NAU has a great community. I was a transfer student from Santa Barbara City College. I traded the beach for the mountains and it was amazing. Since I was a transfer, it was a little bit difficult to make friends. It became easier once I started having smaller class sizes and started focussing on my major. Although the school seems big, the town is very small. By the time I was a junior, I pretty much knew at least one person in every class. I never had a problem getting into the classes I needed. Some people say that NAU is extremely easy to get into, which is true, but I think the education is underrated by many. I can honestly say that the quality of my education was amazing. During my senior year, I was provided with internship opportunities for my capstone course which helped me be employed after graduation. The campus is beautiful and the teachers care. The location of campus is walking distance from downtown and has beautiful views. For someone who is looking for a school with lots to do outdoors, this is it. Summer is beautiful because of monsoon season, and winter is extremely cold. It can snow all the way until June! NAU is a great change of pace especially if you are looking for a mountain town vibe. What sold me on going to NAU was how incredibly kind everyone was while I toured campus. There are fraternities and sororities but it is against the law for sororities to have houses. Greek life house their own housing dorms on campus. This helps keeps the partying in control as well as the safety. So many building have been newly upgraded and the campus is very clean. I miss it already, and cannot wait to visit!
Attending Northern Arizona University is great over all! The school is constantly improving and growing and full of great students and activities too! One of the best parts was that tuition was locked in for your first four years of attendance. I made some of the best friendships of my life there. I never had any issues with academic advising or any professors. Of course, always read the professor reviews first when you can. At the very minimum, if you're willing to put in the time and work, you will be successful here. Every professor I had was very passionate about their courses. The campus is also full of amazing resources, be it tutoring, mental health, or physical health.
NAU was a great university for me to attend. I quickly discovered my community and found wonderful supports. As a first-generation college student, I found NAU to be very helpful and understanding as I was learning the ropes of attending a university. I was able to make strong relationships with my professors and of course, the campus is beautiful.
I attended community college. I knew right away that I didn't fit the college culture. I just wanted to read and gain knowledge. I also wanted flexibility. When I enrolled in NAU's online program, it was the perfect fit. It was flexible and manageable. I went to the campus of NAU to graduate and felt immense pride.
Northern Arizona University provides an amazing program for Teaching English as a Second or Foreign Language. Every professor I have come in contact with in this program has been an amazing instructor and genuinely want to provide NAU students with the best instruction possible. I can't speak for all programs at Northern Arizona University, but the English department (and all of the departments that includes) has been amazing in my experience!
Northern Arizona University has some of the most wonderful teachers that really care about their students. I have never been in an environment as amazing as an NAU Psychology classroom. I always felt like my voice was heard and that what I had to say was important to both the students and the instructor. I took many interesting classes, such as Forensic Archaeology, Behavior of Animals, Group Behavior, the Psychology of Terrorism, etc. There is nothing like NAU.
Very bad school, they don't really care about students in need and if you have financial issues they don't want and don't try to help out. Been trying to get a hold to someone for nearly 4 months with no clear response. If you ever need help with a specific issue you will have to be direct otherwise I won't work.
Amazing School. The students are in small classes and have the opportunity to have one on one interactions with their professors. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for a university experience with a meaningful relationship with your teachers.
Located on a fun mountain town with plenty of hiking and is quickly expanding. At the time I began studying at Northern Arizona University I had small class sizes of about 15-20 students. In the coming years, this quickly grew to a 30-40 student class size. I was an honors student and a Interdisciplinary Global Program (IGP) student. The engineering program felt underfunded at times, but I had great instructors that gave me an overall great experience.
Northern Arizona University (NAU) was an excellent school! I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration with a major in Finance and minors in Psychology and Spanish. The W.A. Franke College of Business is an impressive college within the university where I spent most of my time. It offers coursework that teach students the fundamentals of their chosen field but also supplements these concepts with real-world applications, which is highly valuable for today's business environment. In particular, the finance curriculum was supported by case studies that give students the opportunity to analyze actual business problems and develop solutions that could be implemented. The only thing that I wish were different is a more quantitative track of for finance majors. Finance is becoming increasingly more quantitative and technical, so I believe the core finance concepts should be supplemented with computer science and statistics.
