As a small liberal arts college, Azusa Pacific University is like a hole-in-the-wall college that's a hidden gem. More specifically, the department of biology and chemistry is vastly experienced and well organized, though most others are not as well maintained. The facilities management is not always on par and some policies unnecessarily hinder your learning and social life. Cumulatively, however, I am very happy with my education and look forward to applying all I've learned in medical school next year!

Overall the school offers a great education system. The class rooms average to 30 students, making it easier to get to know your professor, and what can be achieved to succeed in the class. The campus and food aren't that great especially considering how high the tuition is. Housing and dorms are about average along with the area. There isn't a lot to do in the area, but the destination to hangout spots aren't to far away!
I absolutely love APU. Professors are very welcoming and very helpful. My experience so far at this university has been amazing especially because it is a Christian environment and God’s Word is praised and respected within the campus. Everyone is very friendly on campus including students and faculty. I am enjoying my time at APU especially because even though I am a commuter I spend lots of time at school in the library and in different club meetings. In this school, there is also lots of options of clubs, courses to take, and even food options which is amazing. College life in general hasn’t been easy especially when it comes to tuition but all of the support from my professors had made me fall in love with my campus in such a way that I rather be at school and be productive then actually stay home and relax. I would encourage everyone who want to find Christ in their life to apply to APU because you will experience new things that you would blessed that you are a part of APU!
