Alaska Pacific University is a great school for people who are looking for a small sitting, and I totally recommend this place for a working class families as well as parents who need a flexible schedule. It's a school that has a growing health science department which is very astonishing, especially supporting Native students- APU has many funding options and programs to choose from and does not cater towards any age group. Spinney people in my classes come from a variety of backgrounds and they're all there to learn. Many of the professors come from all over the United States and apply much of their skills to small class settings. We have active learning which allows for more outdoor opportunities and experiences that are unique to APU.
I love APU's philosophy, overall atmosphere, and community. It is a wonderful school to go to and anyone that goes here will grow and develop as a person and student.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Alaska Pacific University is 55%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I would have to tell my high school self not to accept admission to Alaska Pacific University, instead I should have applied and attended University of Alaska Anchorage. I would tell myself to take some more science classes at a community college to fufill some of my Science GURs and GERs. I would tell myself to take as many college classes as I could at the community college and have them transferred over for Fall 2008 term at the college that I wanted to attend.
I would tell myself not to take classes I could not handle in Fall 2008, instead I would take a mixture of challenging classes and the easy classes. I would make sure that I had better time management and had better judgment when it came to making friends and choosing the college of my four years.
Alaska Pacific has character: it is strong and intelligent, creative and hippie, passionate and motivated; the students here will all try to accomplish something which they find worthwhile in the world.
Just about anyone who wants to be in school should go. Someone who should not go is someone who does not want to be in school, dose not care for what they are studing. Someone who does not want to better themselves.
Outgoing, interesdted, dedicted, fun student; the best of the best!
I havent been to the school yet so I don't exactly know what's bad about it although I have heard the sidewalks there need to be re-done.
I like Alaska Pacific University because it is small, has an outstanding student/teacher ratio, is technologically current, has great teachers, and is on a beautiful campus in Anchorage.
APU is known for time spent in the feild with there students.
Marine Biology, Outdoor recreation majors.
I like how the teachers are willing to help me when i need it. I am taking classes at night and that works with my work as well. I enjoy going, the teachers keep class instersting so that you want to go.
I wish I had known that there isn't as much financial aid as I thought there was, and that it's hard to get off campus if you don't have a car.
The fact that the word 'internship' was never even mentioned.
The university has medium sized classes which fill up the quickest and have the most students. At the most my biggest class has 100 people in it. Once you decided your major or area of focus the class sizes decrease and the teachers definately know your name and what your goal and passion is. The faculty is very supportive. I am a communication major. The most unique class I took was Intercultural commuication with an emphasis on understanding Japanese, Alaska Native, and Mexican cultures. It was insane how different all three were and I learned so much about Alaska Natives! I grew up in Alaska and the things I didn't recognize about beliefs and how they influence behavior was amazing. Anyways, my least favorite class was ECON!! It is a degree requirement so have fun. The school's academic requirments are very similar to all the college requirements. There are a lots of classes you have to take to earn your degree.
My overall opinion of the school is that it is supported by a community that cares about solving real issues. The students are never pushed to the point where they are uncomfortable in the class room setting. The biggest complaint is the lack of transportation to and from campus. There are shuttles on campus and I believe there is shuttle transportation off campus but only at certain times. This cause issues if you need to go to the grocery store when it is -40 outside in December. You can usually bum a ride from your roommate if they have a car or a friend of a friend but still, I would seriously consider an investment in a practical used car if you go to this school. The school has a lot of school spirit and pride especially when it comes to the university's hockey program. The games draw good sized crowds of a couple thousand and the game's are fun to watch. Most of my time is spent at the Wood Center and the library, of course. The Wood Center has a Taco Bell, a sushi cafe, a place to buy fruit smoothies, coffee, cheeseburger, whatever you feel like. There is also a pool lounge, a bowling alley, and a big screen TV where you can go watch sunday NFL games if you like football. The best thing about this school is all the intramural sports like soccer, tennis, flag football, and basketball that the university organizes because it gives you a chance to meet new people that enjoy similar activities.
The stereotype of students at my school is that everyone is a hippy or an arctic wildlife major. This stereotype is inaccurate. I feel that people who choose to express their love for nature and the environment using their appearance stand out more often then the people who don't. These would be the people wearing dreadlocks, no deoderant, and living a more rustic lifestyle which Fairbanks easily provides. But along with the hippy/granola's there are many native americans from small villages, engineering students are common, and all sorts of different kinds of people that make it a comfortable atmosphere!
