My campus is a dry campus, and although you can find off-campus parties, they do a lot to provide alternative things to do on the weekends.

There are so many different choices of where to eat anything, so there are a lot of choices, total.

Health & Safety:
I have never really gotten sick in my whole time on campus. I don't really ever feel unsafe, either.

I prefer cooler weather, but APU's weather is not usually that bad.

They are strict on their rules, especially about drugs and alcohol. They are also very strict on their parking, but it is pretty easy to fight tickets. They have their rules for visitation, and they expect you to follow them.

There is acceptance for minorities or diverse group. As a commuter, I feel that we are sometimes marginalized only because it's hard to get involved since you live off campus but the University does try to involve us. I think like 40% percent of students are non-white, so there is somewhat of a diversity. Non white student also represent about 46 different nations.

There aren't too many places with student discounts, but you do have choices around there. There's fast food, and then there's those little restaurants with authentic food. I've heard Taco King has a really good horchata shake and they do offer student discounts. Yogurtland is popular as well, and Starbucks is around the corner. There's also markets to go buy other type of food/snacks. And if you need a late bite, you can definitely find a place open.

From the first day I walked in on my tour my senior year of high school, I loved it. Now as a freshman, I'm getting to know even more reasons to love APU! The professors truly care about you, the people are friendly, welcoming, and there is a strong sense of community. Not just that, but there are so many resources to help you not just your first year, but even after you graduate. Yes, the courses are challenging, but the rigorous curriculum makes the school even more notable. I also love that it emphasizes integrity in teaching, learning, and preparing you for a career.

I am enrolled in a 100% online program. I must have my own computer at home.

Awesome campus life, and great dorms. You love wherever you end up living.
College Freshman 2012-11-01T16:48:45Z
I am not involved in APU nightlife, however many people I know are and love it. So it is pretty active.

You have to really keep tabs on your own financial aid because no one is going to do it for you here at APU.
College Freshman 2012-11-01T16:38:03Z
Some places are pretty great, but there a few that are just mediocre or plain gross.
College Junior 2012-10-31T06:45:22Z
I enjoy the food on campus. Granted, though there are quite a few options, after a while the same thing over and over gets old. However, you can change it up because there are like 7 or so different dining options. The more popular places tend to be open for less hours and are not open on weekends, but otherwise it tastes good. Beware of weekends, make sure you know the hours the dining hall and the den are open, otherwise you might not get to eat that day. If you want a late night dinner on friday, nothing is open. But a lot of people go home on weekends and on Saturday and Sunday the den is open pretty late.

APU has a nice trolley system to get you between campuses which is convenient, though it can be very crowded due to high demand. A lot of things are within walking distance, so the need to use public transportation is not really relevant in most cases, unless you want to go to the beach or something, then you will need a car. The bus can be confusing and will take forever if you wanted to go that far anyway.
College Junior 2012-10-31T06:28:26Z
The only reason I give APU a B is because, though it is very open and accepting of all races, backgrounds, and religions, the actual representation of these diversities is rare. Most students are your typical white, upper middle class, people that grew up in Christian households. Which is not necessarily a bad thing. I mean, there are other ethnicities represented on campus and people from other backgrounds and quite a few, like myself, that did not grow up in Christian households, but the average APU student is what I just described.

The weather here at APU is definitely in favor of people who love the sun. Although it seldom reaches triple digits during the school year, it is common for the weather to remain in the low 90°'s until early winter. Days during the winter have never been known to drop below 50°'s. However, nights during the majority of the seasons are about ten degrees cooler than the day.

Applying for the financial aid was simply applying to become a student. When my acceptance letter came, enclosed was a letter informing me that I had been granted with a certain level of financial aid due to my GPA. Later I then received an email from a counselor that asked if I had any questions. My whole application process was such a breeze and I am more than thankful.

Guys & Girls:
With the broad range of liberal arts majors that are provided, this university is very diverse in the interests of students and to go along with that, their looks. Because of the football and basketball teams being in the division two league, there are many male students who are muscular and tall. Female students here tend to be more liberal and earthy and are known to describe themselves as 'hipsters.'

APU's 'communiversity' is outstanding. With students wearing certain shirts on given days to answer certain questions of freshman- or any student for that matter- it is very easy to approach anyone. Another place where great community is displayed is the 'Cougar Walk'. This path placed in the middle of all of the best restaurants on campus is aligned with many tables and chairs that make it easy to sit and chat with fellow students. Alongside these chatting peers, you will often find booths set up by passionate students promoting their exciting clubs and other campus activities.

This University has an exceptional community and student life. There are so many opportunities to get involved with peers and to get to know your professors on a personal level. There are tons of mission opportunities provided and encouragement from everyone surrounding you each day. For example, I had a desire to go on a missions trip to Mexico during my Thanksgiving break and simply by going up to a mutual friend do ask how she became involved, I was immediately directed to a certain link on the schools website and am now signed up and ready to go!

Very strict about drug and alcohol policies, and curfews. Too strict on parking regulations when there is not enough parking available.

I have gained so much from my classes and professors, the small class sizes are a plus. The curriculum is very demanding.

The Music major is one of the most demanding majors at Azusa Pacific, it is a wonderful program with fantastic professors, but the work load is not for the faint of heart.

Our nursing program is one of the hardest programs to get into as of right now. It is very competitive and the workload is extreme. But, we do get the chance to go to hospitals every semester, and it is not just one hospital for 4 years but we change every single semester. Azusa Pacific University has maintained a great connection and relationship with hospitals near and far and most of our graduates were able to find jobs right after they graduated.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
