Graduate Student Life at ACU

One of the most rewarding aspects of attending a residential graduate school is the opportunity to be part of a vibrant, welcoming, Christ-centered community where you’ll form lasting friendships and participate in time-honored ACU traditions. 

Take a break from the demands of graduate school coursework with intramural sports, free movies, barbecues, lectures, community service, attending Wildcats athletics events, and other activities specific to your area of study. Also, you’re automatically a part of the Graduate Student Association, a group that offers monthly events, including pizza lunches and a winter banquet. 

Graduate and doctoral students, single and married, live on or near campus, including at University Park, an amenity-filled apartment community. You’ll have plenty of places to grab a meal and access to the campus recreation and wellness center. The city of Abilene offers shopping, cultural attractions, dining establishments and entertainment venues. 

Consider ACU your home-away-from-home during your graduate studies. You’ll love living and learning here.
