ACU Student Life
Join the Firestorm Community!
We embrace the size of our student body, because it creates an environment full of opportunities to connect. After your first semester, you’ll likely know someone in every class and your professors will know your name. On top of this naturally-formed community, our leadership teams strive to help students engage through campus activities and community groups. Check out our Core Commitments to find out more about ACU and what we stand for!
If you’re going to live off campus while attending ACU, there are many ways for you to get involved. You are invited to join the Student Leadership Council and help lead the campus through student and spiritual life activities. You may also choose to get involved by asking a staff or faculty member to mentor you or join a commuter small group available throughout the week. Watch for commuter lunches and quick connects as another way to meet with other students who are living off campus.
ACU seeks to develop a campus that is connected and unified in spirit and in truth, is vibrant and full of life, and provides a variety of opportunities to serve and connect with each other. The ACU Student Leadership Council’s mission is to develop leaders through providing opportunities to serve Arizona Christian University and our community. SLC seeks to connect with and unify the students, faculty, & staff through providing creative events, programs, ministry, and outreach opportunities.
Intramural sports at ACU is where the fun happens. Every Tue. And Thur. night there is a sport of the month that students are playing from dodgeball to basketball. There are also special weekend tournaments throughout the year to keep everyone involved. If you are curious about fun on campus, check out the gym!
Clubs and Organizations
Involvement in academic societies and student organizations is a wonderful way to grow in relationships with fellow students, in knowledge of your major area and future plans, and a fun way to interact with staff and faculty sponsor. Academic societies relate directly with a major or career aspiration. Another way to meet like-minded students is to join or start a club or organization. Organizations and clubs can be started by any student or group of students seeking to make an impact students and build community. If you are interested in joining a society or club, please contact the student life office.
