      I am currently a second year student at Azusa Pacific University and I absolutely love the school. I was always someone who didn’t really like school, but yet at APU they really make you feel welcomed and have plenty of resources to use in times of need. In addition, the students and professors are very friendly and helpful! Although the tuition can seem like a lot, but I love how Christ-centered the school is. The school itself is a small community, but it helps a lot in growth with Christ and even in our studies. Two things I would suggest is possibly offering more classes for students because enrolling for classes can be rough at times and possibly having online classes opened to commuters more because it would help those that are traveling further than local ones and for those that can not afford living on campus. I am a commuter myself and it is pretty hard going to school everyday sometimes driving for more than an hour due to traffic.

      I just finished my freshman year in Azusa Pacific University. I absolutely loved the environment and my campus life in APU. Since APU is a Christian school, you are able to deeply learn about Christianity and theology. I am currently majoring in nursing and I think APU has one of the best nursing program. Professors are really nice and knowledgeable. I strongly recommend APU if you want to learn more about God and if you want to study nursing. This shool has a great nursing program!
      My experience at APU was amazing! I live in Trinity Hall and my hall really made the experience a great one for me. Everyone liked each other and we were all outgoing at the beginning of the first semester. As a freshman I found myself busy a lot. I was either doing homework or I was playing ping pong in the lounge with “the boys”. For anyone that attends APU, I highly advise to be outgoing that first weekend or week that you are living on campus. I’m not from California so I needed to make friends fast and the only way to do that was to be outgoing.
