4 College Freshman

Administration: I've never had problems with campus security. And I appreciate the fact that if you call them after the trolley-stops running they'll pick you up from West. APU is a dry-campus so obviously drinking and drug use is prohibited. Opposite-sex visitiation hours are pretty strict too. Obviously the level of strictness depends on your RA. The RA's on my floor were very hands-off, so even though the hall may have been aware of people who broke curfew or came back drunk(for example) we just figured it was their fault if they got caught. APU's pretty much a game of not getting caught. Do what you want, just don't get caught by your RA or campus security or you will get: fined, written-up, or expelled.

Athletics: Basketball and football usually have a solid number of students in attendance(and are usually the only events that "The Zu", the student spirit section, attend). Baseball would probably have the next biggest numbers, but even then that's only a handful of people. Sports are present but they aren't necessarily a big part of the school.

Intramurals are present but not really a big deal. And the facilities are pretty nice.

Pretty much athletics are only a big deal if you make it a big deal.

Party Scene: There's plenty to do in L.A.(obviously) but very little to do in Azusa(and a majority of food places are closed after 11). A lot of people either head towards the L.A. area or stay in their living areas. The living areas occasionally put on events, and there are 4 dances put on during the year. But nightlife is pretty calm mostly consisting of hang outs, movies, and dorm visits. There are parties but they are always off campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Considering there isn't too much available to eat on-campus during the weekends, off-campus places are pretty important. There's a lot of choices, Pieology, McDonalds, Applebees, Chic Fil A, The Habit, Panda...there's a couple shopping centers near the school and the choices are varied.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: APU really pushes diversity- almost to the point where it is repetitive, however I think there is a great representation of diversity on the campus and everyone feels equally involved.

Local Area: Honestly, it's my least favorite part of APU (which I know is nothing really to do with the university). People always ask "what is there to do in Azusa?" and I've never been able to provide an answer. I don't feel safe walking around at night and there is no reason to leave campus because there is nothing to do.

2 College Freshman

Parking: Such a hassle to have to park all the way on West, and being ticketed if you didn't move your car was frustrating. We're students, shouldn't we be allowed to park on our own school campus?

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: As a freshman, night life involved hanging out in dorms, I wasn't really involved in the "party scene" so I can't really answer appropriately.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Stayed in Adams, old but BEST community and ResLife

3 College Freshman

Technology: The internet is often spotty, which can be hard

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: there is no Greek Life at APU!!

Off-Campus Dining: On a student budget, off-campus food is not ideal

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Not very involved with sports, but spirit is great

Drug Safety: I honestly have never seen it used on campus at all

Academics: I feel that when it comes to academics, Azusa Pacific is fair, however depending on the classes they're not necessarily extremely challenging. That being said, the idea that college isn't about being "informed" as it is more about being "formed" is what I feel that Azusa Pacific University does an excellent job in. Azusa definitely graduates difference makers. Internship and job opportunities are catered very well to the students and really assist in preparing students for the world outside of college.

Transportation: Waiting for the actual city bus is a hassle. We take trolleys or walk to get back and forth between campuses which is nice, and campus safety allows for night shuttles to pick you up if it is too late to walk back and forth between campuses.

Diversity: There are many different types of people all over the Seattle area.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: Seattle has an abundance of life to live city style or cruise on over to the mountains for some outdoor living. It has fresh air, decadent views of mountains and lakes, and you can see it all from the city too.

2 College Freshman

Administration: If you thought a regular university was going to be strict, image that strictness times ten because that's what it's like to go to APU. Don't do drugs because there's too much to risk if you get caught. Don't park in an area where you aren't permitted to park because you WILL get a ticket.

Technology: I think it's important to have your own computer at APU, but if you don't have one that's fine. There are plenty of computers to use in all three libraries and even in the dome. Printing in 10 cents for black ink and 50 cents for colored so it can add up. A majority of students have their own printer as well. The APU network is sometimes difficult to access but it works.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Most students tend to stay on campus for the week and go who knows where on the weekends. They general stay close unless it's a trip to disneyland or the beach.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus safety has a bad reputation for being stingy and irritating, but they're presence is all there when needed. I don't feel uncomfortable walking late at night by myself because they are multiple campus safety students walking on campus and living areas.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is a good variety of off-campus dining for APU students but some of the favorites are chipotle, pieology, jersey mike's, and the biggest one is chick-fil-a. Chick-fil-a was designed by APU students and students can use their meal plans there as well. Some other places that gain a lot of attention are Jamba Juice and Yogurtland.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorms suck in general, but I have only explored Trinity and Engstrom. Trinity has more space in the dorms and community bathrooms, but they always have some issue with fire alarms. Engstrom is smaller, but you do have a shared bathroom and I enjoyed hanging out with friends in Engstrom. I commuted so I did not live on campus. Besides the dorms, the best options for housing would go as follows: The Village, UP, Alosta, Bowles, and Mods. Do not be tricked into living in the mods! They are old, worn down, and have animal/termite problems. Bowles is usually put down because it's "far" from campus, but it is not that far. The village is the best but it is for jrs. and srs. only

Overall Experience: I absolutely love it at Azusa Pacific, but I do feel that it charges a lot of money. I feel that some of the expenses might be unnecessary but that is just my opinion. The professors are friendly and like to have a good name to name basis with their students.
