            I am proud to say that I am an NAU Alumni and I worked for the university for years. NAU is a campus where you can discover, explore and learn all while soaking in the beauty of Northern Arizona. The classrooms designed to make you feel like a person, not a number and that shows in how long the professors have remained on campus. The bonds I made all those years ago are still strong today. Go Lumber Jacks! Forever in my heart!!!

            NAU has a good graduate program for International students who focus on Electrical or Computer Engineering.I always felt it like a close knit family and you would get great attention from the Professors. On top of everything the settings of the college is beautiful tucked under ponderosa pines and the great SanFrancisco Peaks.

          • Testimony
            2011-2014, Bachelor of Science (BS)

            While the liberal arts college was woefully neglected financially, the faculty and staff were absolutely phenomenal (particularly in the history department). I couldn't have asked for more interested, attentive, and concerned professors. And then there's Flagstaff, one of the most beautiful places in the entire state. If you camp, hike, fish, or just generally like being outside, there's not much better.
