Why I chose NAU? I chose NAU because I feel that it is a place where professionals and students are completely free and comfortable to be who they truly are, and I love that. The NAU community is filled with wonderfully genuine individuals who truly care for
others and seek to create positive change on a daily basis. In addition, I chose NAU as a personal challenge for myself to step outside of my East Coast comfort zone and explore all that Flagstaff and the surrounding areas have to offer.
I know NAU will make a mighty fine home away from home for this Jersey Girl!
