CI' "Whether it's your relationship with God, with your family, with . . ". . . students are always saying that if they don't find someone to marry I, ..- 122 f Perspectives '85 ctives rom the time a person is a freshman until his graduation, he would have encountered thousands of people through ACU. With each one some type of relationship was formed, whether it was merely social or deeply personal. The one thing people had always recalled about ACU was the relationships they had. "Relationships are the most important things in life," said senior Rob Sellers. "Whether it's your relationship with God, with your family, with your spouse or with your peers." Those friendships made with peers were a great deal of what ACU was all about. To be able to sit in the hall of a dormitory or on a bench outside the Campus Center and talk about the problems and joys that were playing a ma- jor role in your life was something you couldn't learn in a classroom. That had to be experienced. Memories of such special relationships had stayed with graduates throughout their lives. junior Susan Welch said, "College is a time for building important relationships and continuing those relationships throughout life." Some students may not have found those special relationships when they first arrived at ACU. As sophomore Carmen Scarbrough said, . . l didn't find my best friend until this year." Carmen said people should be cautious in picking their best friends. "You must be careful when you choose that best friend. They should be someone who will back you up . . . someone who has the same standards as you." Relationships were a reason for junior Sally Cole to go to college. "Mak- ing new relationships is one of the main reasons why someone should decide to go to college," said Sally. "It gives them the chance to get to know themselves as well as others." Learning through those relationships was a part of the education that students got while attending ACU. Deciding to come to ACU was a "good opportunity," said junior Cathy Brammer, . . cause you're forced into a situation where you have to meet people. But the friends you make will be lifetime friends." "Lifetime friends" kept springing up in conversations. A certain amount of security was felt in knowing people would always be around for you to get together to laugh and cry with, no matter how old you got. No doubt in years after students left school, their first thoughts of ACU wouldn't be of a required class, but of relationships they would held special in their hearts. n a society where the divorce rate had sky-rocketed in the last decade. many students questioned the need of getting married. For many it was a goal to be married before or right after college, and at ACU, the pressure of finding that one and only while at a Christian institu- tion was very prevalent. Students were questioned by friends, relatives and even teachers, "Are you going to find someone before you leave college?" Many students fought the pressure, others may not have actually gotten married because of the pressure, but they did get married. Senior Lisa Yearwood believed that "marriage at ACU is pushed too much. The teachers stress marriage and getting married in their classes, and students are always saying that if they don't find someone to marry at ACU, they will never get married."
