Northern Arizona University
Education takes a different point of view at Northern Arizona University, silhouetted against Flagstaff's San Francisco Peaks. Surrounded by aspen and pine trees in four distinct seasons, students are challenged to better themselves both intellectually and physically through a colorful array of classes and activities. Founded in 1899, NAU lays the groundwork for liberal arts education with opportunities to prepare for a number of specialized professions. Today, nearly 20,000 students embrace the future with their choice of 100 baccalaureate, 40 masters', and eight doctoral degrees. An events calendar covers athletics, music, art and more. The cultural scene at the University is kept active by various plays, dramas and concerts held at the Studio Theatre in Performing Arts Building (building 37). The Cline Assembly Hall in the Cline Library is also frequently used for ceremonies, lectures and talks.
NAU should be a nice campus. It has beautiful mountains as the back drop, but it's a very user "unfriendly" campus. If you can get through the traffic, the constuction and the students darting across the road, you'll find that there is not too much to see. ASU is much better.
Wow! The campus is nessled at the base of the sacred San Francisco Peaks. The local Native Americans believe that Kachina Warior Sprits live in the peaks. They travel down to the Navajo reservation during the winter solestace as Pow Wows are being held.
The place is sacred to me, a Northern Arizona University graduate. Flagstaff and the surrounding area have everything you could ever ask for. Mountain biking, hiking, camping, fishing, golf, historic downtown, Route 66, the Grand Canyon, skiing, nitelife, and in my opinion one of the best universities in the country.
I now live and work in Glasgow, Scotland which in itself is a very beautiful and cultural city, but I can never let go of Flagstaff. It will always be in my thoughs and in my heart, it is a place that you could never only visit once. It truly is a sacred place.

interesting about the structure is that the two sides are mirror images, with a huge common area in the ...
