Northern Arizona University Reviews
NAU has a library that is open 24 hours a day, which is basically my second home, and many other recourses on campus to help you succeed.
During this pandemic, NAU has implemented many ways to keep all students safe. These implementations include wearing a mask and mandatory COVID testing for all students.
I choose to give NAU four stars instead of five because sometimes I feel like this school could do a better job at expressing to the students what is needed. For example, think some of their advisors do not always know what classes are needed for certain degrees.
Other than that, I miss Flagstaff once in a while and would have loved to experience the full four years there. Make it count!
