Performing Arts Crew

The Performing Arts area oversees the Performing Arts Crew (PAC), a first-year (transfers welcome) volunteer leadership opportunity. PAC exists to promote community, involvement, and a sense of belonging by providing students with engaging performing arts events. PAC members work with the campus activities coordinator and the Performing Arts interns.

PAC is a great way to get involved on campus and network with APU administrators, faculty, and staff. The experience is also beneficial when applying to future campus leadership positions.

Applications are typically due mid-September to serve for that same academic year. If the application period has passed, contact us at to see how you can get involved.
