 Karlee Moxley
Building: C
Major: Speech-Language Sciences & Technology
Hometown: Sierra Vista, AZ

Why I Chose Northern Arizona University: After visiting NAU for my older sister's orientation, I fell in love with the campus. I knew this is where I wanted to be, not only because of everyone's positive and friendly attitudes, but because of the scenery and beauty of Flagstaff. I also appreciate NAU's smaller class sizes, which gives us the opportunity to stand out as a student and not be just a number.

Why I’m Excited to be an RA: I'm excited to be an RA because I want to help give students the best college experience possible. I love helping others and being someone they can always count on. I hope to be a positive influence, familiar face, and listening ear, all while making friends and memories that will last a life time.

I have come to love NAU and having the ability to relay my love for campus, education, and passion to my fellow students is a dream come true.
