Northern Arizona University is a small university located in beautiful Flagstaff,Arizona ( 7.200 Feet ) . The campus is a green spot in the summer time due to the monsoon rains and covered with snow in the winter. It is a quite and safe place for the students.

I have a grandson here so my views may be somewhat prejudiced. Struck me as a "we are going to do it " school which is striving for equality with the other two public universities in Arizona, ASU in Tempe and U of Arizona in Tucson. Investment in physical facilities is impressive, as is, I suppose, investment in faculty.

My Daughter has attending NAU for 2 years now. The campus is amazing, the community even more so. We love it up here, and it give me an excuse to get out of the desert for a weekend. So much to see and do. Tour the campus, it is beautiful. Everyone is super nice.

I'm an intern here until december, and the campus is beautiful and the architecture is amazing. The traffic is very bad at some points. The only bad thing about it. Love it here.

NAU is part of the Arizona higher educational system and offers a variety of majors, a lovely campus in downtown Flagstaff, sports many extra curricular activities, skiing nearby at the Snow Bowl, and offers an excellent education for those who wish to go full time or part time.
