4 College Freshman

Majors: I am currently a freshman and do not have an intern. I am not concerned about having an intern before graduation. The department requires students to take a internship as a required class. The department itself connects the student to the internship. There are also opportunities and resources on campus that connect the student to other companies for internships outside of campus.

Majors: The psychology department at Azusa Pacific University is one of the best departments on this campus. The members on the board of the psychology department are all recognized professors at this college. They take the time to engage students in the practice. From what I understand, the work load is light the first year and becomes more challenging into your college career. There are a lot of prerequisites in this program and all classes must be taken in order. Around Junior and Senior year students begin studying research methods and internships. So far it is going well for me.

Off-Campus Housing: The off. Campus housing your soph year is pretty decent. It still close to campus and safe

Health & Safety: I have always felt really safe on campus. There are always campus security avaliable at all times, and are keeping the students informed about what is happennig around or on-campus that isn't safe.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: Usually very nice and pretty, it can get hot though.

5 College Senior

Academics: Class sizes are small so it's easier to get to know the profs better and they definitely help out.

5 College Senior

Academics: Our BSW program is one of the best and it definitely prepares you for Master's program. Many students go on to get full ride scholarships at top schools around the country.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: APU offers almost every kind of sport, some teams doing better than others. The athletes and coaches are some of the most inspired people I've ever known!

College Freshman

Greek Life: No Greek here - and to be honest, the sisterhood I have with my roommates and the others in my hall are just as good, maybe even better!

5 College Freshman

Weather: Beautiful weather! You can get to the mountains and the beach in the same day!

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: It is visible only because we know it happens just off campus. Hiding drugs doesn't seem like it would be that hard and because our campus safety isn't allowed to search rooms or cars, there isn't much campus safety can do, unless one is intoxicated or high while talking to them, in which they would call the police. The most common drug is just smoking though, and it really depends on who a person hangs out with most or knows.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: There are many people at APU and so many different races. It is a Christian university so it does lean towards a Christian majority where the student population is concerned, but APU is not closed off to people of other religions. APU also has a well-rounded and varied group of international students. Getting to know people from completely different backgrounds than my own has given me different perspectives on how this world works and other cultures.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I did not recieve financial aid from my school yet. I was not very proactive when it came down to it so I would suggest that you look into it all you can.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Our campus safety is a large department that definitely has a strong and positive presence on campus. There are shuttles at night to take you where you need to go, and campus safety provides escorts if you feel unsafe walking anywhere. Everywhere is well lit at night, and I always feel safe on campus.

4 College Freshman

Computers: There are plenty of computers to use in APU's three libraries. Wireless internet is available everywhere on campus, and is almost always fast. I would recommend having a personal printer, but it's definitely not necessary for there are multiple printers in each of the libraries and it is cheap to print on these.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: APU's resident life staff do an awesome job of pairing you with people that you will live well with. All of the dorms are unique and offer a great family-like community where everyone can really feel at home.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I am a music major and I absolutely love the music program. I am not currently not involved in an internship. If you want an internship, I think (i may be mistaken) that you are on your own to find opportunities for internships. Something that would be nice is if there was a University run website with internship positions around campus.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: I am not a partier and I am underage therefore I will not speak to parties or bars/clubs.
Azusa does not have a lot of options for nightlife. There are many eating options within walking distance from campus that you can go get a bite with your friends. There is also a theatre across the street which is a great evening option for fun. However, most nightlife is either done on campus or is more of a drive to get to. Weekends are pretty dead on campus because everyone leaves to go somewhere off campus to have fun.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Most of the parking that is not living area parking is over on West Campus which is a bummer because you have to walk all the way over there to get your car. Parking is also a bit on the pricey side.

Campus Dining: APU gets a lot of heat because our caf food isn't known to move mountains like Biola's caf food. However, I would like to point out that we have a huge variety of places to eat on campus. Also, the food on West Campus is generally great, with both Heritage and Sam's Subs and now the sushi line. Best to go during actual class times and not in between classes, but you can make a quick stop into the "quick" food places on each campus if you do! East Campus has BBQ food, Mexican food, the caf, Cougar Den with pizza and sandwiches and more and a coffeeshop. Overall, we have a lot of places to choose from. The only problem is how little is open on the weekend but it isn't too awful. Use up those meals though! They take longer to use than you think!

Diversity: There is a lot of diversity at APU; however, you don't really see it unless you are at a coffeehouse event specifically for that ethnic group. As an african-american student, I only see the rest of the 4% of black students when I am at Black Student's Association coffeehouses. If I hadn't joined my school's step team, I wouldn't have as many black friends as I have now. This is a medium sized private school in Southern California in LA County so we're as diverse as we can possibly be I guess.

Scholarships: I received the Dean's Scholarship with my acceptance to APU. When I spoke to my admission's counselor she helped me to get an APU grant, which helped. The school itself is really good about having grants and scholarships that are attainable to their students.

3 College Junior

Computers: The computers are pretty much up to date. They all work very well and have fast internet. I usually go to the computer lab in the morning and it isn't very crowded. I think it is more convenient to have a personal computer because you can use it wherever you want whenever you want, but if you don't have one, the computers on campus are always there. As far as printing, you need to have money that is transferred to your school account in order to use to printers. If you do not have money on your card, you cannot pay for the printer, even if you have cash on you. I find this to be a problem because in order for you to put money on your account you have to go to a special office where they deal with finances and you fill out a form to have money put in.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: My experience was a positive one for the most part. I was very good at communicating with my financial aid counselor so that I knew what to do. I would highly recommend going to your financial aid counselor whenever you have questions and at the same time asking a lot of questions yourself. During the first year of college, the financial aid counselors are very good and alerting students about their upcoming payments and other vital financial aid information. After the first year is over though, they are no longer babying you giving you updates about your finances, so you have to be assertive and make the effort to contact them or else you might miss something that was important.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I've always felt safe on campus. Depending on the location of your classes, some students have to travel from campus to campus and also if they want to go to a different library. When it is late at night, campus safety will pick you up and take you from campus to campus so you won't have to walk in the streets. Also, whenever there is some kind of an event that could have caused harm to someone, they always send emails to the student body about what is going on that we can be aware.
