"I attended NAU online while working 12 hour days to support my family. NAU online's flexible scheduling made it easy to study while working. The classes and professors were supportive of me, and they also provided me lots of resources for post-graduation."

"I loved the university I attended for my undergraduate degree. It was not a huge university so that it was not overwhelming, but it was big enough to meet new people and attend fun events. There is decent transportation to get you around the school for your classes, and the class sizes are fairly good. First year 101 classes can be fairly big, but afterwards it gets to be about high school sized classes so that you actually get to know your professor and your classmates which is nice. As far as the classes go for the program, I really enjoyed them. There was only one teacher I did not like because they put their political views in the class, which was not appropriate, but they were a graduate student teaching and left right after they graduated so they are gone now. When choosing classes I would just be cautious of non-doctorate teachers teaching the class. All of the actual teachers were great though, and I honestly cannot pick a favorite or even one I did not like. They are all supportive, helpful, open, and absolutely great at what they do. You can tell they all enjoy their work because it shows in their lectures and how they interact with you. If you put in the effort to reach out, you will not be disappointed. The only way you will not make good connections with these professors is if you do not try to."

"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."

"Northern Arizona University (NAU) is a beautiful campus that is situated on a mountain at 7,000 feet! The campus provides an experience that is hard to find elsewhere. Meaning, anyone can go hiking, skiing, exploring, and swimming in the nearby rivers and lakes all day. The education at NAU is constantly improving and the professors and staff are dedicated to their students' success. I was able to ask any question about classes, graduate school, research opportunities, etc. and they would always find a way to help me out. I loved the time that I spent at NAU!"

"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."

"I thoroughly enjoyed attending NAU and living on campus. I lived in Tinsely Hall which was one of the best dorms on campus. I made a lot of good friends and those friendships helped me grow as an adult. The curriculum at NAU was great. I loved all of my teachers and learned a vast amount from them. I enjoyed Flagstaff very much and may decide to move there one day. My father, may he rest in peace, also loved Flagstaff."

"The psychology program is one of the most personal programs I have ever encountered. The teachers genuinely care about their students and desire to see them grow. They have many opportunities such as internships and research opportunities that will prepare each person for the future. The psychology program is geared toward helping each person know where their places are in the field. I personally had the opportunity to take part in these research and internship opportunities and realized the depth and breadth that a career in psychology has. It truly inspired me to make a difference in the world and to understand the value of every human. This program was one of the best choices I have ever made."

"This university is horrible. They treat you horrible, especially when you have financial issues. That is all I have to say about that. They don't allow you to sign up for classes or housing when you previously have holds on your account, even if you get the hold taken down."

"Northern Arizona University is nestled in the beautiful mountain town of Flagstaff. Not only do you get education from amazing, passionate teachers but you also get the scenic beauty and commandery of the Flagstaff community. You get the excitement, spirit, and experiences of a bigger college but the small class sizes and one on one experiences with teachers that are valued in education. There are many resources, programs, and organizations to fit any needs or wants you may have. Overall, NAU is more than a college; it will be your second home. Go Jacks!"
