Amy Morris ('14) | Accounting & Finance
Accounting and finance major
from Sugar Land, Texas
Students come to ACU from all sorts of different places and backgrounds, but they all undergo the same experience upon coming to ACU - the transition from high school to college. For Amy Morris, the transition from home schooling to ACU was simple.
ACU is an incredible place. You will receive a great education, but more importantly you'll become part of the family here. ACU is small enough that you cannot go anywhere without seeing a familiar face, but large enough to offer a competitive education. For me, it has been the perfect combination.
"The transition was not as difficult as I expected. I felt very prepared academically coming to ACU," Amy says. "Through home schooling, I had developed a strong work ethic and lots of self discipline."
As a home-schooled student, Amy's parents taught her the immense value of a Christ-centered education, with an emphasis on building true relationships. Amy believes ACU fosters the same type environment, making her transition to college even smoother.
"A lot of the values that homeschoolers hold are the same values that ACU tries to implement," Amy says. "My parents wanted me to get a Christ-centered education and wanted family to be a big part of my life growing up. At ACU, the same values are encouraged and sought after."
Relationships are important to Amy, and that is ultimately why she choose to come to ACU. Her final decision where she wanted to go to school was difficult, but she saw an opportunity to build intimate relationships on a smaller campus with like-minded individuals.
At ACU, Amy has learned to make her beliefs her own, becoming a well-versed apologetic for her faith. She believes ACU has helped her develop an even deeper relationship with Christ, all the while receiving a world-class education. The decision to attend ACU proved to be the right one for Amy.
"ACU is an incredible place. You will receive a great education, but more importantly you'll become part of the family here. ACU is small enough that you cannot go anywhere without seeing a familiar face, but large enough to offer a competitive education. For me, it has been the perfect combination."
