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.

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.

3 College Freshman

Computers: I own a laptop, so I just use my own and bring it wherever I go. There are computers available to students, but you'd have to go to the library or somewhere on campus to print or type up your essays. The wifi is pretty good, but you have to log in to it whenever you move from one router network to another. I would suggest buying your own laptop so you have access to it all the time, but it's not required if you don't want to spend money on one.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone is so friendly! The students are so full of energy and very polite. It's almost a sin to not hold the door open for someone. Everyone at the school is very attractive and everyone dresses very modestly. Overall, the student body is just great.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The campus housing is very easy to understand and there are many options to choose from. The freshmen live in the dorms, the sophomores live in the little module homes on campus or the apartments across the street, and the juniors and seniors pick the university villages or apartments. For freshmen, I would suggest living in Engstrom because it's very spacious compared to the other dorms, and there is a shared bathroom system instead of community bathrooms.

5 College Freshman

Majors: There is a wide variety of Majors to choose from. Each college professor is very intelligent and knowledgeable in their field of study. Almost everyone can get into the major of their choice, but specific majors like nursing require a little more criteria for admission.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The workload can be anywhere from manageable to overwhelming. The professors know what they are teaching and strive to help students improve in their area of study.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus safety is usually around when you need them. Anytime we want a ride late at night back from West Campus, they come pick us up. Also, the Health Center is so helpful. They have little "sick bags" that you can take when you have a cold or a fever, and when you get hurt, they are Johnny on the Spot with ice packs, braces, crutches, etc.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is everything from Indian to Japanese to Chinese to Mexican to pizza to fast food. The student discounts vary from great deals to nonexistent, but sometimes when you're a regular, they give you discounts just because they like you. The owners of smaller restaurants get to know you and your order. It feels like my own town now.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: There is a lot of great and diverse food on campus. It's not 5 stars, but there is plenty of variety. Every once in a while you get tired of food on campus, but there are many places across the street for a change a few times a semester.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: We don't have Greek life at my school, so please disregard the last two answers.
