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

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.

A mixture of the very old with the brand new. NAU is easy to discover on foot with lots of surprises. The indoor stadium is an architectural marvel. Always easy-going with slow, well controlled vehicle traffic.

We brought our daughter up for her tour of the campus. She loved everything about the school. As parents, we found little to complain about. The kids were placed into group based on their chosen field and the guides had lots of useful and helpful information. The campus is beautiful and lively.

I went to NAU over a decade ago and a lot has changed. My only negative is the campus has lost some of it's beautiful nature by so many renovations. On the positive for someone going to school or visiting it has a new feel with so many updated buildings. Be mindful where you park on campus as they will... More

NAU was very close to the hotel I stayed at in Flag. It's a public university with around 20,000 students. The campus is very nice and it's in an ideal location for student trips to the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Las Vegas and California. The San Francisco Peaks just north of Flagg are stunning and can be seen from the campus.
