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.
I would highly recommend the Construction Management Program at Northern Arizona University. The classes are small in size and led by extremely attentive and interactive professors. Because of the small class size, the Construction Management students form a very tight knit community full of people willing to help with schoolwork. Each class is interesting and relevant to the industry of Construction and the professors always have your best interests in mind. Lastly, NAU's Construction Management program hosts a "Contractor Night" once each week during both semesters in which a different contractor in Arizona will visit the campus and share information about their company, their experiences with the industry, and then offer interviews the next day. This, combined with the golf tournament and skeet shoot, make it easy to make connections and land an internship and/or full time job.
Northern Arizona University was a great institution to attend for my bachelor's degree. The school is on the smaller side which means I had more intimate classes and a lot more interaction and on-on-one time with my instructors. I lived on campus my first two years which was one of the best decisions I made at NAU. I was able to connect with a lot more of my peers and participate in plenty of events held throughout the year. My classes were great with instructors willing to work with me if I had unusual circumstances and my fellow students were friendly and also just looking to make new connections and branch out. The main concern I had at NAU was that my academic advisor was split between two different colleges and was not an expert in either. I kept track of my own degree progress to ensure I was meeting all requirements to graduate on time and made sure to just use my advisor as confirmation that I was on the correct path. NAU was a great experience for me and I definitely recommend it to future students.
