Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 1993

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.

Degree: Dental Hygiene
Graduation Year: 2011

I completed my Bachelor's of Dental Hygiene through Northern Arizona Universities online program. I had a great experience and was able to complete my degree in a short amount of time and a low cost. I am so glad that I completed my degree. Although it is not required to have a Bachelor's degree to be a hygienist in the clinical setting, it is important to help set you apart from the many applicants. It has also made it possible to teach in a dental hygiene program as an instructor. I was only able to accept an instructor position when it presented because I already had my degree.

I attended the extended campus at Chandler Gilbert Community College. The education program was amazing, all the staff and professors have been very helpful and I felt like they truly cared about all of us. I feel prepared to enter into the career field as teacher because of NAU.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2018

I would recommend perspectives students pursuing a degree in Elementary Education to attend Northern Arizona University. I would recommend this school and degree program because the content given and learned through the courses has allowed me to be the most prepared in becoming a successful teacher. Learning through real-world applications by being placed in various schools with multiple teachers which provides knowledge about the different styles of teaching. As well as learning to teach to a wide variety of students by understanding their needs and how to help them grow to become successful students that make an impact in society. Learning from instructors who have been teachers before and have specific knowledge about the topic they are teaching with effective strategies to implement in the classroom. The course materials at Northern Arizona University gave me the confidence to be this teacher for myself and my future students.

Degree: Business and Personal/Financial Services Marketing Operations
Graduation Year: 2020

NAU is a beautiful campus that has a lot of things to offer. There business program is onl progressing and the Greek life is great I have met a lot of people that will be in my wedding and learned a lot about myself in my freshman year. I will say the cops are a bit strict in Arizona but if your careful it's a great environment to be in with Sedona being so close and the Arizona snow bowl being Even closer. You won't be bored in the city of Flagstaff

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2012

I found Northern Arizona University to be an undervalued school. It is located in the small town of Flagstaff, Arizona less than 2 hours away from Phoenix, Arizona. I appreciated the small school environment and the assistance I could find in the writing and math centers when I wanted someone to review my work. NAU attracts a medley of personalities to its campus. I enjoyed the cold weather and snow storms that make it to this little campus each winter. I found this small, liberal arts school to be helpful to my academic and social development. Most of my classes were taught by professors who had impressive academic resumes, as opposed to graduate students. I have felt prepared for the jobs that I have had since graduating from NAU, and I am pleased with my degree from the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences. I would place the earning potential of NAU graduates in the same vein as those who graduated from Arizona State University and University of Arizona. In regard to student diversity, the school is a part of the Western Undergraduate Exchange Program (WUE) which allows students from specific western states to come to NAU as an in-state student where they will pay less for tuition than an out-of-state student normally would. This school attracts students mostly from Arizona, California, Hawaii, and Alaska. I found that a large percentage of my classmates were from Phoenix, Arizona, though. There were also a number of international exchange students from the Middle East and Europe that attended NAU for one semester or a year. When it comes to safety, as with every location where a number of young adults are concentrated, there are security concerns. However, I never personally felt unsafe walking on campus, even late at night. There are students whose on-campus job is to be available to escort students on campus if they need assistance, or feel unsafe. In recent years the university has been increasing enrollment and construction on campus. The university lost a significant amount of funding from the state, which has placed NAU in a predicament of trying to remain a small school, but also needing to increase enrollment. In conclusion, I highly recommend this school to anyone who enjoys snow, and the outdoors, or for anyone who is looking for opportunities to get involved in campus organizations. I found NAU to be a welcoming and non-threatening environment to learn about anything I was interested in.

Degree: Special Education and Teaching, General
Graduation Year: 2017

I loved going to Northern Arizona University. The college of education is a great college that prepares future teachers to be the best they can possibly be. NAU has prepared me to teach the diverse cultures I will experience in teaching, as well as, preparing me for getting my masters at Arizona State University.

Degree: Art Teacher Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I transferred into Northern Arizona University from my local community college as a third year/Junior. The application and transfer process was nearly effortless - cheaper application fees than most of the other schools I had applied to, and once my application was submitted & then accepted, NAU representatives were quick to contact me in terms of accepting enrollment (planning college tour, what questions did I have, etc). Then once I accepted my enrollment to NAU, representatives were aware of my distance from the college. I was transferring/moving from Northern California so they were very accommodating when I said I was unable to make orientation in person. They put together an online orientation for me to attend and set up a skype/phone call appointment with a counselor to discuss curriculum pacing and courses I needed to take in order to obtain my Bachelors in Art Education within the appropriate time frame. The degree itself was very small - but the staff was incredible. I paced through this program, with the same group of ~25 other students and we all became very close. The leader of the Art Ed Dept, Pamela Stephens, made us all feel very "at home" and guided us through every step of the way with ease. All other professors in the arts department. Getting my placement for student teaching was also made super easy - I think being a part of such a small program made it easy to accomplish all the paperwork because one-on-one time with the professor was easily attainable. Something that is the "norm" for most, if not all, degrees at NAU. Help and support continued from staff even as I was completing my student teaching in Goodyear, AZ and was no longer in Flagstaff or on the Mountain Campus. I can honestly say that I was very fortunate to have each and every one of my professors at this University because they all truly care about the well-being and success of the entire student body. Not to mention they are all excellent educators in their respective fields. Overall, a wonderful and positive educational experience.

Degree: Supply Chain Management
Graduation Year: 2018

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Northern Arizona University and have received great advisement. My major, Supply Chain Management and Logistics will take me about two years to complete and my advisor has walked me through each and every step to guide me down the right path. I have never had a bad experience with Northern Arizona University and would recommend this school to anyone. The classes I have taken so far have taught me so much pertaining my major and I can't wait to further my education here.

Degree: Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2016

NAU is located in a small town but has a lot to offer on and off campus. The university offers a large variety of majors and does its best to provide great resources for each college. As a science major I enjoyed the benefits of great lab equipment and supplies as well as computer labs available campus wide. The campus itself is beautiful and the city offers amazing weather. Snowboarding, hiking, bars, shopping are all available in this diverse college town. I enjoyed my four years at NAU and gained so many experiences in Flagstaff.
