Dine on Campus

Whether you need to grab a bite between classes or look forward to a meal with friends, ACU has food options that fit every schedule and preference. Beyond our residential dining hall, The World Famous Bean, you can dine in (or dine out!) at Einstein Bros Bagels, Chick-fil-A, Starbucks and other local and national hotspots.

Cultural Diversity

We celebrate the artistry of God’s creation as it manifests in our cultural, social and spiritual diversity at ACU. Through student organizations and the Office of Multicultural Affairs, we empower students of all backgrounds to experience their potential and engage in cross-cultural learning.

Safety and Security on Campus

Your safety is our priority at ACU. Our ACU Police Department is a fully functional law enforcement agency serving ACU and the surrounding off-campus areas, operating 24/7. Our alert text messaging system will update you on potential dangers, including weather alerts and other safety issues.
