In 2017, APU launched a system to support student-run extracurricular activities. The three categories in the support system are Type A: Autonomous Event, Type B: Selected Project, and Type C: Enterprise & NPO Co-create Project. Students can receive financial support that is appropriate for their project type.
On April 12 and 13, the six groups selected as 2017’s Type B: Selected Projects gave presentations to a panel of APU faculty. The groups detailed almost a year’s worth of activity, showing what they had achieved, and what could be improved for the future. Top prize went to the group Bhabishya and Jamarko for Nepal, with Musical Company receiving the APU Prize for best representing the APU spirit. The Special Prize went to the Baseball Club for its unique contributions. All of the selected projects met and overcame their own distinct challenges over the year, and everyone can look forward to the new activities that will be selected for the 2018 academic year.
