Northern Arizona University Top Questions

Describe your school to someone who's never heard of it.


NAU is overshadowed by Arizona State and University of Arizona, but I highly recommend NAU over any of the other two Arizona universities. The weather is nothing like the unbearable heat down in the Phoenix and Tuscon areas. In fact, I feel that the weather is the exact opposite. We get snow. Also, NAU is surrounded by luscious trees and a beautiful atmosphere while ASU (Arizona State) is surrounded by desert and dryness, the same with UA (University of Arizona). NAU is also a Division I university, meaning that we play some colleges that are nationally known, so we do get some recognition.
