3 College Junior

Diversity: It's hard to know; we don't have much interaction with undergraduates or master's level students

Diversity: APU is a small university and for it being small it does do a good job at being diverse. I think that if the school was advertised more in other states, there would be more diverse students interested. At least that's how this school caught my eye.

1 College Senior

Diversity: Diversity at APU varies across many boundaries. Students in classrooms will vary in ages of 18 to 60 at times but will typically be treated equally. There are campus specialty groups such as the Spectrum Club that specializes in promoting activities and dominance on the campus of the gay community which can hinder any open dialog about other lifestyle choices. For those students who may be 'of faith', you will seldom hear or see them as they only play a very small, insignificant role on campus and are rarely mentioned. The racial diversity is mostly reflective of the community at large with mostly Caucasians/white peoples being the majority. Other races are represented and, as a student, none have been treated any different, which generally is typical of Alaska.

3 College Junior

Diversity: We do have diversity, but we are a very small school so it can be harder to identify. APU has a very high tuition and it is hard for low income students to afford the classes. There is also a limited number of classes do to faculty and facility size so scheduling is not very flexible. The curriculum is primarily Earth science and liberal arts so our class body is mostly environmentally conscious liberals students.
