of the students and staff, it's a home away from home.

Don't second guess your instincts about what to major in. You were right the first time! Also, relax about making friends - it takes time, but you'll find your niche. Study hard and reward yourself with something fun when you do well. And- do something exciting over the summers!
A friendly enviornment, that prepares students for life, and gives them an outstanding education.
Odd rules like no dancing unless it is some type of cultural dance. The meal plan situation; the meal plans are pretty unfair. You can only use your meal plans during certain times and you are only allowed to get certain things with your meal plan. We pay the money for our meal plan we should be able to use them when we want and get what we want with them.
My classmates were friendly and helpful to help each other with everything such as tutorial or group study.
The small classrooms are by far one of my favorite aspects of this school. Though I was afraid that such a small school would merely be a replica of high school, I have found that I love the small atmosphere. Such an environment really helps me to soak up information as I don't feel like cattle, I feel like an individual to each and every one of my teachers.
The person that should attend ACU is a person that is interested in having an impact on society. ACU places a strong emphasis on community involvement because they want their students to be aware of the injustices that are in the world, and they want to prepare their students so that they can be the ones to address these issues.
What campus daily life was like.
The classes at Abilene Christian University prepare you for the real world and the professors prepare you for your further classes. Different courses can be more challenging than others so some students may have to work a little harder than others but in the long run Abilene Christian gets you prepared. Students who aren't willing to put in the time to work, study, and who aren't willing to ask questions when they don't understand would not do well.
They have the highest acceptance rate in the nation to medical school.
This school is unique because of how friendly and accessible the faculty and professors are. I also applied to some very large schools, but after spending nearly a year here with only about 4000 others, I am so glad I picked a small school. If I need to meet for advising or about ideas I have about research, all I need to do is shoot the faculty member a quick email and I can meet with them personally within the next week. That's just something that would not happen at a large university.
They are best known for football, eating area, chapel,the great teachers, and the divers campus
Academics are great! Classes are relatively small, professors know you by name and actually like talking with you. Some of them will even invite you to their house for study groups! ACU is also a very respectable school and has a good reputation. Maybe not as good as UT or A&M, but still up there.
ACU is awesome. End of story. Well for me anyways. I could not imagine going anywhere else. Everyone is so friendly, there is lots of school pride, faculty is amazing, and academics is great, and is actually more respectable than many people might think.
From being at this school for two semesters now I think there are a lot of different types of people at Abilene Christian University. One stereotype that someone might put with my school is that everyone is a Christian but that isn't true. There are jocks, frat kids and possibly stoners. All kinds of people make up the student body.
The social clubs, study abroad, and intramural sports.
Not completely. Sure, there are some stuck up kids but most people are very friendly. A lot of students do come from wealthy families but that does not make them rude or stuck up. And then there are a lot of people that don't have much money and are going to be in a lot of debt after college. But ACU makes it all worth it. Most students are Christian and religious but there is always going to be that party crowd. It's not very big but we do still have one. Also, ACU is full of white kids but it is pretty diverse as well. We have students from all over the nation and world come here.
That we're just a bunch of stuck up, rich, super religious white kids.
