Why did you choose Arlington Baptist University?

What impact did ABU have on your life?

ABU has impacted and changed my life in so many great ways! I got to walk away with lifelong friends and amazing memories. I also owe it to the education program for preparing me in becoming a teacher. Everything I know and have used in my teaching career, I learned from the amazing professors in the education department.”
