The immense success ACU athletes find on the field is equaled only by their prowess in the classroom. Wildcat golf star Adam Carpenter is one of the twenty student athletes with 4.0 grade point averages who made the 2010-11 Lone Star Conference Commissioner’s Honor Roll – more than any other school in the conference. Count ACU Athletic Director Jared Mosley among those touting the success of his scholarly Wildcats.

“Our coaches do an outstanding job of recruiting student-athletes who fit the academic profile of the institution,” Mosley said. “They work extremely hard to find not only those that are athletically gifted in their particular sport, but they truly seek to find students who will fit in at ACU and benefit from the education they will receive here.” More »

Brenna Ellison came to ACU because of a family connection and a phone call.

Her grandfather and great-great-uncle both attended ACU. That family connection resonated deeply with Brenna, and when she got a phone call from Dr. Foy Mills in the Agriculture and Environmental Sciences Department, it cemented her interest. She says the four years she spent in Abilene helped define what she believes, who she is and what she’s doing now.
