Scholarships: Not the best. They could be clearer on how to go about getting financial aid.

Nightlife: There is a big community.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Its pretty fun but athletics aren't the most important part of the school.

Campus Strictness: I think for the most part campus strictness is strict in the areas is perhaps needs to be in; such as, underage drinking and drug use. Other areas may not fall under "strict," but perhaps more "intentional," about creating an atmosphere they see fit for their university.

Scholarships: Dealing with financial aid and school always has the potential to be a hassle, but school is worth it. The experience that comes throughout the journey of school is worth it. The resources are out there, if one looks persistently for them.

Off-Campus Housing: Both APU and Citrus College have provided the surrounding area with students' business, whether in the form of restaurants, shopping or apartments; thus, the option for off campus living has continued to grow as APU has continued to grow. My best recommendation would be to familiarize oneself with the area first and network, then move. Perhaps spend one semester on campus.

Drug Safety: In my experience there has not really been a "drug scene," thankfully, nor would I suppose there is one in general. Though the university is quite big and growing, it is still a private university and easy to come across knowledge such as a drug scene, which has not been an issue.

Diversity: I think APU has strived to maintain their beliefs in a bold way, while also encouraging others to do so, whether they agree with each other or not. In my experience, I consider that they have done so in a competent and respectable manner. Hence, there have been many cases of diversity, within many areas, which has provided a rich learning environment.

Athletics: Our schools athletics are growing rapidly, both the competitiveness within each sport as well as the student and community support. The energy surrounding APU's athletics is exciting and contagious, creating a desirable and fun atmosphere.

3 College Freshman

Parking: I don't own a car so I can't really review the parking. Usually the parking fills up really fast and it's a pain to look for parking. Students, most of the time, have to park on the west campus, but even then that parking can be a pain.

Local Atmosphere: There are a lot of stores and restaurants nearby that students can go to. There is no nightlife at all, so students have to find something to do on the weekends or just focus on homework. There is not much to do in Azusa at all except eat and hang out with friends.

Academics: I feel like the education is very good at APU. The professors are very knowledgeable and want to help students to succeed in life. The workload is anything from moderate to overwhelming, but it all depends on the classes that the students take.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Despite the reviews, there is diversity on campus. Although the school consists of mainly Caucasian students, there are also international students from different countries that come to school too.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are many off campus housing options. The housing is a lot nicer compared to the dorms. It's a lot cheaper to live off campus, but students have to pay for their own utilities.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I've received financial aid from the school due to my high school GPA, but I'm still in need of financial aid. Sometimes the financial aid offices ae a pain to deal with and can take a while to process the financial aid.

4 College Freshman

Weather: The weather sometimes doesn't make sense in Southern California. It could be completely cold one week, and the next week it would be blistering hot. Sometimes it's hot in winter and cold in spring. Just make sure you have an umbrella, sweater, a tank top and shorts in handy

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The school takes athletics very seriously and there are many athletes on campus. The student body is very school spirited and go to almost every sports game that is going on. Everyone supports each other.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is campus safety all over the school and they patrol the school all the time especially at night. Although there is some criminal activity that happens by the campus, no one should feel threatened or harmed on campus because it is a completely safe environment.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: There is a trolley service that takes students from one campus to another. There are also bus stops all around the school so students can go wherever they need to. It's a pain to not have a car, but it's not needed because most food places are within walking distance.
