“My name is Natalie Ludwig and I’m an incoming freshman here at NAU. I come from a small town in California that’s about an hour north of the Golden Gate Bridge. I’ve been holding my breath this summer, hoping that NAU was going to move forward with letting us move onto campus. I’m staying in Wilson Hall with my super fun roommate. I can’t wait to meet new friends and explore Flagstaff. I have a love for photography, so much so that I’m majoring in it. I enjoy traveling and getting the opportunity to explore new cultures as well as surfing, sailing and of course, taking pictures. I hope this year goes smoothly and everyone stays safe and healthy.”
“I’m from Kapolei, Hawaii and I like to cook, play sports for fun and go on adventures. I’ll be living in Reilly Hall and my major is biology. I’m excited for a fresh start and for starting a new chapter in life. I want to make friends, so don’t be afraid to say 'hi' if you see me on campus.”
“My name is Chloe Walker and I am from Gilbert, Arizona. I love hanging out with my friends, going on road trips and finding fun things to do in the valley! I’m living in Sechrist [Hall] with my friend Meg. We both graduated from Williams Field High School. I am currently an exploratory major, but I want to major in either communication sciences and disorders or dental hygiene.
“I’m super excited to meet new people at NAU and explore the city. I’ve only been to Flagstaff a couple of times, but I love the area and I can’t wait to call it home. However, one thing I’m worried about is the weather. I’ve never really experienced anything but heat, so having all four seasons and being able to see the snow will be interesting.”
“My name is Katelyn Mason and I’m from Las Cruces, New Mexico. I love all things music. I play violin, piano, ukulele and I sing. I also love to paint, sew and cook and bake things for my friends. I am in the Honors College and I am a music education major. I’m a little nervous to move away from my hometown to a place where I don’t know anyone, but I am super excited to live in Flagstaff and meet tons of new people.”
“Hi, I’m William Guymon and I was born and raised in Arizona. From a young age, my hobbies include football and video games and really just anything to do with my homies. I’ll be in Cowden Hall and I’m majoring in business at the current moment. I’m really excited to see the great weather at NAU and some parties. I don’t have any worries. I feel like we’re just going to have a fun time.”
“I am from Goodyear, Arizona and my hobbies include traveling every chance I get, to hanging out with my friends, to simple things like taking walks and spending time alone. I will be in Tinsley Hall this year up at NAU, where I will be studying early childhood education and special education. I am so excited to get to meet new people and more up north. I can’t wait to make some more memories these next four years.”
“Something I am worried about is the workload amount. College, I know, is very different from high school and that makes me a little worried, but I’m looking forward to getting used to it. I can’t wait to be a Lumberjack these next four years.”
