Why I chose NAU: Since the moment I stepped on campus, I felt extremely welcomed at NAU and that this was going to be a place I could call home. Everyone is so kind and helpful that I know this is the place I can grow as a professional, and hopefully make a lasting impact.

Morton Resident Assistants

2015 Taylor Fosselman - Morton
Name: Taylor Fosselman
Major: Sophomore/Business Management
Hometown: San Dimas, CA

Why I chose Northern Arizona University: 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 more happy 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.

Why I'm excited to be an RA: I just really love being able to help people and being someone others can count on, which is such a big aspect of being an RA. So, although there are tons of things I'm looking forward to, that's probably what I'm most excited about!

2015 Cara Pocano - Morton
Name: Cara Pocano
Major: Biomedical Science

Why I chose Northern Arizona University: I love the friendly atmosphere of campus, and the endless hiking potential of Flagstaff! NAU also offers a multitude of science classes, allowing me to take courses that interest me.

Why I'm excited for this year: I am excited to make a difference in resident's lives and support them through their transition to NAU. I want to provide a supportive first year college experience, and enable residents to fall in love with not only NAU, but with Flagstaff as well.
