The academics at this school are awesome! I have only had 1 teacher I didn't like, but he was losing his hearing, so that's what made it difficult. In general, the school is tough, but a great learning environment with excellent teachers and great growing experiences.

I love the strictness at the university because this is not a party school. If you want to mess around and just have a good time and aren't serious about your education, you shouldn't be coming to this school. The area of Azusa is pretty sketchy, but on campus I feel incredibly safe. They are strict for a reason, but are still forgiving and kind about it. They may be strict, but they're just doing their job to keep our campus safe.

For me, I dislike the heat and constant sun and prefer variety, so the weather at my school is frustrating. I love the rain and only experienced it 4 times all year at school. It is sometimes cold, but the seasons changing isn't very noticeable there. That's southern California for you! So, if you absolutely require rain, this is not the place for you! If you love the sun and can't get enough of it, this is the place for you!

Given that it's a Christian school where partying isn't allowed, I never actually saw any or heard of any parties.

The only greek life at APU is the academic honor societies.

Guys & Girls:
I really liked the people at Azusa Pacific. Especially in those first few weeks everyone was really nice and helpful. Also if you run with the right people you will find serious students.

The library is essentially the computer lab. It provides a decent number of computers with full and efficient internet access. Printing is offered as well from the library, however one must be prepared to pay a small fee. The hours of the computer lab/library on the weekends can be a problem every now and then.

As a psychology major there comes a lot of excitement. However, the workload is significant, which is expected. The focus on the psychology department isn't very significant on a wide scheme of things. They have some very interesting path's of emphasis, however, few full time professors to teach the curriculum which results in poor teacher/student relationships.
College Junior 2013-06-28T07:16:52Z
Professors, at least in my experience have been all adjuncts. This has been rather upsetting, especially as a transfer student. I have heard great things about some of the full time professors, however, due to the fact I am a transfer student, I receive the lowest priority for class registration. My first year, I had 1 full time professor simply because all of the other classes were filled to the brim.

There is a lot of convenience in the area as far as activities and shopping go. Grocery stores and restaurants are located in close proximity. Along with that there is a movie theater and a frozen yogurt shop near by which are both walking distance. However, the local community is rather dangerous and sadly enough possess many homeless. The crime warnings issued to students are rather frequent, especially in evening hours.

Azusa Pacific University's School of Business provides a variety of courses pertinent to my specific major, business management. The school also provides world renowned guest speakers to come present their motivational stories. The speaker series really helped me and inspired me to choose my career path. However, Azusa Pacific University lacks internship/job opportunities. They have very limited resources and lack specific job opportunities that relate to my career.

Health & Safety:
From my experience, the school's safety and security on campus would be described as dangerous. The school has provided multiple on-campus safety personnel but they still fail to maintain a sound environment. There were several incidents in which my friends knew of someone in the campus who were victims of sexual assault and theft. Ultimately, I believe the campus could take further preventative measures to create a safe environment for the students.

The registration process is very difficult. From my experience, the undergraduate registrar has misguided me with wrong information or they did not answer my questions. Some of the faculties have no knowledge on the school's curriculum or criteria. Therefore, it is very difficult to choose what courses to take and be aware of the next steps to fulfilling the school's requirements for graduation.
College Senior 2013-06-18T20:28:01Z
There is quite a bit of violence surrounding the school. It's best to live on campus or at home.

Mandatory Chapel for undergraduate students could present potential issues when students have class and are unable to meet the mandatory chapel requirements.

I am very happy with the mathematics program at my university. I would do it all over again even if it has been extremely difficult. I look forward to becoming a math teacher which shouldn't be hard to get hired as.
College Senior 2013-06-15T17:44:38Z
As a mathematics major going into education, I will be student teaching. That requires alot of time on my part and I do not get paid.
College Senior 2013-06-15T17:43:24Z
I love the mathematics program at my school. The program is small so we all know each other and have mathematics bbqs often.
College Senior 2013-06-15T17:41:37Z
The process of getting into my Mathematics major was relatively easy.

Varsity sports at Azusa Pacific University are attended, but are not a huge part of campus life.
College Sophomore 2013-06-06T21:10:03Z
Campus Dining is amazing at Azusa Pacific, because they offer a bunch of options for students. We have about eleven different eating areas in total. It is extremely convenient to order food between classes, because students can order online and grab it on the go right away. A couple of the food places open until fairly 12 - 1 am, which are located on the campus of the dorms.
College Sophomore 2013-06-06T21:06:01Z
Azusa Pacific has two separate campuses, however there are about four trolleys that take students from campus to campus. Although some students do not own a car, it does not matter because there are a lot of restaurants, fast food joints, and supermarkets that are located just across the street from the campus.
College Sophomore 2013-06-06T21:02:36Z
I do not own a car, so I am not sure if my answers may be accurate. Any who, I believe the cost is a bit expensive; however, of course the more credits or the longer you are a student there the more priorities you get. Parking is not too bad, but during chapel hours drivers should wish their car can fly. Other than that, I think parking is not too bad.

Guys & Girls:
There are a lot of beautiful girls at APU. Men are in minority at APU. It can be an adjustment being a male coming into an environment where the ratio of girls to guys is 2 or 3 to 1.
College Junior 2013-06-01T19:01:00Z
I thought the parking passes were a little expensive at 110 in addition to the cost of housing. I never had any trouble finding parking on either campus.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
