" I chose NAU because I was excited to see an educational opportunity in my own backyard and I was thrilled that I do not have to travel far. I can still work, go to school, and stay in my neighborhood was a huge plus for me. I like the idea of distance learning, so that I can study at my own place and in my own time. I feel like the faculty at NAU really care about their students. " Harmon Kruzie (Georgetown student)
