“Community” is the word students use to describe life at ACU. The environment is dynamic, welcoming, and includes a variety of activities beyond the classroom. Students develop meaningful relationships through residence life or student activities and grow in their Christian faith through on-campus chapel, spiritual and leadership development, and service programs.
You won’t be lost in a crowd at Arizona Christian University. Students develop long-lasting relationships through community building experiences such as small group Bible studies, academic study groups, on-campus worship, athletic events and more.
