I like NAU.

Keep in mind, my experience is VERY limited - I can only speak for the Geography, Planning, and Rec program in SBS.

I think this school is one of the hidden gems in the state. My program is very small, and I have managed to build really good relationships with just about all of the faculty in the department. Coursework is useful, challenging - but if I've ever needed help, I haven't had a problem getting any.

Living on campus is a bit of an experience, to say the least. You'll either love it or hate it. Living in Wilson, currently. It's loud, dirty, and generally unpleasant. But people have different experiences depending on where they end up. I'll probably live off campus from now on.

Food is iffy. Avoid the union - go to the dub. You won't regret it.

And Flagstaff itself is hit or miss. You have to look really hard for things going on, but once you find your scene - you're set.

The only downside are the University organizations, such a ResLife. They're just about useless - so expect to go it alone for any business outside of your department.
