The teachers that I have had for the most part have been amazing. Use upperclassman and online prof. grading sites as a resource though, because there are a few snoozers out here. If you can catch the right professor at this school, they can change your life.

    Ha! I was the freshman who couldn't wait to get away from home! I am from the desert, the sunshine, the warm winters. So, what was I thinking?!? NAU is a Beautiful college campus. I fell in love with the Vermont like scenery when viewing photos of the golden and burnt orange fall foliage. In person, it is spectacular! The campus is situated in one of the cleanest, and most picturesque towns in Arizona. The snow-capped San Francisco Peaks are a majestic backdrop and the town is surrounded by tall pines and quaking Aspen trees. Interesting architecture and hundred-plus year old buildings contribute their rich history and beauty to this campus and town. The train service in Flagstaff connects with states near and far and adds a feeling of nostalgia. Shuttle service is always available to the Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix for weekend visits and NAU has recently partnered with Enterprise Rental Cars to provide rental cars for drivers 18 and over, a practice that is generally unheard of! There so many departments here, with new facilities for the Bio-Sciences going up as I write this. The Performing Arts Center is wonderful, Franke Business School, Hospitality Program, Sports, Nursing, Dental Hygienics, Communications and Education are just a few of the highly respected avenues to follow here. And if your interest is in Forestry, this is probably the Nation's finest program. With the Grand Canyon National Park as well as others in AZ, there is nothing comparable to surround those with a love of the outdoors. Students come from all over the world to attend NAU. So, what was I thinking? I will tell you! Where else could I attend college while living in such a splendorous setting? Snow sports? We've got them! The Snow Bowl Ski area is right here in Flagstaff! Before the snow flies it's breathtaking to ride the lifts to the top to view the town and surrounding areas. And if I need to warm up, I just shuttle the two hours home to my mama. It's Heaven on earth!

    Its a great school with a great atmosphere, not to mention the weather. It's not the school for me however and i'll be transferring out to ASU my second semester. The small town feel is great for some, but not for what i want with my education.

    Northern Arizona University is one of the most beautiful campuses I have ever seen. The staff and instructors are focused on the success of the student and not just giving grades a few times a month. I am proud to be a part of Northern Arizona University.

    The NAU campus is clean, and although there is a large diversity of students, everyone is very friendly. It is affordable, even for out of state students. The majority of professors are very accessible and ready to help out any students who need it.
