4 Student Testimonials



Freshman · Education

I am absolutely in LOVE with NAU. I really found my home here by being surrounded by the right people, getting involved, and taking advantage of every opportunity. The professors really care about their students and provide so many opportunities for tutoring and extra help. Everyone on the campus is super friendly and welcoming. I could not be happier here!



Freshman · Nursing

I love all of my classes and my professors are very caring, considerate, and understanding. I love the greek life here and all of the friends I’ve made and the location of my campus.



Freshman · Education

Northern Arizona University is always encouraging students to do their best in their academics and to get involved on campus. There is many ways to get involved without having to join clubs, which I like. Most teachers are considerate and passionate about their subjects. The coursework is challenging but not unbeatable.



Freshman · Environmental Studies

I like the scenery, the campus is beautiful and bike-friendly. The professors are amazing and the classes can be educational and challenging. There is a variety of clubs to join.
