The Orientation program within the Office of Orientation and Transitions is a new student program that exists for the purpose of creating a smooth, comfortable, and safe transition into Azusa Pacific University. New students and parents alike are provided with a Christ-centered welcome to the university setting that is innovative, informative, energetic, and meaningful. As a result, new students feel at home and parents feel connected and involved with APU.
