With rival colleges in Phoenix, NAU is its own entity off the beaten path. Weather similar to New England, pine trees abound! Skateboarders and bikers should be more considerate, beautiful campus with so much to offer!

The area in and around Flagstaff is breathtaking. The University was very good and layed out well. It is the right choice for my daughter.

NAU began as a "normal school" in 1899. Since then it has evolved successively as a teachers college, state college, and now university. Although large, the university has maintained its reputation as a student centered undergraduate residential campus. In addition, it has developed graduate programs unique to the area. Particularly strong programs are those offered in hotel and restaurant management,... More

A nice weekend for my wife and myself to get away. Weather was a little unexpected as we had snow, but we had packed for this type of weather. Motel was not as expected and trains every 12 minutes kept me awake all night. Anything but the prime national chains are not worth the cost. The motel prices are pretty... More

located on the NAU campus, the Cline Library has an excellent local history collection. Other places of interest are marked with a scannable symbol; scan it on your smart phone and you will get a short description of the building and its history. There are several old buildings of interest, nearly all are on the northwest corner of the campus.... More

Two daughters and two degrees. One graduated in 2009 and one in 2013. Both have excellent jobs, one in sales in Denver and one in nursing in Tucson. Does not get any better than that. One thing I must say about NAU is they treat student like people and not just a number. Very personal unlike my experience with other... More

The size of the campus is large enough that you feel like you're on a big campus, but not so large that you get lost on it. Student accommodations are very nice and they and the town of Flagstaff are very supportive of their students.
