Featured Institution

Abilene Christian University

Constantly, ACU keeps looking for ways to push their students to their full potential. Tutoring classes are always offered for every situation, teachers encourage students to reach out to them for help, students create study groups, and extracurricular classes are offered to get ahead. I did not expect to achieve half of the things that I did academically at ACU, but they revealed my true ability to myself and, with their support, I amazed myself! ACU is a strong institution academically.

Bigger is better in texas

"As Texas was an independent republic until it joined the Union on December 29, 1845, as the 28th and biggest state (221 times bigger than the smallest state, Rhode Island), its treaty with USA does permit its division into as many as five states without federal approval (that would add eight more Texas Senators in US Senate!) Texans love everything that is 'big', so two attempts to split the state (in 1969 and 1991) were voted down by Texans themselves."
