Education takes a different point of view at Northern Arizona University, silhouetted against Flagstaff's San Francisco Peaks. Surrounded by aspen and pine trees in four distinct seasons, students are challenged to better themselves both intellectually and physically through a colorful array of classes and activities. Founded in 1899, NAU lays the groundwork for liberal arts education with opportunities to prepare for a number of specialized professions. Today, nearly 20,000 students embrace the future with their choice of 100 baccalaureate, 40 masters', and eight doctoral degrees. An events calendar covers athletics, music, art and more. The cultural scene at the University is kept active by various plays, dramas and concerts held at the Studio Theatre in Performing Arts Building (building 37). The Cline Assembly Hall in the Cline Library is also frequently used for ceremonies, lectures and talks.
