How do I use a computer to make digital entertainment? What does it mean to be a good Christian? All of these questions can be answered in one of the ten colleges and schools offered at ACU, which give faith and learning equal importance and attention. Sports also become something of a religion for people at ACU, since coming out for a football or basketball game is a ritual that many will not miss.
