Loop.A.S. is a student organization of the Alumni Association, and is engaged in activities to connect (loop) graduates (alumni) and current students. Through our activities (1) current students will be stimulated by graduates and lead a more fulfilling student life (2) graduates will gain vitality from current students (3) APU family will develop (4) members will grow (5) Alumni Association.
Our ultimate goal is to function as one of the three pillars, such as “GASS for high school students, FLAG for new students, and Loop.A.S. for graduates, and ultimately we will connect not only with seniors, but also bring companies and current students closer with such opportunities as internships or headhunting from companies.”
In order to achieve these goals and objectives, we are divided into the event domestic department, the event international department, the interview department, and the PR department.
Please feel free to contact us if you would like to connect with current students or plan with current students!

The PR department is responsible for creating and posting images on Instagram and Twitter relating to Loop.A.S. events and interviews.

This can come as a great opportunity to talk directly with alumni working in the field you are interested in! We hope that many of you will take advantage of this opportunity!
The interview department interviews both graduates and current students in order to build a bridge between them, allowing them to get to know one another.
