What's unique about your campus?

Brian

I love that Azusa Pacific University truly follows their model of "God First".

Madison

The best thing about my school besides the genuine feeling of goodwill and thoughtfulness towards others is the way that there is a sense of community. Every single one of my proffessors cares about their students, they take time to answer questions and always challenge me to be a deeper thinker, and push me to action.

Theresa

My school promises that it will bring out your special gifts and talents. It does this and teaches each individual student how to use them to better their communities and the world.

Sophia

HOnestly, I really did not enjoy the school at all. However, if you are super strong in your Christian faith you might enjoy it.

Whitney

One of the most unique things about Azusa Pacific is the level of friendliness. You can walk by about 87% of strangers, and they will give you a smile or "hello." Also, as time goes on, you find that more and more of your friends are connected. Someone you meet might know a certain friend of yours because they are from the same hometown and went to high school together, possibly had a class with your roommate freshman year and used to sit together, or studied abroad with a girl from your D-Group. Everyone is really inter-connected.

The fact that it has 2 campuses! One is for the liberal art studies (east side) and one is for the math/science studies (west side) . it takes about 10 to 15 minutes to walk from one campus to another! But if you dont want to, APU provides a FREE transportation service! Trolleys come every 7 minutes to pick up students from one campus and gives them a ride to the other. Also, if you have night classes, trolleys are in service up to 10:45 pm!

Kierstan

The thing I love most about my school is how easy it is to meet and connect with people. Literally you can meet new people everyday. Another thing that I like are the amount of leadership positions available. If you want leadership experience APU is a great place to find it. The environment cultivates leaders and even if you don't feel like you are a natural leader APU gives you the confidence so step out an try new things.

Arielle

Azusa Pacific offers students with a copious amount of leadership, academic, and social opportunities. the envionrment is family oriented and a close nit of people who have similar interests, goals, and desires in life as you.

Jacob

I think the best thing about my school is the environment. Everyone here has great attitudes and is always willing to help a friend in need and willing to go out of their way for someone else.

Deanna

I love that my school has a wide variety of classes with excellent teachers in every field. I have taken classes such as astronomy, art history, feminism, and voice. My teachers have inspired me to learn all I can in each subject. They have challenged me to refine my artwork, music performance, dance, and writing. It has been an enjoyable growing process. The best thing about my college is the interaction and inspiration I have gained from great teachers. I can reach for the stars thanks to astronomy professor Sepikas! ( I just have to reach 39,900,000,000,000km)

Aaron

I beleive the best part about my school is the level of education. Right now I have a class that is literally three people beside the teacher. It's an interesting experience to be able to get to know your teacher on a personal level besides each teacher being a great professor in their subjects that also have had real life experiences. But I just think it is really cool to be able to learn about them as people as well as the lecture they might happen to be giving at the same time.

Tyler

A select number of the professors that actually know what they are talking about.

The best thing about my school is the diversity. Everywhere you look it is obvious there is a mixture of cultures and it is awesome.

I love being able to grow in my relationship with Christ while going to school.

The Christian atmosphere is comforting and unique. The students are here to learn and engage in activities that enhance learning.

Lori

Everything is very organized, as long as you follow the timelines give or take a few weeks, you should have no problems with succeeding. They have so many people who specialize in different aspects of the school and they give you a list of phone numbers for them, plus for your classmates as well. They are very open and do not make you feel ashamed to ask questions when you do not understand something.

Bridget

What I love best about APU is the Christian environment as well as my soccer team (varsity school team). There is a Christian emphasis on everything and that has allowed me to grow in my faith and become more sure of myself in everything I do. The soccer team has become my family over the last 3 1/2 years and I will remember the friendships and good times I made with my teammates.
