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: I chose NAU because they offer a spectacular Nursing program, and have some of the best Nursing Professors in the state. I fell in love with NAU's campus on my tour, and couldn't help but enjoy the wonderful weather. NAU is my second home!
Why I’m excited to be an RA: I am so excited to be working as an RA in South Village because I get to work with so many different kinds of students, including upperclassmen, international students, and families. It is so rewarding to watch my residents succeed at all they accomplish and to be there to help and encourage them along the way. I love being able to interact with students every day and to learn from them!

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.

Why I chose NAU: I choose NAU to expand my experiences and understanding of the world. NAU is a beautiful campus that provides plenty of opportunities to explore and experience nature and all it has to offer. It is the closest I can get to experiencing a new environment without having to travel outside of Arizona and still being close to friends and family.
Why I’m excited to be an RA: As a returning RA, I am excited to apply everything I have learned to make this year a truly amazing experience for my residents. I hope to serve more as a mentor and resource to help my residents grow and develop as individuals and in return grow as a leader in my community. I want to challenge my residents to step outside of their comfort zones, try new things, and overall have a great unforgettable year.
