My wife and I work in higher ed so we love visiting college and university campuses. We were visiting historic Flagstaff so we could resist visiting the NAU campus. Historic Flagstaff was alive with students, millennials, parents and tourists at restaurants, stores, galleries and bars. It feels like a n extension of campus. The campus is sprawling and lush.

This campus is a very large campus for a regional state university which surprised my wife and I but we enjoyed our short visit. We learned more about it's connection to forestry and visited the Riordan House while on campus. Certainly worth a short visit if you enjoy college campuses and history as we do! Enjoy!

Love NAU! Just a great place to walk around, and so close to fun eats and shopping! Check out the restaurant at the far end of campus, by Old Main.

NAU is fantastic! We attended the Orientation in July and had a great day. Very beautiful campus, great presentation and tour, and even the cafeteria food was good! My daughter loved the campus and feels that this is the college for her. Skiing is nearby, free movie nights, great concerts on campus and big dorm rooms. Downtown Flagstaff was awesome... More

A beautiful campus with still lots of construction going on. It is a not too big a university with outstanding programs in Forestry, Business and Hotel and Restaurant Management, as well as others. Most students stay in dorms as it has a huge variety in possibilities to live on campus. Besides that, a friendly small town and beautiful nature all... More

very nice campus with well kept buildings. looking forward to opening of new natatorium/tennis center. NAU with forward thinking for investing in athletics, top notch facilities will attract attention to the university.

My wife and I are NAU alumni so we are biased towards it! On our most recent visit to Flagstaff this past weekend we took our two girls through the campus. We were able to tour a dorm room in Sechrist Hall to show them what campus living is like. We were surprised by how much dorm rooms have improved...carpet... More

It used to be that not too many people in the U.S. or abroad had heard of this school in an idyllically beautiful location. Now the school enrollment has grown considerably. There is a culture of staff/administration helping students who want to help themselves, students who might be struggling or students who want to excel. It's a nurturing environment. Flagstaff's...

NAU is a wonderful university. There are always things going on there, including concerts, plays and sporting events. It has a small college feel where students walk, board or bike around campus with cars being kept to the perimeters. It's a wonderful place to go to school.
