ACU Students Visit the Grand Canyon

ACU Students Visit the Grand Canyon

On Saturday, October 3, ACU students in Dr. Kezele’s BIO/BIB 385 Creation Apologetics class went to the Grand Canyon for a day of fun, fellowship, hiking, and learning. This is the second Grand Canyon trip Dr. Kezele has arranged for his ACU students, but thanks to feedback from students who went on the first trip, this time the trip included a hike down the world-famous Bright Angel Trail. The all-day trip started at 6:30 a.m. when the group departed ACU and headed to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Along the way, Jim Clarke (“resident geologist” for Arizona Origins Science Association) discussed several canyon formation theories and pointed out many interesting geologic features. The group hiked three miles on the Bright Angel Trail, down to the 1½ mile rest house and back. Less than a mile down the trail, some of the Canyon’s majestic bighorn sheep made a surprise appearance. (Actual photo from the trip!) On the trail, students saw pictographs and fossils (including tracks), with a lot of opportunities for photos. In the photo, Dr. Kezele and students examine fossil sponges and other fossils in the Kaibab Limestone. After the hike, everyone stopped for ice cream at the Bright Angel Lodge Patio. Students had time to relax, shop, and further enjoy canyon views. On the way out of the Park, more wildlife came into view including several elk and deer. For one student, it was his first time to ever see the Grand Canyon. Here’s what some of the students (past and/or current) had to say about the trip: “The best part about the trip was hiking around... read more
ACU Reaches New All-Time High for Enrollment…Again!

ACU Reaches New All-Time High for Enrollment…Again!

Defying national trends of declining enrollment, particularly at small colleges, Arizona Christian University reached record enrollment again this fall with a 6 percent increase over fall 2014. “While we are blessed by this continued growth, we are even more excited about the quality of our educational product and the consistent and authentic Christian community we are able to provide at ACU,” said President Len Munsil. “Our students will not get lost in a crowd of tens of thousands of students, and our small class sizes enable us to focus on bringing out each student’s best – educationally and spiritually.” Arizona Christian University is the only Christian college in Arizona listed among the top 50 in the nation, and was also noted by Business Insider for being the most selective college of any kind in the state of Arizona, putting ACU on a list with numerous Ivy League schools. Remaining faithful to its Bible college heritage, ACU is the only accredited Christian university in Arizona that provides all students with 18 hours of Bible instruction, two chapels each week and spiritual formation accountability, all while embracing a Christian faith commitment for all staff, faculty, students and Trustees. “We are excited to see ACU begin to be recognized nationally for the excellence of our academic programs and the quality of our community,” President Munsil said. “Even as we grow, we expect our national reputation to increase as we remain committed to our mission of preparing Christian leaders to engage culture.” ACU’s national and international visibility is reflected in a community that features students from 31 states and 14 foreign countries.

ACU Community Response to Campus Safety

Arizona Christian University takes Campus Safety very seriously!  Campus Safety serves our community 24 hours a day, seven days a week, year round, and works in conjunction with the Phoenix Police and Fire Departments in response to campus calls for service. At ACU, some security guards are armed while others are not.  Those who are armed have been properly trained and certified in the safe and proper use of fire arms.   Off-duty law enforcement officers are also employed for special details.  Our Department of Campus Safety is trusted by our community for the protection of life, property, and promoting proactive crime and fire prevention techniques through electronic surveillance, education, and environmental design. Arizona Christian University’s Department of Campus Safety is led by Chief John Hoebee.  Chief Hoebee serves our community after retiring from a local law enforcement agency where he served honorably for 26 years.  He brings an extensive background in training, tactics, experience, and law enforcement resources to our Campus Safety program.  Chief Hoebee has provided Arizona Christian University staff and students training, training resources, and drills in Response to Active Shooter scenario, Emergency Action Plan and Response, and other safety training.  Arizona Christian University embraces and practices the Department of Homeland Security philosophy of “If You See Something Say Something!”  By working with our community, we provide a safe environment for our students and staff.
