Q & A with Meghan...
- How has APU transformed you?
- It would be hard to be a student at Azusa Pacific University and not be transformed. I still look back on those four years and wonder how did I end up here, and so blessed? I was transformed not only academically, but also spiritually, in ways that I could never have imagined. Whether it was in class or out of class, I learned how to build my foundation on faith and to surround myself with a group of believers that would challenge me and encourage me. I realized the hope and love that God has in store for me and it is based on that that I now continue my path and follow the plans He has for me. I am so grateful to have been at APU during such a transformational time of life and to have had such a wonderful group of people to lead me through the changes, both small and big.
- Which activities at APU have you most enjoyed being a part of?
- Throughout my time at APU, I was privileged to be a part of Discipleship Group (D-Group) ministries as well as the intern program in Undergraduate Admissions. I was also a devoted fan of many intramural teams and spent a significant amount of time perfecting my ping pong skills in the Cougar Dome. I also thoroughly enjoyed reading the literature that my English professors recommended.
- What advice would you give to prospective students?
- I think the best advice that someone gave me when I was looking at colleges was to remember that God would put me where He wanted me, and that the place I am in now is part of the path He has for me. I would tell students to enjoy looking at schools; as stressful as it may seem, this is something that can be fun, so enjoy the process. Visit the campuses you are interested in, as it will give you the best idea of where you ‘fit,’ and don’t be afraid to ask questions.
