Q & A with Josh...

How has APU transformed you?
What I found most transformational about my experience at APU were all of the opportunities I had to interact with the leadership on campus. I expected to get a solid education, and I did. What surprised me were the quality relationships with faculty and staff that were born out of the classroom and mentoring. I learned as a student, and am reminded now, of the intentional time dedicated to students and their lives at APU.
Which activities at APU have you most enjoyed being a part of?
I really enjoyed spending time in, and being a part of the student leadership team in the Office of Orientation and Transitions. I never went a year without being on some kind of intramural team, and I had a great time with Outdoor Adventures through Communiversity.
What advice would you give to prospective students?
Be sure to spend time learning about the schools you are applying to. Once you make a decision, you will spend a significant amount of time at that school. In the beginning, it’s easy to focus solely on academic programs and scholarships, which are important. However, you also need to be comfortable on campus to be successful. Try to visit campus, visit a class, stay in the dorms, and meet with a professor. Make sure you fit the university and the university fits you.
How do you spend your free time?
I love spending time with my friends and family, typically around very good food. I enjoy road biking and target shooting on the weekends and spending time with my wife in Pasadena.
