Abilene Christian University Top Questions

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?


The "World Famous Bean" the food choices are usually weird combinations and are sitting out for long periods of time as well as the abundance of flies. The one reliable thing is the bean cookies ONLY OFFERED MON-FRI.

I consider the worst thing about my school to be the total cost of attendance. For me, the cost is about $45,000, which is a little bit too much. If the Lord hadn't blessed my family like he is, I wouldn't be able to attend this school. There are some of my close friends that aren't coming back because they can't afford to go there even though they would love to. The education is really good, but it seems like the cost could be a bit less for the same quality.


The worst thing about this school is that it's in a small town. A big city girl like myself loves the freedom of a large city, but a small town really limits your activities outside of school.


The worst thing about the school, considering it is an academic institution, is the school's location. It is in a relatively small area of West Texas. There are no large urban cities near to the school where students can study or intern.


The wrost thing about ACU would be that sometimes attending Chapel is a hassel, because you feel like there is so much more for you to do then going to Chapel.


The worst thing about my school would have to be the surrounding area. There's not a lot of fun places that college students would like to go to that are in a close vacinity. You would have to drive a bit to find places like the mall and the skating rink that the students would enjoy.


The worst thing about my school would be the meal plans offered. There needs to be more options and there should be an option to not have a meal plan that is offered to freshmen and sophomores, not just juniors and seniors. Some people do not like the cafeteria food and would much rather cook food on their own.


The lack of things to do around town is probably the most negative aspect. However, the people in Abilene and the people at ACU itself make it wonderful, so it is what you make of it.


It is too expensive. There is no way to attend ACU without taking out loans.


The dining centers are not always open at convenient times.


The worst thing about ACU is that there are a lot of the "sterotypical" people here and can be very hypocritical towards their beliefs and actions.


The worst thing about my school is that it costs so much to go here. The tuition is extremely high for what you are getting. I am paying up to about twenty-six thousand dollars a year. I am having trouble with affording it due to my brother, who is also currently enrolled at Oklahoma Christian.


The worst thing about my school is the cost of tution.


The worst this about this school is definitely its location. Abilene is about the least exciting town I've ever been to, and I'm not alone; most of the campus leaves for the weekend, because there is nothing to do here.


I think that it can feel pretty frustrating at times to be in such an isolated location. The closest metroplex area is Fort Worth, which is about two hours away. Besides activivites on campus, Abilene doesn't offer very much to do in spare time.


If you were not raised in a Church of Christ it can be a little overwhelming going to chapel every day that is not in the worship style that you are used to. When you start your first semester they build your schedule for you, which can be both good and bad, just communicate with your advisor what you need and they are nice about working with you, although it seems like a drag at first it usualy works out okay.


I go to a private christian university. I love my school, but the worst thing about it is the fact that I hear about people partying, and doing things they shouldn't be doing, then I see them the next morning at church. The worst thing is the hypocrasy of people who say that they are christians, then do things that are un-Godly. It really just disappoints me when I hear about my friends making bad decisions.


For me it can be difficult seeing many people who have been raised somewhat entitled, especially financially.


the cost.


It is pretty expensive


The worst thing about ACU is that it is Church of Christ.


Financial resources to pay for school is very taxing on myself and family.


The worst thing about Abilene Christian University is the expense the school expects. Always raising their prices, but try to feature a culturativated school. So majority of the students are their paying for school and unable to afford it or there stressed because of the price they fail to focus on the grades. Most importantly they fail to give direct advice on aides.


I feel like there are to many fake people who go to this school and wish it was more of an open school on some census.


I enjoy by school too much too pick something I don't like. Chapel is the main thing, but its not really a huge deal.


Lack of involvement of students not in social clubs. Really the only social aspect the school is involved in is for those who are in a social club.


I honestly cannot think of a bad thing about this school


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.


The Christian denomination of the school is Church of Christ, so you might feel as if there is a certain bias of the professors when teaching Biblical principles, but they are very open to different ideas and accepting beliefs that are different than their own.


The worst thing about my school would be the visitation policy. Boys and girls can only be in eachothers room on thursday nights form 7-11


Probably the worst thing is the fact that it's so expensive and there's not a whole lot of financial aid for those in my situation (one income, homeschooled family). Where I know of at least two of my friends that got full or half tuition scholarships that could have afforded to pay for a lot more than my family can. The experience is worth every penny, but each year it's a struggle to figure out how we're going to pay for my education.


The only thing I don't like about this school is the fact that the the tutiton is too high. When ACU recurtited me they didn't offer me any type of scolarship I had to earn it. Since I'm a indepent student I got all me aid but I still can't pay for it because I cant find anyone to co-sign for my financal needs. If they did a better trying to help me out on my tution then I would have no problem. I'm just here to better my life for the future.
