ASAPU - Your Voice on CampusThe 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.


Get involved

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.

Erica Stoddard


It is my honor to be returning for a second year as Student Body President at Alaska Pacific University!  Transferring to APU in the fall of 2011 has been a wonderful experience and I greatly enjoy being able to represent the students of such a great community.  I am currently a senior pursuing a degree in Psychology with a minor in Outdoor Studies, focusing on Recreational Therapy with military personnel.  Being born and raised in west Reno, Nevada I have always had a love for the outdoors and living in Alaska has given me a limitless playground to work in!  I look forward to meeting all of our new students and making sure they feel positively represented by our student government.

Amber Peterson

Vice President

Hey everyone! I’m Amber Peterson, the Vice Chair for ASAPU for the 2013-2014 school year. I grew up in a small town in northern New Hampshire. I am a Marine Biology major and a Pre-Med concentration. I think we are a great school, with great students, and so much to offer. I am focusing on projecting APU into the Anchorage community. My hobbies include, but are not limited to: reading, camping, dog mushing, drawing, etc.

Abby Johnson


I am attending APU because they help me grow as a person. I am a sophomore and getting a degree in Marine Biology. I want to work with Marine reptiles in the future. Right now I do research projects concerning salmon by-catch and participate in clam surveys. I like the feeling of making a difference and I can definitely do that at APU. I have joined ASAPU to continue to make a difference. I want to be a voice; both from the student body and to the student body.

Michaela Stith

Early Honors Representative

My name is Michaela Stith, and I am an Anchorage native and Early Honors student. My interests are debate, acting, and public policy, and I hope one day to have a career in U.S. government and law. I chose to attend APU because I wanted to take more rigorous classes than those offered at my high school, and I’ve definitely acheived that goal. As Early Honors representative, I want to ensure that all my peers are informed about and involved in APU social movements and events so we can all have the most memorable and transformative college experience possible.
