Finding the right college might be different from person to person, but it is in these differences that futures are formed and lives created. One merely needs to look into themselves and ask what they want most out of the next four years of their lives and then concentrate on making that a reality. By the time you know this, you'll be able to pick a school related to your goals and ambitions. It is only through knowing yourself that you'll be able to know what you want out of life, and once that difficult question is deciphered, choosing a school becomes a piece of cake. Enjoying college life includes this time of self-searching, because it is here you are able to do what you fully appreciate without restriction. It is here you are able to fully experiment and understand what you want most out of life, so I encourage all to get out there, meet new people, and try new activities. Shed your high school shell and open up to the world around you, in order to fully embrace this new lifestyle, because once four years are up, you'll be wishing you had them back.
I wish I would have known the pleasant nature of the majority of students and professors, or else I would have been able to fully appreciate my freshman year much more than I had. Instead, I stressed at the differences in area and lifestyle from back home, so I didn't fully make myself open until it was too late. I also would have liked to have known the many clubs and extra-curricular activities provided, so I could have been involved earlier. Finally, I wish I would have known how cold it gets up here, which is saying something.
I think people that shouldn't attend this school are those that go to college ONLY for the learning. I believe college is a place where you learn life lessons and find out about yourself, amidst the learning environment, which a city of Flagstaff beautifully provides. Not to say the education is bad here by any strech of the imagination, but rather that it has so much to offer away from the classroom, some may find themselves enraptured in distracting ways. If you're willing to balance social and scholastic lives, NAU is perfect. If not, I wouldn't attend.

College is what you make it. It's not about what school you get into or what you end up majoring in; it's what you learn about LIFE that's important. Parents: Don't make decisions for your children. Let them choose their schools. And once your children are away at college, let them be the ones to call you. Don't pester them. If they call you with complaints and problems, don't coddle them or solve the problems yourself. Encourage your child to be an adult and solve the problems on his or her own, and help them along the way. Students: There is no right college, and there is no right major. Visit all the schools that appeal to you, and go wherever feels "right" (after you get accepted, of course). Explore. Take classes that sound interesting, talk to people, and get involved. If there's something you want to do that your campus doesn't offer, do it anyway. Find other students who share your interests and start a club together. If you're unhappy with something, change it. College is what you make it, so make it what you want it to be.
The kind of person who should attend this school is someone who is open-minded and hungry for knowledge. The ideal NAU student might not be eager to learn in the classroom, but he or she should be enthusiastic about taking advantage of the diverse liberal culture and learning about how other people live. This person should also have no fear in the classroom; he or she must know the best class discussions begin when someone has something outrageous or out of the ordinary to say. The ideal NAU student speaks his or her mind without fear.
The best thing about NAU is that the people here?students and staff alike?embrace diversity. People of a different race, ethnicity, social class, gender/sexual identity, and/or sexual orientation are welcomed with smiles and open arms. This is better than anything else I could say about my school because it affects everything else in a positive way. Diversity brings variety and excitement to class discussions, and it also exposes the campus to different points of view. The great range of diversity also brings a lot of student activism to the campus. The best thing about NAU is diversity.
Everyone is diverse and unique.

Students should go to a college where they know they will feel safe, happy, and active.
The administrative office works very slow.

I would tell them to look at the cost of the schools. Are they willing to compromise their finacial security for a college that might not give them the end result they wanted? It will be hard but I do not recommen exceding their capacity for a college that might not be the right one. With that in mind, I would suggest to get involved and meet new people. That is the way to make memories and have a blast while maturing and preparing for the future.
There have been two times when I called the financial aid office and they had told me something that my parents did not have to pay their college loan until I was done with school. Well, it turns out that was not true and we have to start paying it off after the last disbursement next semester. That was very upsetting and now I have to take out another loan to pay off my parents' loan since we were not expecting those payments.
A great place for fun, outdoors, and liberal arts education.

Make sure they love the area and there are commonalities with home otherwise you will be very depressed.
There was not enough world or nationally recognized professors in our respected fields.

Take your time in selecting your college. Do not decide where to go based on where your friends are going, because that may not be what is best for you. Listen to your parents advice, but in the end, listen to your heart also. Research, research, research! This is a huge decision, and one that will affect you for years to come. Once you are at your college, find people that you have something in common with and be yourself. Don't spread yourself too thin and don't party too much! It will ruin your chances at success. Good luck!
Anyone who doesn't want a huge University and to get lost in the crowd. Anyone who wants to still be able to talk to their Professor.
It is a beautiful school with brick buildings, tall pillars, and trees everywhere. We have mountains nearby for skiing in the winter, and four fantastic seasons The campus is not too big and not too small. The classes are actually taught by the professors, not by associates.

I would suggest that students and parents get involved with the college experience. I think that they should take advantage of the new student orientations and mixers and learn what the college has to offer - before committing. I also think the dorms are great for first year students, are reasonably priced, and are a great way to get to know other students. I also think students need to work closely with financial aid and academic advisors before enrolling in classes - especially when they haven't chosen a program. Get all your general education requirements out of the way first.
Anyone interested in attending college in a small town, high altitude atmosphere. The college has comprehensive programs and makes learning fun.
I can't think of a type of person who would feel uncomfortable here - even though a majority of students are younger, there are a lot of returning students, too. The online program works well for many working adults.

The best advice I can offer is that the student makes the decision about where to go. They should pick somewhere they would feel comforatble adn become apart of the ollege community.
Any kind of person should attend this school. Those who should not are people who dislike cold weather and nature. Otherwise NAU is a great place to learn.
The worst part about my school from my personal experience is the art program. I am an art major and there is little emphasis on the art program. There is strong support for the arts in this community, especially in the jewlery and ceramics area, as well as music. However teh painting, drawing adn printmaking programs get somewhat left behind as far as courses offered.

With only 14,000 students, NAU is the perfect small-town university offering high academic standards, a wide assortment of extracurricular activities and numerous volunteer and leadership oppurtunities.
Before embarking on your college career you need to have at least a four-year plan. College is expensive and most likely you will need to take out loans or spend countless hours applying for scholarships that never come to fruition. You do not want to spend you entire life in college, after all college is supposed to prepare you for life. Also you will want to get the most bang for your buck. So have a plan. Pick a major and stick with it. If you are unsure of what you want to do with the rest of your life you may want to take a semester or two to work and save money while you are pondering this question. But take no more than two semesters and then get back in the game! Once you have a plan, carry it out and take advantage of the many oppurtunities that will come your way! You are young so have fun but don't become too distracted by the pleasures of life. Work hard and when all seems lost keep on keeping on. When all is said and done you will have spent your time and money well!
If you love the great outdoors, camping on the weekends, breath-taking mountain views from your dorm room, socializing and serving in a small community, more trees and grass than parking lots then this is the school for you!
