    I received an academic scholarship, the Lumberjack award. Our financial responsibility was about $9,000 for the school year, which covered my room and board, a double room, books and fees, with ten meals per week and plenty of restaurant dollars to spend on campus.

    University Text & Tools is a great store near south campus that sells a lot of the NAU specific materials for a bit cheaper than the campus bookstore. Also, you can rent almost anything you need from the bookstore itself at a lower price.
