The Associated Students of Alaska Pacific University (ASAPU) is the University’s student government. Run by a group of 12 elected student representatives, ASAPU serves as the voice of all students by promoting and coordinating student involvement and by representing the interests, needs and welfare of the student body to the staff, faculty and the Board of Trustees.
ASAPU has many opportunities to get involved! There are a variety of informational, entertainment, and recreational opportunities supported by ASAPU such as:
- Voicing opinions or concerns about decisions that affect the experience of students.
- Students, appointed by ASAPU, often sit on University committees to select new staff members or to advise decision makers about policies, procedures, fees, and other issues that affect student life.
- Provides direct financial support to individuals and student organizations who are involved in making a difference.
The ASAPU office is located in the back of the first floor of the Atwood Center. Feel free to stop by!
My admissions counselor told me, “only come to APU if you want to change your life”, and he was right! Being born and raised in Reno, Nevada I have always had a passion for the outdoors. Prior to transferring to APU in 2011 I played Division II volleyball in the Northeast. I am a junior studying Wilderness Therapy and in my free time I enjoy climbing, ropes courses, exploring, traveling and enjoying everything Anchorage and Alaska have to offer!
