there are quite a few places to go and do homework, but most of the time they are very packed because of the amount of students on campus. One downfall is that the library could use a face lift.

the off-campus housing is very minimal, but there are apartment complexes right across/next to the school. I would definitely recommend the dorms on campus though.

The dorms are definitely a great plus to this school! Very modern. Very clean. It was a enjoyable experience.

There are a lot of options to do at night. Such as hall events, hanging out with friends etc.

Guys & Girls:
Decent Group of Students – This school is known for students getting married. Everyone is friendly and a good group of people. There are a good group of attractive people here who are mostly the athletes. But since it is a Christian School, there is more modesty involved. The social life can be a bit boring since there is only neighborhood surrounding the area but if one meets the right people, there is always fun around the corner.

The internet is always having problems. The Wifi is almost never working. There are only about 10 computers in the computer lab, so finals time is really hard. We have a computer lab upstairs, but there are also classes going on.

This Is a Christian School – This is a Christian university, so if there are different orientations, beliefs, political stands, it causes a lot of tension between people as well as gossip.

Teachers Care – Right now, I'm at Arizona Christian University, but I am transferring to Grand Canyon next semester. However, at ACU, since the classes are relatively small, a student will really feel like the teacher cares about him/ her and his/ her future. It is nice being able to simply email the teachers when in need, or to be able to talk to them after class.

Christian Ministries – I just changed my major to Christian Ministries, but I know the teachers, and they are very intelligent in their studies.

Good Education – The classes are thought provoking and really help students strive to impact the future very positively with information learned.

Health & Safety:
Safe and Sound – Great protection not a good fitness center though. small gym.

Many to Use – There are many computers to use at Arizona Christian University, quantity is not the problem. The only thing that could be improved is the quality of the software on the computers themselves.

Small Town Feel – College feels like a small community in a big city

The weather in Phoenix is great for most of the school year. The summers are a little rough, but fall, winter, and spring is next to perfect!

It is somewhat difficult to live off campus at ACU because it is hard to convince the staff to allow it. They want to protect their students in any way possible; however, there is a large portion of the student body that does not live on campus for a number of reasons.
Recent Alumnus 2012-04-02T18:30:22Z
ACU is a place where students can come and develop among peers in a positive and uplifting manner. I personally know many members of the student body. As a matter of fact, as I'm sitting in the library I've had a minimum of 20 students walk that I know on a personal level. The genuine nature of my classmates is refreshing. Being a part of leadership now, we are striving to build up community in a way never-before seen.

The parking lot is pretty much always full, but there is no need to park close to a building or drive around looking for class, as our school is a total of five buildings. It's very practical.

Paradise Valley: Reality? I have lived in Arizona all my life. I have had the priviledge of experiencing many of the smaller cites within the greater Phoenix area. The school that I attend is located at the boarder of Phoenix and Paradise Valley, Arizona. Located in such an area can be of both convenience and inconvenience. Just to the west of our lovely little school there are "mountains", or as most out-of-state people would call them, giant hills. Paradise Valley Mall is located to the east of us, but requires a minor drive. Although we live in a huge city with so many attractions to choose from, they are not necessarily located nearby for vibrant college life. In order to enjoy everything Arizona offers, such as the downtown museums and sports complexes, much planning, preparation, and money are required.

Strictness Is Quite Ridiculous – The school is pretty strict. We have a slight dress code for the length of shorts and spaghetti straps. The dorms are closed to opposite sexes, unless its one of the 4 nights in the week it's open from 6pm-10pm. They are not lenient whatsoever on skipping classes. If you miss 4 in one class, it is an automatic letter drop off your grade.

The dorm life at Arizona Christian University is decent. The second and third floors are "suites" that are shared between six people. There are half kitchens in every suite that don't include stoves, but have refrigerators, sinks and microwaves in every room. The first floors, however, are much nicer. Each room has a full kitchen, walk in closet, full bathroom and is shared between two people. Each lobby has a different function, but they are only open until 2am.

Business Administration – The school is extremely helpful. The professors and the head department chairs are always available to discuss your course plan. They provide tons of opportunities to attain internships or anything along those lines. The workload is decent; they really prepare you for your future career.

Bring a Car – Phoenix busing is awesome because the streets are set up in an easy roadmap situation. If you need to get somewhere, chances are that a bus will be able to bring you right in front of the building. However, with the economy tumbling, the bus prices have gone up quite a bit. Therefore, I would recommend getting a vehicle while attending.
College Junior 2011-12-05T22:15:15Z
Wouldn't Suggest It – The only reason I would vote "no" with off-campus housing is that you have to be 22 to live off-campus without a parent, and it would be a little pricy. The area is just south of Scottsdale, and just north of a not-so-good part of downtown Phoenix. On-campus is probably the best choice. The suites are amazing and roomy, the beds are comfortable, and there are two showers in each room as well as a fridge, microwave oven, and a toaster. On-campus is affordable and feels like an apartment anyhow.

General Compus Aesthetics – Arizona Christian University (formerly Southwestern College) has an amazing atmosphere all around. Being a smaller-scale school, the community is fantastic. No matter what, people are going to support you, uplift you, and push you to do your absolute best. The availability for places to study/computer space may be limited, but it's well worth it to attend the school. Also, the school is located in the heart of Phoenix. There is a mall ten minutes away, as well as many restaurants, and a gas station right up the road with the best prices in the area. Many discounts with the ACU student ID, too! Definite plus, and I would recommend this school to anyone!
Sorry, there are no reviews.
