Perhaps you have been asking yourself these questions

What is Wildcat Week?

Wildcat Week is an extended orientation experience designed to prepare students for their transition to Abilene Christian University. It is an exciting experience for all new students that encourages you to engage in the Wildcat community. During Wildcat Week, you will build friendships with future classmates while experiencing the traditions of ACU, learning what it truly means to be a Wildcat.

How do I register?

Wildcat Week registration happens in person, on August 18th from 11am - 6pm in the Campus Center Living Room. Have fun saying a temporary goodbye to your parents; this is a student-only event.

Are transfer students required to attend?

Where is Wildcat Week?

Wildcat Week takes place on campus and all over the Abilene area. ACU realizes that we leave an incredibly beneficial footprint on the city of Abilene.

How are groups decided?

Wildcat groups are designated according to your Cornerstone class. This will not only be your group for Wildcat Week, but these students will be your classmates for the 1st semester. Your group will consist of 30 new students and 5 upperclassmen (a Peer Leader, a Residence Assistant and 3 Wildcat Leaders). Together, your group will be eating meals, discussing the essentials of college life, and participating in fun activities. This also means you won’t be able to request to be in the same group as some of your friends, so enjoy getting to meet your fellow Wildcat classmates.
