ACU was still ACC when I started in 1970. I was 17 years old & living 400+ miles away from home for the first time. Every dorm mother, faculty & staff person helped me to adjust to college life. I met lifelong friends at ACU. My bachelor's degree in Elementary Education served me well as I completed 30 years of classroom teaching in 2007. I met my husband at ACU and our 3 sons and wives attended ACU as well. The friends I made at ACU are still like family today. I love ACU, it holds a special place in my heart.
