    I have not attended ACU but I have read many positive comments about it and it's food and dining.

    I live with my parents nearby, so I don't use the meal plan or cafeteria, but the food in the cafeteria seems to be better than the nearby school Hardin-Simmons. ACU also has a food court, which is helpful when I can't bring my own food (I'm frugal), and I understand the restaurants are on the meal plan.

    ACU provides a variety of food at different times throughout the day. They have food that is available all day. Which means that if you have a crazy schedule you can always get food.

    The World Famous Bean serves a wide variety of foods and tries to make sure that they are addressing everyone's wants and needs. There are many different stations ranging from pizza to waffle machines as well as a fully stocked salad bar and sandwich line where you can have wraps, a croissant or a ham and cheese. It may not be a 5 star restaurant, but it surely does the job!

    ACU dining is a step up from most college or university dining. There is the World Famous Bean which is a cafeteria on steroids. Good food is served from 6 am - 11pm. The Bean has over 100 different options each day and the staff is always friendly and willing to help you find what you need.

    The beans yummy and always has a variety of food but a lot of stations close early and you'll eventually get tired of the food.

    There's not much dining here since the town is on the small side. All the best restaurants are on the other side of town. Which is a downer because not everyone has a car. The cafeteria food is an upgrade from high-school food. But again, because the students pay so much, food options should be expanded. Variety and location choices need to be added drastically.

    There is no Greek life on campus. ACU prides itself on having created it's own clubs and organizations. That are all student lead.

    Social Clubs. You can pledge one of these clubs in a 5 week process starting the fall semester of your sophomore year.

    There is no Greek life, because it's not christian friendly. Which is think is horrible, so what. We're all sinners, you're not pure, no one will ever be. Greek life shouldn't be looked down upon on.

    We do have social clubs even though we are not technically associated with the Greek system. So if you're looking for a sorority or a fraternity, you don't have to look too far.

    I probably will not pledge, but pledging is not allowed until sophomore year. I think this is really great to allow freshmen some time to grow on their own and manage their own time before becoming a part of a club.

    While we do not have Panhellenic Greek life, we do have social clubs. Social clubs are much like sororities and fraternities, but they are Christ-centered and they are more like a very close family then anything else. You do have to go to rushes and you have to go through pledging to be in one, but it is 100% worth it.
