Why I chose Northern Arizona University: I love the small town atmosphere, and the ability to be in Arizona and still be close to greenery and the mountains while avoiding the heat.

Something about you: I’ve worked with a variety of residents during my years in Students Affairs, including Honors, Freshmen, Graduate, and families.
