The Alpha Program is the first contact during Welcome Weekend for all incoming students! Each semester, all incoming students (first-year and transfer) are placed into Alpha Groups, led by an Alpha Leader (peer orientation leader). The Alpha Leader and Alpha Group exist to support and guide you during your transition to APU throughout the first semester as an APU student. Your leader hosts weekly meetings and it is a great opportunity to meet other students, learn about on-campus resources, and have fun along the way!
Alpha Program and Welcome Weekend
All incoming students will meet their assigned Alpha Leader during the first night of Welcome Weekend. During Welcome Weekend, we help new students get comfortable with the people and places of APU, setting you up for a successful university transition and experience. Learn more at the Welcome Weekend Website.
