All of us in Oklahoma want to thank you for embarrasing the 'horns from Austin.
From the global pandemic to the Texas winter storm, Abilene Christian has dealt with a lot this year. Led by Reggie Miller, the Wildcats are ready to make noise in the NCAA Tournament. #NCAATournament #MarchMadnsss
Is there going to be a watch party in San Antonio? My daughter goes there and I would like to support them. Also, my wife is a Longhorn so I need some friendly territory.
Great school
Thank you, Dr Schubert and staff for creating flexible and innovative learning. We watched as colleges across the world sent kids home, back again, and home, due to covid. Our son benefited from online courses without missing a beat, and I pray 🙏 ACU has a plan to allow its full time university students hybrid learning again in 2021. Go Wildcats!
This holiday season, more than ever, “There’s No Place Like Shalom”.
Dr. Jackson Griggs (‘99) named Waco Person of the Year.
An alumni of ACU needs your help! Dr. David Van Winkle has been wrongfully convicted of a crime that was staged by corrupt officials in Mena , Arkansas. We have irrefutable evidence of his innocence. We are going public with this because the justice system in Arkansas is broken. Some information is available at the Free Dr. Van Winkle page. We are not asking for money. Help us free a Brother in Christ from injustice. I am also an Alumni of ACU and we need your help and that of ACU. We are looking for contacts to publish via mass media the evidence obtained proving Dr. Van Winkles innocence. Please contact me now.
Good morning all! Look at the record my dad got at a garage sale today.
These two books can be purchased on Amazon for 15 dollars each. The books are amazing.

Huge thanks to Abilene Christian University Police Department, especially Officer Nalley. On my trip from Kentucky, I locked my keys in the rental truck. He was kind enough and able to unlock it so I could continue on my trip. Exemplary officer, very kind and friendly, he is a good representative for your school. Thank you again.
