Northern Arizona University (NAU) is a public research university with its main campus in Flagstaff, Arizona. [8] Governed by the Arizona Board of Regents and accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, the university offers more than 150 baccalaureate programs and more than 100 graduate degree programs. It is classified among "R2: Doctoral Universities – High research activity". [9]

As of fall 2020, 29,569 students were enrolled, 21,495 at the Flagstaff campus. [10] The average cost of tuition and fees for a full-time, Arizona resident undergraduate student for two semesters was $11,896 in 2020, [11] and out-of-state undergraduates paid an estimated $26,642. [12] NAU also participates in the Western Undergraduate Exchange Program, which offers lower tuition rates for students from the Western United States. For 2020–21, WUE tuition and fees are $17,221. [13] NAU offers Flagstaff undergraduate students the Pledge Program, which guarantees the same tuition rate for four years.

History

The Teacher Training School (now Blome Building) in 1922

Initially named the Northern Arizona Normal School, the institution opened on September 11, 1899, with 23 students, two faculty members—one, Almon Nicholas Taylor, who was also the school president—and "two copies of Webster's International Dictionary bound in sheepskin" as teaching resources. [14] The first graduating class, in 1901, consisted of four women who received credentials to teach in the Arizona Territory. In 1925, the Arizona State Legislature allowed the school, which was then called the Northern Arizona State Teachers College (ASTC), to grant bachelor of education degrees. In 1929, the school became Arizona State Teachers College at Flagstaff. [15]

Also in 1929, the Great Depression struck the nation, and the ASTC found new meaning in community outreach. Rather than collapsing, the school endured through the depression. In fact, Grady Gammage, the school president at the time, described higher education as "a 'depression industry' that fared well in hard times." Despite financial difficulties, enrollment increased from 321 students to 535 students between 1930 and 1940, and graduate work was introduced in 1937. [16]

ASTC provided an education during economically trying times, often creating jobs to help students afford their education; they worked in the school-owned dairy farm, in the campus kitchen and dining hall, and as newspaper deliverers. The self-sufficiency of the college helped conserve monetary resources, and it was a major contributor to the local economy of the surrounding Flagstaff community, injecting almost a half million dollars in 1938. [17]

ASTC was known for its diverse student body and ethnic tolerance. In fact, the first Hopi to receive a college degree was Ida Mae Fredericks in 1939. [17] Students came from rural farms, mining families, the East Coast, and points between. During the depression, fraternities and clubs sprang up, reflecting the diversity of background and interests.

Enrollment dropped sharply at the beginning of World War II, dropping to 161 in 1945. [18] During this time, ASTC became a Navy V-12 program training site. [19] However, the end of World War II brought increased enrollment as returning veterans continued their education.

The end of the war also expanded programs beyond teaching degrees, especially in the fields of art and science. To reflect this growth, the school changed its name to Arizona State College at Flagstaff in 1945 and, in 1958, became Arizona State College after the former Arizona State College at Tempe became Arizona State University. Also in 1958, the forestry program was introduced. With further growth over the next two decades, the Arizona Board of Regents granted Arizona State College university status as Northern Arizona University in 1966. [15]

Campuses

Flagstaff campus

Set across 829 forested acres, the Flagstaff campus houses academic, administrative, and residential buildings. At 6,950 feet (2,120 m) above sea level, NAU is one of the highest-elevation, four-year college campuses in the country. The main campus is surrounded by the largest contiguous ponderosa pine forest in the world [20] and enjoys a four-season climate, with an average annual snowfall of 260 inches. Winter skiing is accessible at Arizona Snowbowl, an alpine ski resort located on the San Francisco Peaks, 7 miles (11 km) northwest of town and the Grand Canyon and Sedona are short drives away. [21] Flagstaff is regularly ranked among the best college towns in the United States. [22]

For many years, the university has prioritized sustainability initiatives, [23] and campus-wide programs and resources encourage the entire university community to get involved with sustainability efforts. There are more than a dozen LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design)-certified buildings on campus and all new construction must meet strict LEED standards. Dining services and facilities contribute to a composting initiative, collecting more than 300,000 pounds of material each year, which prevents 250 metric tons of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere. Much of the campus uses renewable wind and solar technologies and the university is investigating opportunities to utilize the vast ponderosa pine forests around campus for biomass electricity or heat production.

Statewide campuses and NAU Online

In addition to the more than 21,000 students who study on the Flagstaff campus, to provide access and affordability to all Arizona residents NAU currently serves another 8,000 students online and statewide. NAU offers more than 130 accredited degree programs at more than 20 statewide campuses [24]. NAU also has partnerships with community colleges and NAU–Yavapai, a collaboration with Yavapai College in Prescott Valley, Arizona. The university's oldest branch campus, and the largest, is NAU Yuma.

NAU Online [25] has two paths to degrees: traditional online and competency-based.

  • Traditional online courses conform to the regular semester schedule and tuition is based on credit hours.
  • The competency-based online model has weekly start dates and students work at their own pace. Payment for competency-based learning is based on a six-month flat subscription rate.

NAU houses nearly 10,500 students on campus. [55]

Freshman residence halls

Available freshman halls include Allen Hall, Campbell Hall, Cowden Hall, Honors College, McConnell Hall, Morton Hall, Rielly Hall, Sechrist Hall (a nine-story residence hall, the tallest building in northern Arizona), [56] Taylor Hall, Tinsley Hall, and Wilson Hall. [57]

Upper division housing

Upper-division suite-style and apartment housing is available to sophomores, juniors, and seniors. [58]

On-campus housing for upper-division students includes:

Calderón, Campus Heights, Gabaldon, Gillenwater, McDonald, McKay Village, Mountain View, Pine Ridge Village, Raymond, Roseberry, and South Village. [59]

Residents of family units are within the Flagstaff Unified School District. [60] Residents are zoned to Kinsey Elementary School, Mount Elden Middle School, and Flagstaff High School. [61]

NAU partner housing by American Campus Communities

Rising juniors and seniors currently living on campus have priority leasing status for university-partnered housing located on campus. [58] These halls are located on the NAU campus, but are operated by American Campus Communities: The Suites, Hilltop Townhomes, and Skyview. [62]

Athletics

Student-athletes compete at the intervarsity level in football (men); volleyball, soccer, golf, and swimming and diving (women); and basketball, cross country, indoor and outdoor track and field, and tennis (men and women). The university participates in 15 intercollegiate sports programs. [63] NAU teams compete at the Walkup Skydome, a multipurpose building providing facilities for football, basketball, indoor track and field, soccer, weight lifting, lacrosse, student recreation, major concert events, commencements, intramurals, and a variety of other university and community activities. [64]

The Rolle Activity Center provides physical education classrooms and contains courts for recreational and varsity sports, including NAU's volleyball team, with seating for almost 1,100. The building is named after Joseph C. Rolle—“Mr. Lumberjack” in 1989. Rolle played basketball from 1937 to 1941, served as student body president, and received a BA in 1941 and MA in education in 1950 from Arizona State College of Flagstaff. He later earned an EdS from Columbia University and then worked at NAU for 36 years in positions ranging from bookstore manager to Dean of Students and Dean of University Services. [65]

The Wall Aquatic Center in the Aquatic and Tennis Complex is one of the finest high-altitude swimming facilities in the world. [66]

The Lumberjacks compete at the NCAA Division I level in all sports. In football, the Lumberjacks compete at the Football Championship Subdivision level (formerly known as Division I-AA). NAU competes in the Big Sky Conference in all sports except swimming and diving, which are part of the Western Athletic Conference.

The Lumberjacks won the NCAA Men's Division I Cross Country Championship in 2016, 2017, and 2018. [67] The 2017 repeat title closed out a perfect season with a 53-point victory, placing five athletes in the top 40. The victory was the lowest score (74) at the NCAA Championships since 2014, and the Lumberjacks became the first repeat champions since 2013–14. [68] Director of Cross Country and Track and Field Michael Smith earned the Bill Dellinger Award as National Men's Coach of the Year and also picked up both the Big Sky's Men's and Women's Coach of the Year awards. In track and field, Smith was named the US Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Mountain Region Women's Indoor Coach of the Year in 2017 and 2018.

Maya Kalle-Bentzur of Israel set the school outdoor long jump record at 20' 6" (6.10 m), NAU records in both the women's indoor and outdoor long (20' 6".00) and triple jumps (41' 3".75), and 40' 5".00 in the indoor triple jump. [69] She was an NCAA All American in 1984. [70] [71] In 1989 she was inducted into the NAU Athletic Hall of Fame. [69]

Because of its high elevation, NAU's facilities are sometimes used for altitude training by endurance athletes.

On-campus activities

NAU has more than 400 recognized professional, academic, service, and social organizations; an intramural sports program; The Lumberjack student newspaper; and active residence hall organizations. [72]

Student-run media

The Lumberjack

Students can work at The Lumberjack, covering news of NAU and the region for Jackcentral.com and social media, and a print edition circulated throughout Flagstaff. The student-run newspaper is more than a century old and has numerous journalism awards to its credit. [73] [74]

The MIC sports team is a multimedia organization allowing students to cover sports across Arizona for TV, online, social media, and print.

NAZ Today, KJACK Radio, UTV Studios

Through UTV Studios, students produce short films and two student film festivals during each academic year. UTV 62, a student-run cable channel, operates 24 hours daily, seven days a week on campus channel 62.

Students also produce NAZ Today, which is broadcast on cable television throughout northern Arizona. It is the only local newscast in the region. In 2018, NAZ Today received national recognition from the Broadcast Education Association for " best student television newscast produced more than four days weekly." Students in NAU's Strategic Communication program publish NAZ Today stories on Facebook and Twitter, and maintain the show's website.

KJACK (KLJXLP, 107.1 FM) is an FCC-licensed radio station that gives students hands-on learning of the basics of radio and broadcasting. In addition to popular and alternative music, KJACK students provide live sports broadcasts, talk shows, and news.

NAU's televised news program, NAZ Today, airs Monday through Thursday in Flagstaff on NPG cable channel 4; formerly, it also aired on UniversityHouse (Dish Network channel 9411) until it folded. Since the shutdown of Channel 2 news in August 2008, NAZ Today is now the only TV news source for the Flagstaff area.

Members of the MIC sports team cover sports across Northern Arizona for various media platforms in the MIC. Students also cover Baseball Spring Training and other major sporting events in Phoenix.

Recreation services

The NAU Recreation Center was remodeled in the fall of 2011, creating the NAU Health and Learning Center in its place. Features include an indoor jogging track, a 38-foot climbing wall, a large weight room, a multipurpose gym, a cardio theatre, and 123,000 square feet of recreation opportunities. The Health and Learning Center also includes all of the on-campus medical services (previously housed in the Fronske Health Center), a pharmacy, and the offices for Disability Resources on campus. [75]

Intramural and club sports

More than 30 competitive and recreational intramural opportunities in individual and team sports are available. [76] Also, more than 40 sports clubs are classified as either competitive or recreational/instructional, including baseball, rugby, soccer, ice hockey, lacrosse, Quidditch, disc golf, kendo, mixed martial arts, and water polo. [77] The club tennis team competes in the national USTA Tennis on Campus league and won the USTA TOC Spring Invitational in 2017. [78]

Movies and other events

Unions and Student Activities offers many services and events for the campus community, such as movies and the popular Friday night AfterHours program produced by Sun Entertainment. SUN also presents concerts, comedians, free movies, trivia nights, dodgeball, and many other special events each year. The College of Arts and Letters presents classic films every Tuesday night during the school year and more than 400 music and theatrical performances, lectures, films, and art exhibitions annually.

Alumni

The NAU Alumni Association represents more than 160,000 alumni. [10]

Professional sports

The Arizona Cardinals of the NFL conducted their summer training camp at Northern Arizona University's Flagstaff campus for many years until 2013. [79] The Cardinals left Flagstaff to conduct their camp in Glendale in 2013. [80] Beginning in 2014, NAU entered into partnerships with the Phoenix Suns and the Phoenix Mercury of the NBA and WNBA respectively. [81]
