Am learning a lot
Very open and largely discussion based courses
Am enjoying being here
Great welcoming atmosphere, friendly people. Professors always welcome questions even if they're not precisely on topic they will do their best to answer and if they cannot figure out an answer (i.e philosophical type question) students are asked and it becomes a discussion usually
Bang for the buck
Fairly high tuition but very much worth it, professors will answer any questions you have and advisors, teachers, staff, other students always have an open ear.
Tips for prospective students
Be open and expressive
Great for these types of students
Open minded, willing to learn things outside courses and take initiative in discussions and who learn better by doing and talking about the topic at hand.

Did learn a lot
Lots of hands on learning! The outdoor education classes are amazing.
Did enjoy being here
The univeristy is very small, which I though was great! It was very easy to make new friends and a lot less intimidating that other schools I had visited. The campus is surrounded by walking trails that double as cross-country skiing trails in the winter time.
Bang for the buck
I received good financial aid when I applied right out of high school.
Tips for prospective students
Live in the dorms! Great community atmosphere with a wonderful student support system. You will make friends for life!
Great for these types of students

Am learning a lot
So far my classes have been taught by people who have really gone far in their fields, so they have a lot of experience to draw on. Our classes tend to be discussion oriented. Group projects not only allowed me to get closer to my classmates, but to also really think things through and to draw on my own experiences and knowledge.
Am enjoying being here
The campus is beautiful! The summers are sunny and the winters are great for snow sports.
Bang for the buck
You definitely get what you pay for! I also went to a private school for my undergraduate degree, which is why I stuck with APU when I moved to Alaska.
Tips for prospective students
GIve it a shot! Request more info and learn what you can gain from a degree at Alaska Pacific University.

Am learning a lot
I am learning a lot from this school. The small class size is excellent to receive one on one from the teacher of your class. You get help when ever you need it from them.
Am enjoying being here
I love it here. The scenery is just gorgeous. There are moose walking all over campus. The mountains are visible when you walk outside. The people are all very nice and helpful that work here. You can just take a tent and hike out from campus to be totally in nature and enjoy this beatufil state and all of its natural beatuy.
Bang for the buck
This school is not cheap but the education that I am receiving is worth it. I just have to try and get some scholarships and finicial aid to help pay for it. They are rated tops in their field for Marine Biology.
Tips for prospective students
Go and check out the school and see if it is for you. I did and that was the final selling point I knew that I had to go there. They have programs for people interested in going to this school. Go to their website and check them out.
Great for these types of students
If you want to be an outdoor study major or something with biology you should defenitally check out this school. What better place to learn about these things than in Alaska.
