    the food is decent. the staff at the bean is friendly. there are amazing cookies. the food court has excellent options (chick-fil-a, pizza hut, einsteins bagel bros.) and the starbucks in the library has great service. the bean bucks will be useful for any food purchases made in the food court, starbucks, the other cafes on campus, or the school store.

    The most popular fast food restaurant on campus is Chick-fil-a. The rest are Pizza Hut, Quizno's and Einstein's. The Bean (cafeteria) has pretty good tasting food and usually has something new every visit but only if you go during lunch and dinner time. Other times, when it's not that busy, you will constantly see burgers, hot dogs and sandwiches.

    There are plenty of food choices on campus including: Chik-fil-a, Einsteins, Pizza Hut, and Quiznos. The Bean is the main food choice for many. It is open 7 days a week although the hours are shorter on the weekends. The Bean offers a variety of different foods which change everyday, except for the grill and salad bar, but there are always vegetarian options. Bean bucks are given with each meal plan and can be spent are any of the restaurants on campus as well as in the campus store.

    The Bean (the cafeteria) has TONS of options and a lot of it is homemade. The food court is great but a little pricey.

    The Bean is nice, but don't let its title as the World Famous Bean get you too excited. There isn't too much variety in the food and I hear it gets old after a while.

    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.

    like any school there are requirements to be in "greek life." acu does not call there social clubs "sororities" or "fraternities." there are 12 social clubs. 6 for men and 6 for women.

    We don't have fraternities and sororities, but we do have men's and women's social clubs which are practically the same thing except that they can't have an official club house.

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

    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.
