These schools are similar to Northern Arizona University in key aspects like size, setting, and academics.
100% of students
It a great school to form close relationships with professors and it is an incredibly friendly environment.
I wish there was more importance on sharing information on prevention of sexual assault and implement more policies.
Northern Arizona University is diverse, accepting, and welcoming to everyone. The campus is safe and beautiful and there are many activities and events to participate in on and off campus, and plenty of opportunities for you to meet new friends and build rapport with professors and future employers.
The only thing I would change is the food.
I really enjoy NAU! The classes are amazing, as well as the teachers. The College of Education is very nice, and the members are very helpful when you are lost or need help in figuring out your classes. I like how the classes are small but they are enough people to join in a conversation and discuss topics with. Do watch out, however, that there are certain general requirement classes with not many options if you are a first-year. I would also recommend trying to get into the Honors College because the dorms are super nice and there are many advantages.
I would make sure that you sign up for classes as soon as they are available, as well as for housing. Try to get a good GPA in high school because you might be able to get a scholarship that fully covers tuition. I would also try to research clubs early because it is hard to find information about them.
Beautiful campus and great environment
I like the location of Northern Arizona University a lot; Flagstaff is a beautiful city and definitely has the vibe of a college town. I am also in a sorority on campus and as greek life is pretty small at NAU it is really connected and not as intimidating as the greek life at larger schools.
I don't love all the professors that teach here, mostly in the chemistry department. I feel that they are not very good at teaching and teaching in a way that makes it very difficult to learn.
The town is awesome because there are so many hiking opportunities, as well as skiing at Snowbowl and the people here are super nice so it has been really easy to make friends!
At first, it was too similar to my hometown and I got homesick very often.
