Azusa Pacific University Reviews

49 reviews
I am excited to begin my journey with APU as a graduate student. From the time I have spent preparing for this next step, I have enjoyed the interactions with professors and my cohort. There is a beauty in this school that is trying their best to learn and be open to the world around them. The campus is beautiful but the city of Azusa is pretty scarce. There is not much to do around, and also as far as diversity there isn't too much diversity, but as a private Christian affiliated school that is pretty average. Overall, I know APU has a great reputation amongst other schools and I am a proud APU Cougar!
