The campus at APU is one in a million. There is abundant wildlife surrounding the campus including moose, goshawks and great birds. The school is very small and specializes in environmental science. During the winter it is a great place to ski as there are kilometers of groomed trails with almost no one on them.

APU is a wonderful, small, liberal arts university that is the highest ranked in Alaska. The faculty are outstanding and the students inspiring.

Beautifully nestled between trees and adjacent to UAA. Small school, small classes but NOT small minds. This campus offers so many great learning opportunities inside and outside of the classrooms. Compared to other schools, you will pay more but the learning environment is so much richer-it's well worth it!

This is the top university in the state of Alaska. It's APU of public school (UAA/UAF) that churns out mediocre education.

We've had two family members, father & son, graduate from APU. Both had great experiences,would highly recommend to a student who likes small classes, teacher attention and unique experiences.

As an adult learner, I really enjoy their hands-on teaching and learning style. They give you a nugget to chew and mull over and by golley you get the whole enchilada by the time the lesson is over.

I wandered around the campus and explored the trails during the summer. The campus was absolutely gorgeous with views of the mountains and green grass. I even saw a moose with two babies!
