Northern Arizona University Reviews
Also, as far as the town is concerned, I absolutely love being surrounded by the mountains and pine trees. With this comes all four seasons, which I love!
I would recommend NAU to any student who is looking for a more open-minded, welcoming community, and someone who is looking for a place that has all four seasons.
The food gets old, the town's creepy, people are shady, too many hippies and entitled tree-hugging ignoramuses. The police force has overrun the town and take up 10% of the traffic; they aren't good at their jobs either. They prefer to arrest first-time offenders (freshman) walking around drunk and underage than the plastered homeless native guy stabbing people and firing gunshots at dusk.
Anyways, I got over it after one year. It's also very cold and windy. First year's great though!
