As an APU alumnus, you are more than just a Cougar, you are part of an ongoing legacy that spans 113 years of mission, tradition, and spirit grounded in God First. Connected to a larger story that ranges all the way back to our beginning as the Training School for Christian Workers through our days as Azusa College and now as Azusa Pacific University, you play an essential role in keeping the legacy alive for generations to come.
Since 1899, our institution has been training Christian workers to go out into the world. From Mary Hill to Jon Wallace, our commitment to placing God First in everything we do still remains.
