Sometimes Internet will just go down for 5-30 minutes. Kind of weird, but it's not too bad. The school computers are generally good all the time, though.
College Sophomore 2013-03-02T19:11:22Z
looks pretty nice, some buildings are outdated, but generally it is a beautiful campus. There are many on-campus places to hang out, and some student fellowships just off-campus which are also available. There are many activities and events planned throughout the year. Combine this with a smaller population, and campus starts to feel like family.

I am an african american student here on campus and I've counted, there are about 12 of us in total on campus out of about 1,600 students. That is just not right.

Health & Safety:
There is literally no reason to ever not feel safe here. It is in a small town and nothing happens in it. I walk around the town in the middle of the night and never have any problems
College Sophomore 2013-02-27T16:27:53Z
I received a great scholarship to be here but I know that does not work for all. If I can offer some hope though, I was never one to think I would actually win these things but I won the scholarship so go for it!

It was super easy getting into my program. Since my major is Equine Managament, I was able to come in with little knowledge and still be accepted. This specific program starts from the basics and builds up to the harder stuff; it allows you to get a feel of what it will be like to be in this field after graduation so that if you are uncomfortable with this type of major, you will know sooner rather than later to choose something different. Along with classes that actually take place in a classroom, there are also many classes that are hands on, which I personally enjoy. This type of program was relatively easy to apply for; there aren't any hoops to jump through or unexpected things to account for. People here are very accomadating and helpful.

We have chapel three times a week where you can worship and delve into the word. We mix up the styles of worship, from hymns and organ playing, to comteporary music with the student band. We also have speakers that range from all over the US, parts of the world, our faculty, and even our students; they talk about the different experiences in their life and how God has impacted them personally.
College Junior 2013-02-21T03:10:22Z
They have top-notch computers here (like Macs); our athletic centers offers different intermural sports and activities for people to get involved in; the library has three stories filled with computers, books, CDs, DVDs, periodicals, etc.; we have a mane green space where students set up projector screens to watch movies during the warmer months and where our "Legacy Games" take place; campus events range from artist series to local bands coming and jamming out with the student body; there are also things like "Last Man Standing" (Humans vs Zombies)
College Junior 2013-02-21T03:01:36Z
The school offers different things but since it is a private, christian school (which isn't bad), it doesn't offer a whole lot of options. The student council will occasionally plan fun things, there are art series, plays, music, and girls and guys can hang out in each other's rooms on Fridays. You will usually find the nightlife quiet here unless you know the right people or you go off-campus.

I would choose Asbury University Masters program all over again. Because the school is small, I believe that I got my money's worth. While I have concerns about job availability in my field in the greater Lexington area, I feel that I am equipped to handle a position in social work anywhere in the country.
Recent Alumnus 2013-02-19T16:23:18Z
Asbury's Master of Social Work program is very challenging. Professors and fellow students are a close-knit bunch as the department is small. Everyone is willing to offer help. The university has an agreement with the seminary across the street if electives are needed to complete course requirements. I have enjoyed my experience at the university and the seminary.

There is some nightlife in Lexington, but generally this does not apply to most Asbury students as it is a Wesleyan university.
College Sophomore 2013-01-31T15:35:28Z
My dorm is great, the rooms aren't that big but they are big enough. The only major problem is that the closets don't have doors and aren't that big but the rest of the dorm is lovely. We have an indoor gym and everything.
College Sophomore 2013-01-31T15:32:51Z
Among my closest friends I have a Korean, a Haitian, a Jamaican, two Americans who grew up in Africa, and three normal Americans. This shows how many different backgrounds are at this school.
College Sophomore 2013-01-31T15:26:01Z
The only reason I wouldn't give it an A+ is because the freshman parking lot is just a tiny bit too far but no big deal. There is enough room for parking, everyone is allowed to park, and I'm pretty sure permits are free.
College Junior 2013-01-25T19:10:32Z
My program is highly regarded across the nation. The workload is appropriate and completely applicable to my chosen career path.
College Junior 2013-01-25T19:07:48Z
Even though Asbury is a conservative campus, it is accepting of all types of people.
College Junior 2013-01-25T19:06:31Z
Asbury works closely with every student to help in obtaining financial aid.
College Sophomore 2013-01-24T00:36:37Z
It's pretty good. We have a wide variety of food options in the cafeteria and it changes every day. It is unlimited food, you don't need to pay by the plate. They usually have fresh fruit and meats.
College Sophomore 2013-01-24T00:30:26Z
We hang out in dorms, in the student center, in the food area. We don't get into trouble, but we do have fun. We sometimes leave campus. There aren't any bars/clubs that we go to. There is a Christian organization that provides a fun dance environment for us to have fun at, but there's no alcohol.
College Sophomore 2013-01-21T15:34:52Z
we have a pretty awesome fitness center with a pool and weight room. tennis courts are also available. The new (2010) Millers Comunications building is AMAZING!! It's pretty state-of-the-art, and a
big draw for media comm students. They also have a great psychology program, one of the top equine programs and a good, well known education program, with Asbury graduates in demand. Fith-year seniors are not discouraged.
College Sophomore 2013-01-21T15:29:25Z
I know some stuff goes on, but as I'm not a part of it, you don't really see anything going on. It's a very very safe campus. You'd probably have more trouble with some one coming from outside than any of the fellow students.
College Sophomore 2013-01-21T15:25:18Z
It's Kentucky, so the weather here can vary a lot grom day to day. It may be 32 and sleeting oneday, and 50 and sunny the next. (No exaggeration). The whole winter is usually a little like that. Summer gets super hot. Spring and fall are really nice, and fall can feel like it lasts into December sometimes, with intermittent cold snaps. At any rate, there are may months at the beginning and end of the year where students can do their studying in warm sun on the different greens Asbury has.
College Sophomore 2013-01-21T15:17:38Z
Asbury is somewhat diverse, and they are working to make it more so. They have many nationaltitied and ethnicities represented, but they comprise a relatively small percentage of the student body.
As a Christian school, most students 'have come from Christian families and backgrounds. However, not everyone is a Christian. Most people are straight, or are working through not being straight. One thing I love about Asbury, though, is the acceptance that you feel on-campus. It's like everyone is a part of a great big family.
College Sophomore 2013-01-21T15:10:24Z
I do not personally live off-campus, so I can't tell you a lot of details. I do know that Wilmore, where Asbury is located, is a SMALL town. There are some housing options, but not a ton (all the Wilmore options will pretty much be within walking distance of campus). Also, Lexington and Nicholasville are two nearby towns with housing. Lexington is 15-45 minutes away, depending on traffic and your location. Nicholasville is more like 15-25. Lexington is pretty big, so there are lots of options and price ranges. Nicholasville is probably overall a bit cheaper, but perhaps not as nice. ********Asbury's dorms are not coed, and are really pretty nice.*****
Sorry, there are no reviews.
