4 College Senior

Parking: I don't have a car, but a lot of people get ticketed if they don't have a permit, so get a permit or walk! They have free trolleys all day from each campus, you don't need a car! Ride a bike!

4 College Senior

Scholarships: If you know how to find it, you will get a lot! I'm still trying to figure out how people do it!

Majors: I hope to get an internship next semester to hopefully figure out what I want to do in the future.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms themselves aren't impressive at all but the community is what makes the dorm life so great. Unlike other schools you actually get to know you entire hall which is about 40 other guys.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is food all around including Chick fil a, subway, habit burger, jack in the box, jersey mikes, santanas, and taco bell. There is plenty of food for late night eating especially santanas which is open 24/7. There are many student discounts especially at santanas and jersey mikes.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe at Azusa. There are always walking campus saftey walking around the campus during the night. There are students who are scared at night but i attribute that to the neighborhood they are used to being in. If anything i thing Azusa is too cautious with the students safety.

2 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The srictness at APU is alright, not too bad. The officers are friendly and some are very fun. However, when the tough gets going, they will get serious about their job.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Under no circumstances can a student be seen smoking or drinking. APU is completely strict with these issues, and could possibly end up in getting kicked out.

5 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The dining hall is very good. They try to vary the food options as much as possible. Also, the other restaurants are formal and have lots of options as well.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Very nice. Everyone has their own sense of style thus embracing diversity a little more.

Facilities: I love APU's libraries--they are convenient, quiet, and clean.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: I don't live on campus, so I can't really review the health aspect of APU. However, when it comes to safety, APU's campus safety does an excellent job of protecting the students.

4 College Junior

Transportation: Azusa Pacific is split into two separate campuses by about half a mile or so. As a result the school provides an around the clock trolley service with about 10-15 minute wait times in between. The trolley drivers are all extremely kind and dedicated to the students as well. Sometimes it can be faster to walk or ride a bike/skate board. But it just depends on the student. The distance can be a hassle as well especially when you live on campus and have a 8:00 a.m. class. For the most part, I feel like they do a good job at keeping up transportation.

Health & Safety: The school does a good job of informing students of crime and safety issues. On campus seems to be well kept, but the school itself is in a very poor neighborhood. There are a lot of crimes that take place in the area and pretty often at that. But the school does have campus safety that routinely patrols all of the sidewalks between housing and classrooms. It's more of a neighborhood issue than anything else.

Campus Housing: It truly depends which on-campus housing option you make it into. The lottery system is really awful, because such a large percentage of the students live on campus. Some of the buildings and areas have been renovated but over all, the space given per living quarter is just simply not sufficient enough for the amount of students they cram in. I lived with 2 other fair sized guys in a single bed/single bathroom apartment that we paid for and paid utilities. There just simply isn't enough room for what the school is trying to squeeze in.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics at Azusa Pacific have obviously taken on a new type of recognition. Moving from the NAIA to NCAA DII is no easy feat. It says a lot about the caliber of the sports programs at this establishment.

Campus Dining: Azusa Pacific does a good job with providing a decent array of food options. However, meal plans can be rather costly depending on the amount of meals you purchase. They try and cut you a deal with the bigger plan you purchase, but it's still pricey. They offer a dining hall with an all you can eat style which is nice if you are starving. They also offer Mexican and Sushi as well as some other cafe style options. It's hard to get sick of the same food which is nice.

Majors: I am a psychology major at my school. I have to say that the classes are indeed interesting and compelling. However I believe they are understaffed by means of full time professors. I have had all adjuncts since in my major since I declared it. The frustrating part about that is that my only form of contact with my professors outside of class is through email, since they teach two to three times out of the week.

3 College Junior

Transportation: The campus trolleys are really nice. There's three or four of them that go from east to west campus

5 College Senior

Majors: I thought APU was going to be difficult to get in. In comparison to UCR, APU was not as strict in terms of admission. UCR required a student to have passed all the CSET exams to be admitted into their credential program and required letters of recommendation from previous professors. For me, I have not been to school in almost 8 years, so to get a recommendation from previous professors was challenging. At APU, they admitted you as long as you complete the CSET by a certain date, which I did, and the letters of recommendation could be from previous employers or volunteer groups. Basically someone who us unrelated to you and has seen you work with kids. The application process is easy and APU is quick to respond.

5 College Senior

Majors: So far I am happy with the program. I think for me, since I am not a religious person, the setback is that the school implements prayer in the discussion. But after the first quarter you come to appreciate students thoughtful prayers and it actually is a good thing. If I would do it over again, I would. My career goal is to be a behavior consultant for school districts. I specifically want to focus on Autism.

5 College Senior

Majors: The moderate to severe special education credential with a masters is a great program. I like that fact that it takes 2 years to complete and things move quick. The professors so far are helpful and are willing to work with you in terms of turning in assignments on time or missing assignments. The work load is on a weekly basis. Assignments are due at the end of the week and professors give good feedback on projects. The only thing I'm concerned about is the unpaid internship that comes with all teaching programs.

4 College Senior

Majors: I will be student teaching this Fall. My main concern is unpaid internship. I won't be paid for the internship program and to support my family this will be hard. Responsibilities include: creating lesson plans, grading papers, work on behavior support plans, and IEPs. My credential is moderate to severe special education. I hope to have my classroom and be able to support my family.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Love the school spirit at APU. There's a blackout crew that gets the crowd pumped at games. APU's football team is doing pretty well, as well as their track and field from what I hear.

Weather: I moved to SoCal to get more warmth and sun, and that's exactly what you get at Azusa. September-October can get really hot. It rarely rains, in November-December it gets colder at night, but the weather ranges from high 60, 70-80's most days.
