You are about to embark on one of the most defining journeys of your life. A time filled with dramatic transitions, exciting challenges, and endless possibilities. We at Abilene Christian University consider it a privilege and an honor to join you on this journey of who you are becoming - intellectually, socially, and spiritually.

The First-Year Program at ACU was created to help you make a successful transition to university life. We want to help you make significant and meaningful connections to all aspects of the university, and help you catch a vision of what we believe you can become. We have designed an integrated set of programs, services and experiences-both inside and outside of the classroom-to help you reach your highest levels of achievement.

We are glad that you have chosen to be a part of this community. In the words of Jeremiah 29, we know that God has "plans to give you hope and a future." May He bless your time here, as you seek His will for your life.
