Experience the people, the programs, and the community of Northern Arizona University! Every fall, during Family Weekend, parents and families of students visit campus and experience life as a Lumberjack.
A beloved tradition since 1924, Homecoming connects NAU to the community as we welcome returning alumni to enjoy a week of campus events and activities.
Greek Week is all about the community. Our on-campus fraternities and sororities team up to win various awards centered on community service and philanthropy, and all money raised during the week is donated to local and national charities.
Male students compete in this mock beauty pageant to show their Homecoming pride. The winner receives an impressive prize package that includes gift certificates from local businesses and rides with the Kayettes in the downtown Flagstaff Homecoming parade.
Residents of Taylor Hall don’t just present the same old haunted house. Students and Flagstaff community members enjoy Halloween magic while raising money for charity and participating in a canned food drive.
NAU’s Earth Week joins NAU with the community in celebrating fun, sustainable solutions that positively affect our environment.
Celebrating the heritages and cultural traditions of all our Native American, Asian-Pacific American, African American, and Hispanic American students is a critical aspect of our commitment towards creating an inclusive campus community.
Near the end of the fall semester, Holiday Week celebrates the change of seasons and sets the stage for the upcoming winter break.
On August 30, 2007, a Presidential Decree proclaimed Friday of each and every work week ”True Blue Friday.“ Students, faculty, staff, and the community show their pride by wearing Northern Arizona University colors and gear.
Join us in showing your Lumberjack spirit and being part of this NAU tradition.
