    APSU has all the amenities of a larger campus with the home town and personal touch of a small junior college. All the professors are available and friendly and a great many of them consider themselves to be student oriented, meaning they go out of their way to ensure that the students know and understand the material and will also get out of classroom experience to broaden their horizons. APSU is also really affordable and has several scholarships so its easy to defray those pesky school loans!
