Arizona Christian University is genuinely one of the friendliest campuses you will ever be a part of. People are always happy and are willing to have a conversation with anyone and everyone. The teaching staff is very knowledgeable and understands how it is to be a student-athlete. The library at ACU is a great place to get help on assignments and to find information on all classes. There are athletes everywhere you go, and this helps the dynamic of the "student-athlete" life. Overall, the environment in which you will be in is stress-free and very helpful when it comes to academics.

I wanted to attend a small Christian college. Arizona Christian is perfect. I'm on the baseball team but also find time for inter mural sports and pick-up basketball games. The campus is small but the people and professors are great! They also have most varsity sports such as football, basketball, soccer, golf and more!
While attending Arizona Christian University, I can say that I have had such a great experience schooling wise, spiritually. I love the environment and the fact that we are expanding our campus , students, and staff. The staff members are very involved and you can tell that they love what they do for living. They have the students best interests at heart. At Arizona Christian University I had little knowledge of the Bible, but in two years I've learned so much more.
