ZU Media includes four converged student media outlets dedicated to providing a realistic educational experience for students of Azusa Pacific University; to seeking truth and reporting it boldly, fairly, and accurately; to enhancing the university community by providing a student voice imbued with truth, responsibility and accountability. Prior to the rebrand, ZU Media consisted of Capture, KAPU, Collide and Clause. The community of APU recognizes the incredible history of these student media outlets at APU and the foundation they set forth for future generations to come in the field of journalism. To that, we say thank you and we hope we continue to make you proud.
