Northern Arizona University is seeing the largest incoming, full-time, class in the school’s 123 year history. NAU is also projected to have the largest number of first-year Arizona resident students ever. The school says first-year students at NAU students have the highest core GPA in school history, as well as Arizona first-year students. NAU’s first-year and transfer students, from Arizona and elsewhere, also reflect the highest percentage of students of color, in school history. School officials also say there is a 32-percent increase in returning students, which are those who took a break from school, but reenrolled this year. There are also 160 new faculty members.
