Fall Travel in Admissions

Fall Travel in Admissions

As the busy travel season comes to an end for the Admissions office at ACU I want to reflect on the experiences I had while promoting our school to prospective students. Working in the Admissions office at Arizona Christian University gives me the unique opportunity to meet with a wide-range of Christian high school students. It is our job to go out and recruit the high school students who would be a good fit for ACU. We do this by attending college fairs, going on high school visits, and also hosting visit days on our campus. The fall is the busiest season of the year.  For most high school seniors, this is the time when they will make their final decisions of which school they want to apply to.  Many students apply to one or more schools before they make their final decision on which one they will attend.  For me, this busy fall recruiting season included a trip to Portland, Oregon. I grew up in Portland and moved out to Phoenix after I graduated from college.  I do miss aspects of the Northwest, but one thing I definitely do not miss is the rain! I really enjoy living in Phoenix where there are usually 300 days of sunshine a year. But I always love going on out-of-state recruiting trips, especially when they are to my hometown.  One of the best things about going on a recruiting trip, other than meeting with students who are on fire for the Lord, is being able to promote a school that I love and believe in. On my trip to Portland I...

ACU Hits Record Enrollment Again – Up 47 Percent Since 2010

ACU Hits Record Enrollment Again – Up 47 Percent Since 2010

Arizona Christian University is excited to announce record enrollment for Fall 2012 – an increase to 682 total students, up 47 percent in the past two years. Total enrollment in Fall 2006 was just 308 students, meaning ACU has more than doubled in size in the past six years at its northeast Phoenix campus. “We are thrilled that students are flocking to the opportunity in Arizona to attend an affordable, Christ-centered, non-profit university with a variety of degree programs to prepare students for leadership in our world,” said ACU President Len Munsil. “Our campus improvements, expanded academic and athletic programs, and commitment to traditional classroom instruction and mentoring of our students is drawing enormous interest locally and around the United States.” While 74 percent of ACU students are from Arizona, students come from a total of 31 states, including Alaska, Hawaii, New Jersey, New York and Florida, and eight foreign countries, including Thailand, Russia, Brazil and Uganda. More than 200 students are brand new this year at ACU. There are 516 students in the traditional undergraduate program – up 15 percent from 448 last fall — while 166 students are either in the degree completion program, or attend ACU through dual or concurrent enrollment. ACU’s growth the past two years has been fueled by increased visibility, including its name change and dinner events featuring former President George W. Bush and the Rev. Franklin Graham. In addition, every full-time ACU student receives an iPad. Last year ACU was re-accredited for the maximum 10 years and approved to offer new degree programs in biology, communication and political science. New sports include...

ACU to Host Lecture Series on the Synthesis of Science and Faith

Arizona Christian University is pleased to serve as the host campus to the Arizona Origin Science Association’s lecture series on the scientific evidence for a biblical account of creation. The symposium will feature scientists from across the United States speaking on a wide range of topics including seeing God’s design through chemistry, a six-day view of creation, and world views on the universe. The Arizona Origin Science Association (AzOSA) is an association of scientists that seek to promote creation science in churches, schools and to the general public. The association’s members include scientists from a range of fields including microbiology, zoology, mathematics, meteorology and orbital mechanics. President of AzOSA Dr. Joseph Kezele, M.D., hopes the presentations will help attendees better understand that creation is the only logical explanation for the origin of the world. Dr. Kezele, who also serves as the chairman of ACU’s biology department, stated, “This series will help ACU fulfill its mission to transform culture through biblical truth.” The lecture series is open to the public and free of charge and will meet in room 101 of the Student Activity Center at 7 p.m. on the following dates: September 19th, October 17th, November 14th, February 20th, March 20th and April 7th.
