The NAU Bucket List

December 1, 2016


It’s no secret that college is probably 4 of the best years of your life. They’re full of exciting adventures, meeting new people, making life-long friends, and of course letting loose and being a little crazy every once in awhile. Here I’ve comprised a bucket list of 40 things an NAU student should consider doing before they leave our sweet Flagstaff for good.
