I was not a big fan of the basic courses. However, once I got into my major specific classes I really enjoyed the University. The professors in the Kinesiology department are amazing and super passionate and supportive.
It's a fantastic campus with astounding admissions counselors that help with whatever you need going into college.
I enjoy the department that I am specifically focused on. It is noteworthy that each of the professors that I have interacted with in the Bible department is extremely knowledgeable and enjoys their jobs. Every student is sought after and purposefully taught. They value education as well as spiritual development and health. There are only minor issues that are prevalent at the school. One is diversity, despite their pursuit of a more diverse campus, it is not achieved. A second is the level of respect and enjoyment from a small number of professors. Specifically the music department, there are a handful of genuine and caring professors, then there are a majority of disrespectful and uncaring professors. There are few professors like this spread out throughout all campus in almost every field of education. It just is prevalent since the school is still a smaller D1 school.
Very welcoming campus with a myriad of resources for students. A good majority of the professors are very caring and want their students to succeed. Campus itself is well taken care of and is quite a beautiful place. Students have several resources they can lean on if they are struggling and will find a caring soul wherever they turn.
So far I have loved the community, classes, and my professors have been great. Looking forward to getting into the nursing program.
I loved my time at ACU. As I get ready to close in on my final semester of Undergrad, I cannot help but think of all the opportunities I was afforded. I had the privilege of learning in intentional spaces, interacting with faculty who cared about my well-being as well as my academic success and being in a community of people who strive to create spaces of belonging.
The professors are welcoming, get to know you, and are there to help you. The Art Department is especially wonderful--extremely helpful in challenging students to pursue higher levels of technical skills while fostering a close-knit, supportive community. While being at ACU, my faith in general has definitely been deeper and I have been blessed by the opportunity to grow both my mind and heart surrounded by such a Christ-loving community.
Applying to Abilene Christian University was easy and efficient, it didn't take long for me to complete it. Once I was accepted, an admissions counselor immediately contacted me and offered me scholarship opportunities and more information about the college. While making my decision they offered many events in my area with more opportunities to learn about the school and get specified help. Overall love Abilene so far!
With this being my second year at ACU, I have really gotten close with the community both on campus and off. They make sure that everyone feels like they belong, no matter their background. I am a student-athlete and the staff that works with me and my teammates is phenomenal. This is a great school overall and I would definitely recommend it
What I love most about ACU is its community. It is great to finally be able to socialize with individuals that have like-minded faith and I finally feel like I am at a place where I am not judged for my faith; this is why ACU has become like a second home to me.
I'm having a very great time at Abilene Christian University (ACU). ACU is a very beautiful campus. The professors are very responsible and helpful. The other fellow students on campus are extra friendly and kind. The undergraduate programs that ACU offers are accredited. The classrooms and dorms are cleaned and very comfortable to be in/at. ACU also have different clubs and students organizations where all students on campus can be a part of.
Because of work, I am really not able to gather all of the experiences. I do enjoy the classes and the professors. Since the classes are smaller, I feel as if I am gathering a better learning experience. I also enjoy going to chapel.
great school, great community, great teachers. great christian teaching and chapel. lets go wildcats.
Abilene is a small University and it’s easier to get around. Having a smaller school makes it easier to connect with your peers and professors to strengthen your experience. The people here are so nice and it’s expensive but worth it if you take the experience of Abilene Christian University all in.
A great environment and great opportunities for education and extracurriculars. I would say they have a pretty good focus on Christ for a university. They have a lot of different things you can get involved in as well.
I haven’t been here for very long, but I can safely say that ACU is such an amazing place to continue your education at. There are so many people, like professors, faculty, and upperclassman, that want you to succeed and will take the time out of their day to make sure you get the attention you need to do so. Being a Christian center campus does help with the atmosphere it has created, making sure everyone is loved, valued, and seen throughout your time at ACU.
The professors at Abilene are hands on and professional. It's a great school and provides lots of opportunities and flexibility.
The campus is beautiful and enticing, and everyone who works there is pretty easy to talk to! As a student, the only thing that could really be changed is the food in the bean - not awful, but could be WAY better
Overall, Everyone is very helpful. They have worked to make sure you have the classes you not only need but want. Teachers are very personable at Abilene Christian. The admissions office works to make sure you have everything you need when applying. They also work with you for payments for tuition. They send out tailored emails just for you and what you need, and it is very easy to get questions answered when you email them.
Abilene Christian is wonderful. Not everyone's experience is like mine. This school was very integral to my growth most importantly with God. There is ample opportunity to fellowship and interact with different groups. Currently the school is growing with its diversity which is needed and important. I was involved with the science program which is rigorous but top notch. You have to be on your "A" game but I love the challenge. The school classroom are smaller so that gives you a greater opportunity to personally engage with your teachers I was fortunate to be on the track team and that is my "family" as well as my on-campus church. I do encourage that if you ever take a visit to ask many different people about their personal experience for example like their likes or dislikes. The school is also very expensive but they do give out scholarships so apply, apply, apply and talk to and advocate for yourself.
