College Advice - What should I look for in choosing a college?:
When choosing a college, look for a place where you can fit in. If you find a place where you feel that you can fit in, academically, spiritually and socially, then you have found a place you can call home for what may be the best four years of your life.

College Advice - If there is one thing you should not pass up in college, it would be: 
Get involved! Whether you get involved by studying abroad, joining a social club, working outside the classroom with professors or all three, make sure you get the most out of your college experience by getting involved.

College Advice - If I could give you one way I believe ACU changes a student's life, it would be: 
ACU changes a student's life through the connections made while pursuing a degree. Connecting with professors, connecting with classmates and connecting with God while at ACU changes a student's life.
