Why I chose NAU: I was drawn to Flagstaff and NAU because of the connection to the great outdoors and the emphasis on diversity among the students, faculty, and staff. In addition to the supportive, student focused environment, NAU offers the opportunity to learn and grow as a new professional in the Student Affairs field. Flagstaff has quickly become my new home and base for new life adventures to come!

Why I chose NAU: I chose NAU to get a little distance from my home city while also being close enough to visit home when I would like to. I love the Flagstaff summers but a little reluctant each year when we get snow! NAU is a perfect not-too-big, not-too-small university and has a lot to offer. Plus, NAU has an affordable tuition which made it very appealing!
Why I’m excited to be an RA: I am so excited to work as an RA for my second year. I enjoy meeting new residents and being a face to talk to whenever any of you want to talk or seek advice! Being an RA is such a rewarding experience. I can't wait to get to know each of you and begin a great school year!

Why I chose NAU: As soon as I had step foot on campus, I fell in love. It's beautiful here in Flagstaff and it was a perfect fit for all of my needs. I also chose NAU because it is far enough but also close enough to home.
Why I’m excited to be an RA: I look forward to expanding my horizons and getting to know others who I may not have gotten to meet otherwise. Being a RA is also a great opportunity to be involved on campus in many different ways.
