NAU is an excellent school because of the community, the city, the resources and the professors. The finance professors really cared about my education and even supported me in finding jobs and making big purchases. I felt that they wanted me to really succeed and were honest with the class. They recommended that we take more math classes than what was actually required because it would be necessary in life, and it proved to be true! The only con: Unfortunately, NAU doesn't have a great reputation despite its obvious good reviews so when it comes to getting jobs, any place that says 'only graduates from top universities' won't hire you. The college of business has a stronger reputation and provides job placement assistance, but still most people don't think NAU is good because they don't spend as much money as ASU on marketing :/
I was originally very excited to be able to attend NAU's Nursing Program. However, my experience turned out to be awful. This program is a joke. Many of the teachers have no education background and (while smart) lack the ability to truly teach. I have had to commute up to 4 hours in 1 day for "clinical." The school has no desire to actually work with their students and place them where they want. For clinical placements, I have been told by a professor to "suck it up" and she will put us wherever she feels like it. This is in spite of family obligations, marries, children. etc. Flagstaff is not large enough to accommodate their nursing students. Be prepared to travel and commute. For our public health rotation, there were many times where I felt unsafe going into someone's home BY MYSELF. There were also dangerous situations the school put us in during our mental health rotation. The staff is unorganized and many clinical rotations consist of our poor professors trying desperately just to find a place for us to go. I would not recommend this program to any future students.
This School is a Joke ,don't waste your time! I couldn't get a job any better than if I had gone to work right after high school with just a HS degree. I even worked for Labor Ready for a while! It's a Ski and Party School the only thing I learned was how to use a Beer Bong! Just a bunch of Stoners and Partiers like right out of the Movie "Fast Times From Ridgemont High". The "professors" are a bunch of losers who couldn't get a job anywhere else.
I loved this college for the college experience, however when actually applying to medical schools this did not make the list for impressive colleges.
I love the campus and Flagstaff. I enjoyed my time there. I wish I'd lived on campus though. I feel like i would have been more involved and made more friends. I'm still good friends with my roommates and several friends from NAU.
NAU was a great college to attend! Lots of resources for students, beautiful campus, and wonderful Faculty.
My Educational Technology program was outstanding. Great professors and students who wanted to learn. I went back to school after 30 years away from education. I now work at a University in Academic Technology. Great people, great program! Instructors were knowledgeable and engaged students in learning. It was a challenging program but I only took two courses at a time so it was manageable.
Northern Arizona University is an incredible school. It is unique in that you have great classes and professors but smaller class sizes. They offer great programs to help out of state students, as well as programs that guarantee you to graduate in 4 years. The knowledge I got from attending their business school prepared me to be successful in a very high pace and intense business environment. I would highly recommend this school!
I loved my experience at NAU. Flagstaff is an amazing town to live it and really creates an atmosphere that really does elevate learning.
NAU is small enough that you get to know those in your program, and even those in related degrees, fairly well. It is very liberal in its thinking--a very mind opening experience for me. Some of its social activities are a little extreme, but overall it has a good blend of focus on education and activities to unwind.
