The decision makers in my program are reluctant to make the hard decisions required of them. Rather sad.
College Sophomore 2013-11-12T09:03:30Z
The professors expect the students to do the majority of the teaching, I enjoy the independent study aspect, but wish there was more information transmission from the professors.

I met with tech support and it was totally unhelpful, nice guy, but...
College Sophomore 2013-11-12T08:59:30Z
I already had housing so I don't know what assistance they offer

Guys & Girls:
Quite an array of men and women at the university. Age range varies widely and I honestly don't see many people outside my cohort. Primarily women in their 20's in my group and only a few men, mostly older. Average people.

The campus is quite small and there are some activities availale to students but it is in need of a make over.
College Senior 2013-08-28T21:15:52Z
My school offers experiential learning opportunities that provides hands on experience for students, growing professionals who enter the workforce with knowlege and the skills necessary to be successful.

First off, Alaska is BEAUTIFUL. If you've never been here, it should definitely be on your bucket list. APU is situated in a little forested nook of Anchorage, with trails close at hand for running, skiing, or biking. The mountains are also a few minutes drive away, so if you want to go for a quick hike or ski after class, go for it! The campus is small, and everyone is pretty much on a first-name basis. It's nice, but has its drawbacks sometimes. It has a "small town" feel in a large city.
College Senior 2013-08-16T23:47:50Z
There is no Greek life at APU. There are no fraternities and no sororities. If that sounds good to you, then APU is your place. If you live on campus, there's a high chance you'll know every on-campus person's name by the end of your first semester.

APU does not help you in off-campus housing searches. However Anchorage is ripe with apartment options. Alaska is an expensive place to rent an apartment on your own, especially if you expect to maintain a full-time status at the university. I suggest you find a couple close friends and go in on rent together!
College Sophomore 2013-05-01T17:39:57Z
There are several options for living on campus after freshman year. You have the option of living in the dorms, on campus apartments, or on campus houses. The rooms are large and there's not much to complain about.
College Sophomore 2013-05-01T17:37:20Z
It depends on whether you like snow or not, I'd hope if you move to Alaska you'd like snow. The snow allows for great cross country ski trails all around campus/town. There's also always the opportunity to go sledding because the snow sticks around all winter. The summers are extremely nice. There is so much daylight and temperatures hover around the 60s and 70s.
College Sophomore 2013-05-01T17:33:02Z
Everyone is always off on an adventure. The outdoor programs puts on amazing trips that go all over Alaska from ski trips to sea kayaking to ice climbing. There are always activities going on on campus as well: movies, trips around Anchorage, coffee trips, etc.
College Sophomore 2013-05-01T17:28:10Z
Parking is free, you just have to ask for a permit and there is no shortage of parking spots. A car isn't necessary, the student ID is also a bus pass and that's how I get around town.
College Sophomore 2013-05-01T17:24:55Z
The academic support center has lots of computers that are always open and its open fairly late. The WIFI connection isn't too bad, its slow at times, but no major complaints about it.
Recent Alumnus 2013-04-28T03:37:21Z
I always feel safe on campus, and drugs are not an issue.
Recent Alumnus 2013-04-28T03:36:09Z
There is always something exciting or interesting happening on campus, close to campus, or within a reasonable vicinity to campus.
Recent Alumnus 2013-04-28T03:34:35Z
I live off campus, but I hear life on campus is affordable, fun, and always something to do.

Guys & Girls:
The guys and girls attending APU are very friendly and diverse. Students from all over the country travel to APU for their amazing outdoor science program. APU's students range from fresh out of high school to the working professional who has decided to go back to school. Regardless of age, all are accepted as APU emphasizes diversity and acceptance on their campus.
College Junior 2013-04-04T03:33:46Z
Fair amount of available majors in the primary fields, but lacks a few that I would deem as essential, however options and alternatives are offered.
College Junior 2013-04-04T03:31:36Z
A wide variety of available computer and equipment at each student disposal, with free printing and both Mac and Windows options available.
College Junior 2013-04-04T03:29:09Z
Guys & Girls:
Smart, well dressed, and almost everyone is into outdoor adventure in one form or another.

Parking on campus is not an issue at all. Parking on campus is free for APU staff, faculty, and students, which is a relief. There is always available parking on campus, there is never a need to have to park off campus because there was no parking. There is no use for a car on campus as the campus is pretty small and everything is walking distance. A car is needed to go off campus and do grocery shopping or to just explore the city. Though the bus system is pretty convenient because it runs everyday, it is free for students, and it stops in front of the school. The school also provides shuttles every now and then to take students where they need to go as in shopping for personal needs.
College Sophomore 2013-04-02T19:24:37Z
My financial aid process experience wasn't too bad, even though I didn't get all the money I needed to pay for my tuition. APU was really good about helping me find scholarships and other funds in order to help me pay for college. If it wasn't for the help and the scholarships I received for my first year I don't think I would be attending this school. I do suggest that the financial aid adviser meet with the students, to make sure that the students are on the right track and make sure that all the documents are submitted properly and on time.
College Sophomore 2013-04-02T19:11:33Z
The weather hasn't been a big problem in the time that I have been here at APU. The school has done a good job of knowing when the trails are safe to walk on and when they aren't. Knowing when the trails are safe or unsafe is big because that's what we use to get from classes to the dorms. We have had school cancelled three times this year because of the weather. I did wish sometimes for school to be cancelled because of the weather but then after I adjusted to it, it was to bad.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
