5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Making the decision to attend Azusa Pacific University was the best decision I have ever made! The experience you get cannot be compared to anything else. APU prepares you to be the best you, you can be, so that you can be effective in the Kingdom as well as in the next journey of your life. I'm so glad that there is still a school where they genuinely care about each and every student being successful!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Once a person graduates from APU, there are endless of opportunities and jobs available for them. Not only are there endless opportunities, but APU faculty has prepared each student to succeed in whatever chosen field they should choose.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: The facilities are well kept. There are a lot of activities and events that happen on campus. There is always a place open for students to hang out and enjoy.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Azusa Pacific University is located near anything and everything you can ever want or need! There are plenty of things to do outside of school. You are about 30 minutes or less from the beach, Disneyland, museums, downtown LA, and other great attractions. Every weekend I had something great to do, whether I went to a Los Angeles Lakers game, Olvera Street, the beach, or movies, I always had a great time!

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I plan to do a Marketing internship through APU's school of business. I have heard nothing but of great things about the internship program, and I am excited to be able to do it. There are many different opportunities for the internship program, so I know that it will not be hard to intern somewhere I want to.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Azusa Pacific University provides the best curriculum for their students. APU provides the very best, and they excel in excellence with their programs for study abroad, work study, and general academics. Studying at APU is such a great experience!

5 College Sophomore

Academics: APU has one of the best Business programs around! I love the all the opportunities one is offered, from the great business study abroad programs to the great business internships, studying business at APU prepares you to be successful in business.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Hmm we don't have fraternities or sororities.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Football season is big during it's season and going to watch theater is fun. The theater students are very talented and always put on interesting plays. The libraries have a normal amount of people and are always empty on weekends except during finals. It is very packed and not a good place to study. People usually drive to the beach or go do something out of the city on weekends since we're close to L.A.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The scholarships and grants that I got from the school needed no essay or applications. They basically look at your incoming gpa and sat/act scores and give you whatever aid they think you deserve.Whether or not you keep getting the aid is based on your gpa. There are a few extra scholarships through out the year that come from organizations and clubs in the school. Those do require essays and applications.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Lots of people dress like hipsters which I don't like. A lot of people care too much about their looks and people are often judged by their looks. Social life is great you just have to find the right people to mesh with. Many guys and girls are preppy but I try to avoid those for more down to earth people.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: It's like your common sports scene. The most popular sports team is the football team and fan support is great. You know your usual.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The only policies that affect you socially is that you can't be in your dorm or apartment with a friend of the opposite sex. Guys are only allowed to be in the girl dorms til 10pm on weekday and til 12am on weekends. They do round abouts but don't check everyone. They just check those that often bring their bf over all the time. In the apartments they don't really check. You do get suspended or expelled for consuming drugs or alcohol on school property. You also get expelled or suspended for plagiarism even if it just seems like it but isn't.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: We have a variety of places to go off campus and they are just across the street all in one spot. They have some fast food places, Yogurt land, Chik fil A, Italian and Mexican food. They don't have many healthy options but you can cook up a meal if you buy stuff from fresh n easy. Chik fil a sometimes gives some sort of free appetizers throughout the year if you take your school id.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus at least until 8pm. There is always someone around but late at night campus police is more spread out and the neighborhood is not the best. It is dangerous walking back from a 10 pm class when you are walking through the main parking lot though. Since it is empty people drive like crazy and enter from places they are not supposed to.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Like I mentioned before, most professors are great and it is most likely do to the small student population. Some classes have heavier work loads than other and take so much time away from your major classes. It is important to pick professors who give a reasonable amount of work. Registration isn't the best.I hate being on a waiting list. Biblical studies, psychology, music, and business are popular. Science majors, nursing, and others are less popular but the programs are actually pretty good.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I like being a science major at APU. Professors are willing to help you if you go to their office hours and ask specific questions about the material. The work load is heavy especially if you have a professor who uses mastering physics or mastering whatever it is or if they give you 20 problems for h.w. APU does have free math and physics tutoring which is also nice. Research opportunities are not hard to obtain and those really help with getting internships and jobs in the future because you have proof of actual lab experience.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The classes are great! Most professors care about your success and are willing to help if you take the time and effort to ask for advice. The specialized classes are small compared to public schools which can be good or bad. General ed.classes are still small; they are about 75 students.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: They offer a variety of help it is just hard to make time to seek these services. In the science field you can join research with professors with more ease because there are less people and it will give you experience in the lab for the future. There are lots of job opportunities and the alumni are very involved.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: At first you think you have a lot of options but then you realize you are basically eating bugers and pizzas everyday. I wished for healthier options many times but all they have are refrigerated salads with mostly lettuce. The meals are way over priced. It's about $9/meal. The freshmen meal plan is about $2,000 which is required to get if they live on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: From what I've heard the dorms are bigger than cal state dorms. There are a variety of options and housing ranges from $1596 ish - $2,500 ish a semester. However it's probably because the tuition itself is very expensive.
