Abilene Christian University Reviews
This is an amazing school. Had the best education and experience of my life. Going for a second Masters. Only "you" can make a difference to what is important to "you". The instructors are the most caring and accomplished professionals I have ever met.
The one thing I liked best about Abilene Christian University was the professors were always there to help you if you needed any help. The professors were always making sure you understood what they were teaching you before moving on to another subject.
The only thing I didn't like about Abilene Christian University was everyone, no matter what degree they were going to college for, had to take a Bible course because it was required. The Biology courses I took did help me in my future career, especially the ones that pertained to animals and nature.
Great university for teaching and preparing students for the world outside of the ACU bubble. Innovative and cutting edge. ACU faculty are extremely accessible and helpful, something not to be found at a state school. The education was great and prepares students for graduate school. A bit expensive.
The only downside was the focus on "social clubs". These clubs were similar to frats/sororities only much more obnoxious and celebrated. ACU could really do its social image a favor by ignoring these clubs. The clubs however, perform in the spring Sing Song event bringing lots of money to the school. Therefore, ACU will continue to promote social clubs because they bring money into the university.
Overall: great school!
I could have gone anywhere, and I'm glad I chose ACU. I have never received negative comments about attending ACU. Places where I have interviewed have treated ACU with respect.
ACU has played a huge part in my life. I had great friends who were a good influence. Most of my professors were a good value. I benefited from the emphasis on the spiritual. I was able to find a job quickly after graduation and was well prepared for public accounting. My understanding of the Church was expanded.
Jump into ACU. Meet as many people as you can. Get out of your confort circle and meet people who are different. Be involved in a local congregation. Go on a mission trip. Learn. Take advantage of every opportunity. When it's over...it's over...so soak up all of it you can...and you will carry it with you for life.
