What is your overall opinion of this school?

Being at Northern Arizona University has been a nice experience. Leaving California, my home state, to move to another state away from my friends and family has been hard,but it has been a rewarding journey because the people here in Flagstaff are so friendly. It is very beautiful here and there is plenty of resources to help students,

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I only spent a few weeks going to class before I felt completely out of place. I had feedback from one professor while in attendance. I am a very friendly person and had a hard time connecting with other students. I was put into classes that had nothing to do with my major and that could not transfer to any other college I was interested in so I decided to withdraw.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There is so much to be said about this university, therefore I will try and hit the most important parts I feel an incoming student should know before thinking about attending NAU. In its current state, the university holds as an average, at best, institution. Whether it was the insane influx of students recently, or the lack of engagement with the students, the school fails to sustain its previously, by word of graduated students, decent performance. It's primary selling point seems to be its location, which itself means there is little to back it up. Behind their eco-friendly front are cold and empty insides. Their claims of being eco-friendly are nothing but short attempts of using reclaimed water, solar, etc. However this is nothing short of becoming the norm of colleges around the country. Because of their location, it is easy to hide behind the large Ponderosa pines. The lack of care from anyone besides the TA's, GA's and a handful of professors is overwhelming. They do not specialize in anything besides nursing, which I see is the only reason one should come here other than figuring out what you want to major in; when that happens I recommend one to move to another university that actually has a supportive and wide group that love doing what you want to do. The relationship between the university and the locals is insanely hideous. It only highlights how badly they have evolved. The university is such a large percentage of population and income of Flagstaff, you would think they would have at least a good relationship with the city. Housing rates off campus are off the charts, you feel unwelcome at every corner. Like communism during the 19th century, the university seems good on paper, until you actually go there. The college experience is muffled, strangled, and thrown into a 6 foot hole because of these specific inconsistencies at play. You can never expect a perfect college, however if they play their cards "right" they can somehow even make the very city they are located in have a distaste for the students, faculty, and entire institution.

Northern Arizona University has been my dream school for the past couple years. I have visited the campus a bunch of times to tour and I think it is absolutely amazing. If you are thinking of applying to this school you definitely should! You won't regret it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The curriculum is amazing. The most appealing aspect of my school are the amazing facilities that we have. The Business building is worth four million dollars to ensure students have the best learning opportunities possible. Every building is very well kept. The professors are very helpful and class sizes are relatively small which creates a more focused learning environment. We have endless access to different opportunities concerning internships, careers and more in-depth education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

At the time of writing this, I am a freshman living on campus at Northern Arizona University. The campus is definitely the most beautiful campus in Arizona, this is also the only campus that receives snow. Most of it seems to fall starting late December and ending late February. The paths and roads on campus are always cleared better than the city managed sidewalks and roads outside of campus. Class size is relatively small, around 35 students, for most classes. All of the professors seem to have an actual interest in your education and they try to help as much as they possibly can. The campus has a nice selection of fast food and also a buffet style dining hall. There are plenty more options within walking distance of campus as well. The only negative that I have experienced on this campus is the amount of construction going on in and around campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

NAU has a beautiful campus and amazing students. Most teachers adjust their office hours to the needs of the students and are always willing to respond to a student's email. There are lots of fun activities to participate in near and in the downtown area which isn't far from campus. The only I didn't give the campus a 5 star rating is because their variety of food choices is extremely limited and especially at night, but I think thats changing soon due to recent construction.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Northern Arizona University is in my opinion, the most favorable university in the state. The weather is beautiful and there are always activities available for students to partake in. Academics are incredible. Every classroom has it's own challenges and keeps the students involved. Professors are the best part of the university. Instructors are always available for students in and outside of class. Security is NAU's top priorities. If you are an upcoming college Freshman or contemplating about transferring to a different institution, give Northern Arizona University a shot! You won't regret it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

NAU is a beautiful campus with many wonderful people. All of my professors have been friendly, and by the end of my freshman year, I will have my Chinese minor. I am pursuing a BS in biology and because of the quiet nature of the campus, it is easy for me to study and seek helpful resources. I am having a great first year at NAU, and I hope to spend the next three years getting to know the campus, its staff, and my fellow students more.
