Welcome to Expedition Alaska, APU’s first-year experience learning community

Designed for first-time college students and sophomore transfers new to Alaska Pacific University, Expedition Alaska combines academic study and only-in-Alaska field experiences, led by APU faculty.

“A bond develops when faculty and students journey together in a place as special as Alaska,” says University President Don Bantz. He’s among faculty who teach Expedition Alaska courses and travel with students on the Yukon.  “Expedition Alaska fosters that all-important bond for our new students in and out of the classroom.”

Expedition Alaska 2014 welcomes you to college life at APU in many ways:

  • Choose from an array of challenging courses delivered as four-week intensives. You’ll start the school year with first-hand insight into APU’s active learning approach.
  • Learn about Alaska—and yourself—as you develop essential learning competencies in a field study experience.
  • Discover the rewards of collaborating with new classmates and APU faculty who double as your expedition leaders.

Expedition Alaska courses fill on a first-come, first-served basis.
