What stood out to me was the cohort style of classes. I felt like if I was going to be studying teaching, it should be in a more realistic setting than a lecture hall. In short, I was attracted to the small class size. Also, I really like the philosophy. It seems to be centered on cooperative learning. I also know several people who have earned their education degrees here, and they love APU. I also know people who have gone elsewhere and were very disappointed.
