Q & A with Luke
How has APU transformed you?
APU gave me an opportunity to really discover who I am and where I am going. It has challenged and pushed me to discover all that God has for me, and has given me a community of people who know me better than I know myself. My professors, friends, classmates, and staff have made APU a home that I know I belong in, and that I am constantly growing in.
Which activities at APU have you most enjoyed being a part of?
I spent a semester abroad in South Africa and went on a month-and-a-half backpacking trip to the Himalayas doing mission work. Through leadership opportunities, I led groups of students through their first year at APU where we had our serious talks, but also had crazy amounts of fun! Also the random spontaneous activities like trying to eat all the cereal in the cafeteria, midnight dodgeball games, and camping trips with friends.
What advice would you give to prospective students?
The best advice I can give is that you will get as much out of APU as you put in. Your professors and the staff at APU have so much to offer and your only job is to seek it out! APU has hundreds of opportunities, but they won’t always find you; sometimes you have to go find them!
How do you spend your free time?
Everything I do in my free time either involves people or food, ideally both. I love trying new restaurants, or exploring different types of food. I also love to cook! I love surfing, camping, and rock climbing, especially when I am doing them with people I love, and there will be food after.
