For day two of my series on being thankful, I could think of nothing more fitting than the wonderful college I attended- Abilene Christian University in Abilene, Texas. ACU is a small Christian school in a pretty small town in west Texas, 1200 miles away from Denver. I would be lying if I said I didn’t have some times when I wanted to come home, but looking back on the experience I wouldn’t change it for the world.
I met some of the most amazing people in my four years there that I am still continually blessed by. The roommates I had while I was there made college the BEST- Celina, Audrey, Jessica, Taylor, and Jordan. Although many times we had what most would say were “lame” nights for college kids, the many nights we spent watching movies, baking, having silly theme parties, and just enjoying eachother will stick with me forever.
I also had some of the best professors who knew my name and really cared about my success, which is something you can’t find at a lot of schools. I also can’t really put in to words how amazing it was to have teachers who were Christians and weren’t afraid to use the bible in class. Learning about Jesus while I learned about other subjects really enriched my life in ways that I wouldn’t have found at a large state school.
I’m so blessed to have attended ACU and I thank God often for the memories I made there. 🙂
I hope you all loved college as much as I did.
