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!

Living on campus is overall beneficial to live in close proximity to both campuses of APU. Freshmen housing has improved since their are 3 building options. Obviously Trinity is the newest, therefore the nicest and most spacious. Sophomore housing includes Shire modular or two apartment complexes. My shire mod experience was less than satisfactory because I felt like I was living in a cardboard box, but the community aspect was positive. Upper classmen housing in University Village is good, some apartments are older and more worn in but the space is exceptional, privacy is great, community participation is low but the recreational areas are decent and provide opportunities to socialize outside the apartments!
I absolutely love APU. The professors are awesome and very helpful. They truly care about their students and are there for you when you need them. They also do an excellent job at integrating your faith into the courses. Although there is a lack in diversity, certain student groups and offices, such as the international center and the office for diversity and reconciliation, help fill that gap. Choosing Azusa Pacific University was the best decision I have ever made and I would highly recommend it!
