My first trip to NAU's campus was to visit the bookstore. I was just about to begin my Master's program and I was excited to buy NAY gear. The campus is beautiful. Humphrey's Peak in the background...one of a kind campuses! No campus visit is complete without a trip to Starbucks!

We enjoyed all the opportunities/choices for food in the local vicinity, most within a quick walk. A couple of breweries (Beaver Street and Mother Road) were good, decent service, good brewery food and beers above other places we've visited (CO, OR, CA, NM)....

Beautiful campus, great education at a good value. Just had our last trip here when our daughter graduated in May. I am going to miss coming to visit her and this beautiful campus. We found something new on every trip.

We took our 15 year old on a drive through NAU and she was completely enthralled. Finally, she is excited at the prospect of college vs. dragging her feet visiting ASU!

Unfortunately, we arrived the day after an on-campus shooting and didn't experience NAU in it's normal state. But it is a gorgeous campus.

Our son is a Junior at NAU and he loves the university and Flagstaff. The campus is growing, there is a new science building and other facilities. We attended family week, enjoyed a great BBQ and football game. Go Lumberjacks!

NAU is the smallest of the three state universities in AZ. The campus is beautiful. Many major options are available. Flagstaff and NAU are a very different experience compared to U of A and ASU. If you're a winter sports enthusiast you're in a right spot. If you need a break from the snow, Sedona is just to the south.

I was in the area for Parents Weekend. The staff at NAU go over the top to make everyone have an enjoyable weekend. The football game was fun and exciting.

If ever there was a town that was molded by its student population it's Flag. I love the NAU campus it is clean, it is modern and it is vibrant. I've attended conferences here and have always been impressed by a vibrant student body. The lean toward green is something we all could emulate.
