It has a very small and cozy atmosphere. It is a great school to attend.
The winters can be brutal but only if you dont like the cold. They could do more to connect students to each other.
There are a lot of fun people and things to do. Definitely a good place to attend.
The urgent care on campus sucks and is always slow. Some people really suck on campus.
I did end up attending NAU. Some of the best things are the nature on campus and the small sense of community. The also offer some really unique classes - such as ReReading Harry Potter.
There didnt seem to be much to do on campus when I was on the tour. It seemed like a lot of students werent around. No one seemed very helpful either when it came to answering questions.
NAU is a beautiful school and beautiful campus. The night life and college scene is amazing. Recommend getting a Buster Bowl or two. Also very fairly priced.
The campus while beautiful is so spread out, and with the elevation and weather it makes it very tough to get to class. In addition there is very little on campus housing.

NAU & Flagstaff are awesome! I visited NAU many times and was accepted there. It is beautiful, and it actually has seasons! I chose to go to the university in Tucson instead but you can't go...
I would visit this school again. I enjoyed the food at this school.
In my opinion housing was too far from classes. I would advise high school students to attend this school.
Two of my coworkers graduated from this school and they both loved going to college there. The student life is great, for a school at that level. It is also not expensive as many other schools.
This is not a top-notch university. The graduates I work with aren't as well educated in their fields or generally as graduates of other schools.
Being close to my mom. NOT being at ASU or Uof A where I had originally planned to go. The school size per class for a University was fantastic. By the time I graduated, I knew all my professors...
Being so far away from Phoenix where my mom lived and had a swimming pool. I could go done there every weekend to do my laundry and swim until November. Snow, lots and lots of snow. But we were...
The people and the small town feel
The classes could be more challenging
The lack of sport enthusiasm
The best thing about NAU is definitely the homey, relaxed, and laid back feel around campus. Everyone is super down to earth, friendly, and always willing to lend a helpful hand. Not too mention,...
The worst thing about this school is the amount of construction currently occurring on campus. Listening to the background noise of drills and tractors during your lecture is super distracting.
The weather is really nice compared to all of the heat everywhere else in Arizona
It is a tiny school
The faculty. They genuinely care about their students and they know you by name.
If you transfer from a junior college they will only accept some of the classes you took at the junior college.
