Competitive in a range of athletics, NAU fans are all about their Jacks. Lumberjacks that is. From historic Lumberjack Stadium to the Rolle Activity Center, NAU fans cheer on their Lumberjacks in any setting. But it’s the famous Walkup Skydome that truly combines NAU's altitude with Lumberjack attitude. The crown jewel of NAU facilities is the third largest clear-span timber dome in the world, sits 7,000 feet above sea level and hosts a variety of athletic, concert and university events.

Style Facts:
NAU’s mascot, Louie the Lumberjack, has been used since 1915 and is a nod to Flagstaff’s early days as a booming timber town. And though his image has changed several times over the years, Louie still carries an axe to symbolize the area’s timber background. NAU’s official school colors, navy blue and sage green, also nod to Flagstaff’s mountainous region and surrounding pine forests, although NAU’s athletic teams proudly wear blue and gold.
