Students are often skeptical of attending smaller universities, preferring to apply to the so-called “Top 100 Universities” in the United States. These ACU students are proof that attending a “prestigious” university is not the only way to become excellent in your field of study.

Abilene Christian University is a private Christian University located in Abilene, Texas and boasts the biggest international student population of all ELI 360's partner universities.

Students majoring in Physics at Abilene Christian University over the past ten years have had the opportunity to be part of the university’s Nuclear Physics Research Team, which collaborates with the Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York.

Brookhaven is ranked as the number one research lab in the world based on the number of research papers published and the number of citations. These rankings give proof to the reliability of the research done at the facility, which makes it even more impressive that ACU students have been responsible for a substantial amount of research work conducted at Brookhaven in the past ten years.

ELI 360 would like to congratulate these students at ACU on their success. These students are great examples of how international students looking for a university should seek out institutions that have strong academic backgrounds; whilst at the same time emphasizes the need for hands-on experience. Attending a small private university in America does not mean you are left out or left behind compared to your peers. As a matter of fact, it often equates to more opportunities for personal development – both academically and professionally.
