At the Student Center building, the Health and Wellness Center provides experienced health care staff to assist in first aid care services for students and provide a 24-hour emergency transport to hospitals. Furthermore, this department also organizes programs for health preservation, illness prevention and health enrichment programs on and off campus.

The University operates a small health clinic in the Thomas Massengill Student Center. This is the first place for students to seek assistance when they are ill. A nurse will then refer the patient to doctors or hospitals as needed. Asia-Pacific International University collects a medical fee each semester and provides a limited medical insurance policy to help cover student medical expenses on the following basis:

  1. The expenses are necessary and are usual, customary and reasonable; are prescribed by a doctor; and purchased from a hospital, clinic or pharmacy.
  2. The expenses are incurred during the semester.
  3. Optical and dental expenses are excluded.
  4. When a student requires hospitalization, the University will inform the parents to ask them to accept responsibility for the student until he/she is able to study again.
  5. The University provides medical transportation only within the Muak Lek district. Transportation beyond that is the responsibility of the student.
  6. Expenses of less than 1,000 Baht may be approved by either the Vice President for Student Administration or Finance. Expenses in excess of that figure are subject to the consideration of the Administrative Committee.

A more substantial accident and emergency medical insurance policy is purchased on behalf of students. Policy restrictions apply and each student is provided a copy of these through a commercial insurance company.

There is also a small hospital in Muak Lek and several hospitals in Saraburi (a 30 minute drive from campus). The Bangkok Adventist Hospital (a drive of about one hour and 40 minutes) offers excellent services including a very good dental clinic. There are numerous other quality hospitals in Bangkok.

Medications are available locally. An English speaking pharmacist is located in Muak Lek across the major vegetable and fruit market.

Drama Guidelines

The Student Life Committee is giving full support to the use of drama in our assemblies and/or worship services.

During the recent Festival of Faith and several vespers services before that, many students were very excited by the drama presentations. It increases student’s participation and stimulates the audience’s interest. For some students who do not learn much through lectures or sermons, the use drama is a powerful pedagogical tool. For many, that is the only item they remember after the service.

However, even a good tool can create negative results and feelings, if not used carefully. For example, several people have expressed their discomfort having to watch acts of violence and negative role-models on the stage. We need to be sensitive to their feelings also. That is why we are suggesting some guidelines to maximize our positive impact as we plan our future drama presentations.

We are encouraging positive role models, exhibiting constructive behaviors and uplifting actions, for example:

1. characters involved in prayer
2. worshiping
3. helping other people
4. encouraging friends
5. doing community service
6. Being diligent in their studies, reading in the library, preparing for exams
7. participating in sports
8. playing or singing good music
9. successfully resisting negative peer pressure
10. giving sound advice to friends
11. showing respect for parents, elderly and teachers
12. demonstrating biblical, faithful love between one Christian man and a woman, courtship made with respect for self and others
13. encouraging safe driving, wearing helmet when riding the motor bike
14. giving Bible studies, inviting friends to spiritual activities
15. sharing of stories of students who are accepting Jesus and asking for baptism.
16. telling actual biblical stories (parables or biographies), especially the positive ones

We are discouraging the extensive display of negative characters on stage, including

1. Satanic or evil spirits activities
2. alcohol drinking
3. drug abuse
4. smoking
5. fighting or any king of violence
6. use of offensive language
7. disobedience to authority
8. idol worship
9. sexual immorality (no multiple partners, no pre-marital sex, no abortion, no homosexuality).
10. hatred, discrimination, racism, ethnocentrism, prejudice, sexism, disrespect to individuals or group of people

For the purpose of clarity or driving a point, we may briefly refer to these negative traits. However, let us try to avoid having our students extensively display these behaviors in front of the public. By beholding we change. People tend to imitate what they watch. Hollywood is already packed with evil thoughts, violence, immorality, and mockery about spiritual values. The audience should not see more of these things when they come to our meetings.

Philippians 4:8 (NKJV) “Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things”.

2 Corinthians 3:18 (NKJV) : “We all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord”.

Proverbs 23:7 (NKJV): “For As he thinks in his heart, so is he”.

Thank you all for your dedication and your love for Christian education.

Citizenship

Low Citizenship Points – New Guidelines – 2013-2014

The minimum acceptable level for the citizenship points is 70.

If a student’s citizenship points fall below 70, the student must raise the level to the required minimum level to be permitted to move off campus, to graduate or to register for the next semester. There are stricter guidelines for students who wish to run as SC officer candidates.

Most students lose their citizenship points because of the following violations:

1. Breaking curfew rules
2. Failing to wear the complete uniform
3. Failure to ask permission before going away for the weekend
4. Alcohol, smoking, or drug abuse violations

How can students build back their citizenship points?

There are two ways to get their points back to an acceptable level:

1. Do community service: The dorm dean, their professor or the chaplain can give them some work to do to fulfill the community service (free labor) requirements to earn the points you need. The rate is one hour of work for three points. One (1) hour of work = 3 points
2. Pay a fine: 50Baht for one (1) point. Fines cannot be charged to the student’s account. All fines must be paid in cash at the cashier’s window located in the Administration Building. The student will bring the receipt to the dorm dean to receive the citizenship points. Student may earn a maximum of 50% (half) of the points they need to regain by paying a fine. For the other half, they must do community service hours.

Can students pay a fine to rebuild their worship attendance percentage?

No, they can’t. Money cannot buy worship attendance credit. To earn worship credits, they need to attend worship services and/or participate in the following activities:

1. Dorm worship
2. Chapel (Wednesday at 10am)
3. Assemblies
4. Wednesday night family worship at 7pm
5. Departmental worship on some Thursdays at 7pm
6. Vespers (Friday at 7pm)
7. Sabbath morning worship at 9am and 10:45 am
8. Branch Sabbath School (Saturdays at 1:30 pm)
9. AY meeting every Saturday at 5pm
10. Other pre-approved spiritual meeting, Bible study groups, prayer meetings, Seekers, choir, etc.

They are surrounded by a naturally beautiful and quiet environment conducive to learning and character development.
