Azusa Pacific was the worst college experience ever. The majority of the students are snooty, arrogant and closeminded. In addition, many of the students are closed off the others. In other words, if you are not a republican christian, then you will get the short stick of things. You will be treated differently and such. Finding friends will be extremely difficult since most people aren't really open to free thinking. Most people at APU just generally talk about how the love Jesus all of the time. It's like "I get that you love Jesus but could you STFU and talk about something else."I felt like Galileo when he was shunned and exiled for free thinking and being himself… The events are extremely uninteresting unless you still haven't grasped what real fun is. In addition, many of these student events would better suit high school students or younger. I could go on and on talking about how pathetic APU is but it would take to long. In sum, APU is just a glorified high school that doesn't look kindly to free thinking and more. Almost forgot, the school is not diverse whatsoever.

commentSpeak the Truth! Don't forgot that the school is not "God First." It's "Your Money In God's Bank Account First." lol
responseYes, I agree that this inferior place is just like high school all over again. Some ignorant, uncouth, and low class teachers tried to say that this place is as great as Stanford. What a lie! Stanford is far superior to this Azusa school.
LOL. I give you 5 stars for the Galileo reference. But yes, I agree. I actually live about 15 min from Stanford, but my GPA is not good enough to attend, unfortunately.
commentAt least you're fortunate to live by Stanford instead of shitty Azusa. The cheapest part of Stanford is 20 times better than the most expensive part of Azusa. If parents cared about their kids, they wouldn't raise them in Azusa. But parents who live by Stanford are great parents who care a lot. So you must have great parents.
commentI really hear and sympathize with the student above who said that you live 15 minutes away from Stanford. Since you're already going over 200 miles away from home, have you thought of going to USC, Pepperdine, or Claremont for this amount of money? Those colleges are much better than APU.
commentI agree that this campus isn't diverse. Most students are stupid. Teachers just grade you on whether they like you or not.
responseSorry you had such a bad experience. I went to APU as a non-Christian from Tennessee, and I found people who are very caring and supportive. I have had teachers who became mentors and really support me in my tough question.

Also, you must understand that APU isnt just about academia (though its important). There a big emphasis on the spiritual and ethnical well being of their students. If you want to go to a school where you can get the based education, then APU might not be the best for you. But if you want to go to place grow as person, then got o APU. It is a Christian school and hold certain beliefs. Read them before you go. Dont be surprise when they stand for what they say.

responseIt is not accurate to think that the schools that rank a hell of a lot higher than APU are only about the academia. The schools that kick APU's ass any day also have way better opportunities for spiritual growth. At the famous tier one schools, there are mostly bright and creative kids that you can actually have interesting dialogues with, but APU students cannot measure up. I'm so embarrassed that I ever went to APU. It's nothing more than the equivalent of a run-of-the-mill private religious high school.
