Alaska Pacific University Reviews
There are many different options. For freshman they have the south building where a total of 5 people can live in the same dorm. There is a large common room with a tv and pool table and they are connected to the gym, cafe, and laundry room. The dorms are spacious cleanly and a maid come in to clean once a week. The north building is just like the south building but is for upper class-men only. They then have the Row which is a neighborhood close to campus with little apartments. They are also very nice and only 2 minutes further from the classes than the rest of the dorms. Overall the on campus living is great!
I love the small community and the friendly school counselors and student body. Everyone there is very close knit because of the small class sizes and how it arranged. They organize the classes so that the freshman class, regardless of degree program, are put them in many of the same core classes so that they get to know one another. At the beginning of freshman year they have a 3 week trip down the Yukon River so everyone can get to know each other and build relationships. I would totally go there again I had a blast!
The availability of degrees is limited, with only a handful of majors available, but the variety of classes in those select programs are very good. There are certain issues with the buildings, staff, and faculty that the student body aren't happy about as a whole, but you'll find things like that at every school.
