Originally founded as the Childers Classical Institute, Abilene Christian University is a 4-year Christian institution in west Texas affiliated with the Churches of Christ. ACU confers bachelor’s degrees in over 70 academic majors with a focus on preparing students for Christian service. As a Christian university, ACU holds daily chapel services at Moody Coliseum supplemented by Small Group Chapels and Departmental Chapels. For recreation, Abilene Christian hosts a number of intramural sports leagues including Rodeo and Esports.
ACU provides a loving environment, exceptional professors, and a well of student resources. In my 4 years at this university, I have been overwhelmed with the amount of love and cohesiveness in this community; we really are the ACU family, and people are always willing to help you with anything. Yet the attention to faith and community doesn't sacrifice high-quality education either - although, as a private university, ACU is expensive, you truly get what you pay for.

Abilene Christian University is a really great school to attend if you really want to pursue a higher education while still staying true to your Christian faith. It's on the pricey side but it's not impossible to manage. ACU has great faculty and very friendly people.
