Why did you decide to go to this school?


I actually was not originally 100{4a082faed443b016e84c6ea63012b481c58f64867aa2dc62fff66e22ad7dff6c} impressed by Azusa Pacific. I was traveling around California with my mom my senior year's fall break, because I knew I wanted to go to school out-of-state, and I came to visit my cousin at APU. I walked around, stayed with her a couple nights, and went to the beach. I liked it enough, and did not necessarily care to go anywhere else. But I know now that it was all God's doing that I ended up at APU. Because I was so unopinionated about where to go to college, or if I even wanted to go at all, I know that the fact that I ended up here is beyond my doing. I love attending APU, and I know I am getting so much more out of college than simply getting a degree.


I decided to go to APU because their acedemic programs are quite challenging and competitive. You wanted to get an education from a respected university that not only focuses on grades and school, but my spiritually journey with Christ. APU truly offer students to better their academic performance. Also, if one library isn't enough for you, good thing APU has THREE. Also, if one campus is not enough for you, its a great thing that it provides TWO huge campuses. One for liberal arts studies and the other for math/science studies. In the end when you're making your decision to go to college, don't think about school status and cost, think about which college will change you for the better. Yes, you're going to college for a high level of education so that you can get a job and make money. That is all essential, but is that all that life offers? At APU, they challenge you academically, but that's not it. APU gives a purpose in life by guiding you towards Jesus Christ.


It had the major I wanted, great community, a marching band which I wanted to be a part of, and overall a terrific atmosphere.
