Why I Chose Northern Arizona University: From online research I noticed that the overall staff satisfaction and sense of community was extremely high. On my campus visit I felt extremely welcomed to NAU. Everyone is so kind and helpful, I know this will be a great place to call home and a place where I’ll be able to make a lasting impact and grow as a professional. Although I love my city (New York City) I love the outdoors and felt in love with the mountains and the dark sky.
