This was worth a 6 hour drive. The campus tour was great and was very informed about everything. The campus is well maintained and clean. It's somewhat new and old. Very eco friendly too! We also had lunch in the cafeteria and it was really good too.

Every building has a history and purpose. Very "Green" university. Old Main is a lovely building. Everything is well kept and the students have a strong pride in their Lumberjack school.

We drove around Northern Arizona University. The grounds are well kept and integrated into the forest. The school is modern yet it seems to fit into the community and the environment. The sports fields, the arena and stadium are large and up to date. This would be a great place to go to school.

I am biased because I am an alumni but you can't get any better of a school than this. Great teachers, great courses and of course smack dab in the middle of Flagstaff. I have gone back a couple of times, most recently this past May, and they have changed a lot of stuff since my last visit in 2009... More

Was looking forward to the Art Museum. Felt lucky because it was 1. Open and 2. Found legal free parking. But alas... Whilst they have Riveras in their collection, they don't show them. As the young man explained to us, "they're for bragging rights, only."

The students we met were very helpful... More

Visited 5 college campus' in 4 states. NAU was one of the nicest ones. I like how NAU deals with the safety of their students. The ease and access to the town is an extra plus. The only negative I had was it was darn COLD - especially for Hawaiian girls.

We visited the campus bookstore and were able to park right outside. The bookstore is huge and offers a variety of wares for every age. We were looking for souvenirs for teens so this was a great option. The campus is beautiful...a lovely drive through it and you can stop to see the museum as well. A nice place to... More
