This annual fundraising event partners alumni and current students as they explore APU’s century-old commitment to keep God First, highlight those who have impacted the lives of others, and join efforts to thank those who give so generously to make the APU experience possible. Volunteers engage in set-up, food service, and tear down at the end of the night.

APU’s Los Angeles Term (L.A. Term) is a residential study and service semester in the heart of Los Angeles. It aims to equip undergraduate students to live out their faith and values in postmodern urban culture. Dependent on public transportation during the semester, students live with homestay families in Los Angeles, do an internship at a local community or government organization, and take classes at the L.A. Regional Center in Koreatown.
It doesn’t matter what age you are, Mexico Outreach is life-changing. Mexico Outreach was founded on the principle that young people of all ages can be effective in sharing the Gospel, and that within them are many gifts and talents to do so. Who is to say that one of them might not grow into a "Daniel," and another into the next great missionary of our generation? Our prayer is that every participant with Mexico Outreach experiences Jesus Christ and finds themselves renewed in their purpose in Him.
