Northern Arizona University Reviews
I am a freshman this year, and this is my first semester in college. So far, it has been great. I love my classes so much, and my teachers really care about their students and the material they teach. The campus is beautiful year round, which is a huge plus. While the student body size is large, it really feels like home. The campus is big, but you are always within walking distance of any building you could ever need. The food is not bad, with lots of options around campus open from 7am to 2am! There are some downsides, however. There is a large housing crisis, with housing on campus only guaranteed for freshman. A recent survey done on campus shows that only 9,000 out of 19,000 students can live on campus. That is the biggest, and one of the only, drawbacks to this school. It may seem difficult, but it is manageable, and extremely worth it. My time here will be well spent.
I am an incoming sophomore at NAU and I am majoring in Physics and Astronomy. I chose NAU because the very first moment I set foot on campus, I felt like I was home. The students and teachers are overwhelmingly nice and the location could not be more perfect. Downtown Flagstaff is so interesting and incredibly close to campus, and seeing the San Fransisco peaks while trekking to and from classes is such a unique and inspirational experience. I love that other students within my college (College of Engineering, Forestry, and Natural Sciences, CEFNS) get to attend educational colloquiums that occur on campus as well as at the Lowell Observatory that's just off campus, which also happens to be where Pluto was discovered! I'm glad that I am associated with the physics and astronomy community at NAU and I'm glad that I attend a university where I feel like I belong.
Northern Arizona University has been a great experience. The environment at Northern Arizona University is great, the people are nice and willing to help. The instructors that I have had have been wonderful with a few exceptions. There is a large variety of places to eat on campus. The campus itself is beautiful. At Northern Arizona University, I see students from all over the world! I had a girl from France in one of my classes, and I met a few people from China eating lunch. One thing that I would like to see change, however, is the amount of accessibility in the older dorms on campus. In the dorm I lived in this past semester my little sister could not visit me because I lived on the second floor and her wheelchair could not be lifted safely up the stairs. The only level that she could access was the first floor, and even that ramp from the lobby up to the rooms had not been used in years. The dorms that were built around the same time are not accessible for disabled either.
