I love the atmosphere and community on campus here. People are for the most part very open and kind and your professors really want to get to know you! The dorms are pretty good, and maintenence is always quick to respond to any issues you might have.
The social groups on campus are centered around sororities and fraternities.
I like the Christian community of ACU. Also, it is small, so I am always running into new people, but also forming deeper relationships with lots of people too! I've liked all of my professors, and the classes in my track have been challenging but also engaging. I have learned a lot here, and I love how many opportunities there are to be involved.
I live at the cheapest dorm hall, and it is overall okay. However, when I first came in the air vent irritated my breathing and induced coughing fits. This got better once I closed it. Also, the community bathrooms are a bit gross. Personally, I love going to chapel, but the high amount of chapel credits needed to participate in certain activities can feel unnecessary.
I enjoy the small community aspect of this school. Just walking across campus in between classes you are guaranteed to see at least 5 people you know, and I like having that comfort.
The leadership within departments is often very poor and not held accountable for unethical actions. Fraternities and Sororities are exclusive, similar to other schools, but I would have expected better from a Christian university.
The help and open communication within the university make all the difference in the style of education.
The math department is very rigid and should be a deciding factor depending on your major.
Great environment for learning and social life. Freshman year was incredible! The first week of school for freshmen was a blast and everyone on campus is so friendly. Got to know so many amazing people that beginning week! Teachers are great here. You can tell that they care for their students and not just about their job. The Computer Science, IS, and DET departments are all amazing. So much fun and everyone is there to help you and to help better yourself and your career. I've had so many academic opportunities just as a freshman. Love this school. Definitely worth it.
Not too many things. On occasion, especially as a vegan, there was some funky food. If you're not vegan though, you should be fine. It does also get quite cold, so it is important to remember to bring your winter clothes.
I love a Christian-based environment. Professors get to know students by name and are very intentional with helping them through their academic, personal, and spiritual journeys. The campus also encourages students to interact and get to know each other and offers many opportunities to do so. They also encourage strengthening relationships with the Lord.
Sometimes there tends to be a divide in ideologies among students, and sometimes professors. Because students get close with their professors, it becomes harder for professors to keep their teachings objective, especially in the Political Science and Criminal Justice department.
