The moment you set foot on campus, you will notice something very different—true diversity. Take a student body originating from over eighty countries/regions and put them in a space that encourages experimentation and discovery. What results is a completely unique and vibrant student community who not only embrace APU’s multicultural atmosphere but thrive in it through a colorful array of activities, events, clubs, and societies. No matter what your interests are, APU has a place for you.

Multicultural Weeks

Throughout the school year, APU designates several “Multicultural Weeks” where students showcase the languages and cultures of one country or region. Take the lead as a week organizer or join in these celebrations of world culture as a performer. Each multicultural week ends with a grand show that is streamed live online.
