Linda Imonode graduated from NAU in 2003, as a Communications major. She is currently the Staff Attorney for the Court of Appeals of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe.
I love NAU because it nurtured the intellectual, social, and emotional growth that occurred during my college years. I took advantage of the small classes offered at NAU and truly felt engaged by my professors and classmates. My way of thinking was challenged inside and outside the classroom on a regular basis. I lived on campus all four years, which allowed me to take advantage of the many clubs, activities, and social events on campus. I went to homecoming games with my hall mates and camping with friends I’d made in class. Flagstaff is such a beautiful city that I found myself hiking, biking and camping more than I had ever done before. I built a community of friends at NAU whose friendships still sustain me today. In addition, I always felt like the faculty and staff were supportive and wanted me to succeed at NAU and beyond.
I encourage current and future students to take advantage of the smaller classes, live on campus and get involved. Your experiences at NAU will stay with you for years to come and the growth and friendships you gain will stay with you for a lifetime.
