Absolutely, yes! There are plenty of options for meeting other incoming freshman before the school year starts! One way is through New Student Registration and New Student Orientation Trips! Check out the hyper-links for more information! You can also check out the admitted students Facebook pages and connect with others that way!
I am from Colorado, so I can understand your concern! While I knew only one or two people at APU when I came, freshman orientation (the first nearly week before school starts) was an incredible experience in which you have the opportunity to meet and participate in fun activities with new people! The dorm you will be placed in will also do many activities, as well as you will be placed in what is called an Alpha group which is a small group of other incoming students who you meet with for the first half of the semester. APU does an incredible job at creating community, so I can assure you that you will make friends :)
Hope that helps! Let us know if there is anything else you want to know!
