    ACU costs a lot of money. A LOT. But the classes are excellent and I feel like I learn every day, so I feel I am getting my debt's worth for it.

    ACU is very expensive but the quality of the teacher you have and how helpful they are makes it worth it. The atmosphere and the community of together as one is unbelievable astonishing. The opportunities they provide while you are in school are great but the even help you after you graduate in finding a job or continuing your education.

    If you could somehow spread the word on how we need new places to eat, new things to do, that would be great!

    College is really what you make it. While ACU is crazy expensive, I do believe that the facilities, opportunities, resources, and education that they provide you with is really worth it in the end. You have all sorts of technology at your fingertips, and even people there to teach you how to work the technology. The professors do well at integrating Christ and faith into the teaching as well as life lessons. The people here really do care about students and to me that experience is priceless.
