  • The dorm life is honestly really fun to be in because you get to know the people in the freshman halls, but not so much in the upper class dorms.…

    The food isn't 5 star, but it's always plentiful and surprisingly cheap when you look for it. There are many restaurants on campus as well as hundreds nearby, either on Milton or in Downtown Flagstaff.

    NAU-Yuma branch shares a cafeteria with Arizona Western College. The cafeteria always has a variety and as a picky eater, the cafeteria staff are willing to accommodate to your needs.

    NAU has two locations for food (located on north and south campus). There are many different choices and the meal plans make the process very straight forward.

    Greek life is not huge at NAU, but it is a very close community. I was a member of a fraternity, and we had good relations with many of the other chapters. There are some parties and social events just like any Greek life organization at any school, but there is a big emphasis on community service and philanthropy events.

    Greek Life at NAU is different from most other campuses. Mountain View is a beautiful residence hall on NAU's campus which houses only Greek Life. Greeks have a sense of community and a stronger bond than you will find on most other campuses with a Greek Row (separate houses). Overall, great way to get involved and a great group of people.

    The Greek system isn't that big, but I have a few friends in it and they love it. The Greek dorm is also really nice and it is huge.

    We have Greek life, and the friends I have who have participated love it. However, it's not something that you must do in order to have a social life. Plenty of people opt out of Greek life, like me, and still have an awesome time up here. In the end, it's a good option, but not a necessity.

    Greek life is different style. Everybody from all the sororities and fraternities stay in the same large dorm building.
