Why I chose NAU? I chose NAU because the instant I walked onto campus in 2007, it felt like home. The energy, kindness, and genuine desire people have to help one another on a daily basis, is why I have been here for 8 years. It is a privilege to help students successfully transition into life on campus and see them thrive.
