Why I chose NAU: I never thought I'd leave California for college (having lived there my entire life), but something about NAU just felt right. I absolutely fell in love with it the first time I visited campus and I could not be happier with my decision to go here. Everything about it has turned out to be as great as I'd hoped: the people, the teachers, the staff- and especially the climate. Whether it's hot and sunny or cold and snowy, you can always count on it to be a beautiful day in Flagstaff. It's honestly been such an amazing place to live and learn, and I can't wait to see what the next few years have to offer.

It's important to me that they feel supported and encouraged during their time here on campus, and I can't wait to do what I can to ensure that it a positive experience.
