I immediately loved the classroom environment. There was open dialogue and engaged faculty. Faith was integrated into the classes in a way that opened peopleís minds and gave them the opportunity to explore their own beliefs. If it hadnít been for the supportive faculty at APU, I wouldnít have made it through. They pushed me to finish my degree and helped me find ways to manage my time.
