Alaska Pacific University is a private, independent university that promotes the fullest development of its students through liberal arts and professional programs while emphasizing individual attention to students, the development of leadership abilities, and the nurturing of spiritual and moral values consistent with its Christian heritage while respecting the religious convictions of all. The Alaska Pacific University campus in Anchorage is one of the most beautiful campuses in the United States, a serene and natural jewel set in the heart of a modern city, with the ever-changing Chugach Mountains rising up behind nearly 200 acres of lawns, woods, and University Lake. Moose are frequently seen on the campus in all seasons, as are a wide variety of other Alaska animals and birds. The three miles of campus trails lead bikers, hikers, in-line skaters, skiers, and runners into an extensive regional trail system which stretches from the ocean waters of Cook Inlet, throughout the city, and into the mountains to the east
