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!

My experience at Azusa Pacific University has so far been an uplifting one. I am surrounded by driven, hard-working, joyful and bright students that always encourage, motivate, and socialize with me. I enjoy the smaller class sizes because I am more capable of having a question answered in class and I can learn better by developing a professional relationship with my professors. I believe that Azusa Pacific University overall is a great university, however, if I could change something I would encourage the university to reconsider students having mandatory chapel 3 days a week and reduce it to either 1 or 2 mandatory days. This is because balancing school work, social life, job or sport commitments, and chapel can be a bit overwhelming, especially for those who attend that aren't religious.
The community here is like nothing I have ever experienced. Everywhere you go people are smiling and talking, and people are always happy to help you whenever you need it, or even just give you a hug when you are having a bad day. And the food it actually pretty great! There are lots of options AND they just opened a Starbucks on campus!
