At Alaska Pacific University we realize that just getting to our campus from the lower 48 has its challenges. However there is no greater way to experience APU then to visit the campus – and we’ll do all that we can to make it an experience worth your while. We love to share our campus, our city, and our state with visitors. We offer three types of visits to best suit the time of year and the time you have available.
Schedule a personal campus tour
Ask any APU student and they’ll agree that there is more to our campus then meets the eye. Even if you only have 20 or 30 minutes to spend with us you’ll finish your tour of campus knowing more than you could have imagined about APU and what it’s like to be a student here. To tour the whole campus takes about an hour but you can easily spend the afternoon exploring our 175 wooded acre campus.
APU Campus Visit
If you’re interested in spending quality time at Alaska Pacific University and to get a feel for student life, then join us for an APU Campus Visit. These extended weekend visits include the usual opportunities to meet current students and sit in on classes and we’ll make sure you experience what Anchorage has to offer with hockey games, skiing, the Iditarod, road-trips, and much more.
If you are looking to get away to a winter wonderland, consider this: last Winter Anchorage received 133 inches of snow, that’s an all time record! It’s hard to predict weather in Alaska, but snow in November is a certainty. So grab your skis/snowboard, sled, or snowshoes and explore what Alaska Pacific University has to offer you. Our fall preview weekend will expose you to life as a college student in the ‘last frontier’ and open your eyes to a learning environment like no other. You will get to attend class, live in the dorms, and meet with our esteemed faculty members specific to your desired field of study. We will enjoy trips around Anchorage to experience local culture and activities and venture outside the city to places few will ever see. Anchorage has a very active community, and the winter doesn’t slow us down. Instead, we anxiously wait for a fresh blanketing of powder and dive right in. Get your winter coat and come join us!
