More than 4,800 students, including about 550 graduate students, come to ACU from 50 states and 60 countries. We have a diverse and global environment, which we believe enriches student learning. Our students are served by about 200 faculty members who focus on high-quality teaching, scholarship and service. More than 90 percent of tenure-track faculty hold terminal degrees. The student/faculty ratio is less than 17:1. The faculty and administrators are actively involved as leaders and presenters in many national professional associations, and ACU is an active member of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities.|
The university offers generous merit scholarships to incoming students with exceptional academic records and demonstrated leadership skills, and ACU attracts some of the nation's brightest students who want to study in a Christian environment. Students have found that the small classes (average size is 17) taught by talented, caring faculty members provide them an advantage when they search for jobs after graduation or apply to graduate schools. Because ACU's teachers know their students so well and often serve as mentors, they are able to provide excellent references to medical schools, law schools, graduate programs and future employers.
As a residential campus, ACU is alive with activities from concerts and comedians to weeknight devotionals and poetry readings. Many students participate in intramural sports, men's and women's social clubs, Spring Break mission campaigns, and the annual Sing Song performance event. More than 90 campus organizations give students many venues for involvement and leadership. ACU also provides opportunities to study abroad in several different countries. The university is located in Abilene, Texas, an All-America City of 111,000 people with a wide variety of social, religious, athletic and cultural activities. Abilene is a safe, fun place to live Ė all the amenities without the hassles of a mega-city.
