If you want a small-school atmosphere and to be surrounded by hundreds of people that are all the same, ACU is a good fit. If you're interested in trying new things, stepping out of your comfort zone, meeting new types of people, and having a college experience, don't come here.

While Abilene may be good for children in elementary school, it's really not good for anything else. There are parks, a zoo, and a skating rink. However, even with three colleges here, there is nothing to do. The people at the millions of churches are very friendly though.

There is hardly any diversity at ACU. There is a good number of international students, but that's about it. Most students are from the upper class and white. They wear the same type of clothing, eat the same types of food, have the same religious beliefs, etc. There really is no diversity.

There is no nightlife in Abilene unless your idea of a fun weekend night in college is playing board games with your friends in the dorm.

When the wifi is working, the computers are great. There are many available in the library. While I enjoy having my own so I can study and type papers at any location, it is not necessary. Many students take notes on their iPads. The printing is 10 cents a page, but you are given 15 dollars a semester that you are only able to use for that, so definitely take advantage! The wifi, however, is kind of unreliable. It usually gets fixed within a couple hours, but when it is down, I have had problems loading my student account which is extremely inconvenient.

Varsity sports are alright. People go to games to fill the time because there is nothing else to do, but honestly there's not much school spirit. For example, half of the student section got up and left at halftime of every football game, including homecoming.

I have not been happy here, and am transferring next year. The small campus size is nice as far as proximity to classes (I never woke up before 7:40 for my 8 am), and the professors are easy to talk to and willing to help. Other than that, however, there's not many benefits of going here. The tuition is extremely high, the majority of people are hypocritical Christians and extremely judgmental, and there are so many rules. No girls allowed in guys' rooms, or vice versa. Curfew for freshman is at midnight every week night, and that is not fun at all. The library closes at midnight, is overcrowded, and there is not even a designated quiet floor so I find it impossible to study. If you talk about parties and drinking a huge majority of people will look down upon you. The campus is so small and there's really never anything going on. Abilene is boring as well... a few dancing places, a bowling alley, and movie theatre, but that's about it; and you have to drive all the way across town to get anywhere. Students really don't go to athletic events at all; there is a lack of school spirit except for a few people who go to every game, but that's only because there is absolutely nothing else to do. There's no Greek life, only "social clubs" that are kind of a joke. I honestly feel like I am in high school all over again. If you want a true college experience, do not come to ACU.

The weather is really nice! A little windy, and some people from South Texas would consider it cold, but I think it's nice. You actually have seasons here. Generally between 60-80 in the fall and 30-60 in the winter.

It's not like we have drug dealers but there's definitely a way to get whatever you need
College Sophomore 2013-11-18T18:22:44Z
Cost too much especially for freshman dorms being so small but it's really close to classes. 5 min walk max
College Sophomore 2013-11-18T18:20:48Z
Not many regularly attend the games. Most that go just go for a social event.
College Sophomore 2013-11-18T18:19:15Z
There's a lot of fake people here. It's almost like this is Almost Christian University

Health & Safety:
Really safe. Cameras are in a lot of places
College Sophomore 2013-11-15T15:04:23Z
It's food and it satisfies my hunger so no complaints
College Sophomore 2013-11-15T15:03:08Z
I plan to do internship with my doctor back home
College Sophomore 2013-11-15T15:03:08Z
It's hard but it'll be work it in the end
College Sophomore 2013-11-15T15:01:38Z
There aren't too many places to choose from and all the fast food places close early
College Sophomore 2013-11-15T15:00:33Z
Don't know too much about parking. I have no car
College Sophomore 2013-11-15T14:59:25Z
Don't know to much about it due to me living on campus
College Sophomore 2013-11-15T14:57:51Z
We have free wifi and the computes are always available or laptops are available for check-out
College Sophomore 2013-11-15T14:48:01Z
Teachers help you as much as they can and will do as much as they can to help
College Sophomore 2013-11-15T14:48:00Z
It has a great nursing program and you hear all good things about it
College Sophomore 2013-11-15T14:46:44Z
It's strict but there really aren't any complaints
College Sophomore 2013-11-15T14:45:00Z
It's like a blessing in disguise because being in a boring city help me stay focused.
College Sophomore 2013-11-15T14:43:19Z
The diversity is big but not too big
Sorry, there are no reviews.
