Fall Fest

Come join the rest of the APU community in an orientation tradition, a celebration of the end of the first week of school! Come hear the band Judah and the Lion perform, eat some awesome food, and kick back and enjoy the fact that you are truly an APU student! For those that have a meal plan, dinner will be served on Trinity Lawn instead of in the 1899 Dining Hall. This event is brought to you by the Office of Communiversity.

Location:
