NAU-Yavapai gains 50 students
The Daily Courier

PRESCOTT VALLEY - The Northern Arizona University-Yavapai campus started its fourth year recently with 50 new students, said Susan Johnstad, campus executive officer.

They are a combination of freshman and transfer students, Johnstad said, adding that she expects 20 additional students to start in October. She will have the official numbers of the total student body in a month.

"We are seeing more people start at different times of the year," Johnstad said.

NAU-Yavapai, located in the library building on the Civic Center complex, drew 130 new students a year ago.

At least half of the new students are majoring in applied human behavior, Johnstad said. She noted the entrepreneurship program is seeing the most growth of any of the four majors. The other majors are community development and sustainability, and service industry management.

A new full-time faculty member, James Subach, accounts for much of the growth in the entrepreneurship program, she said.

NAU in conjunction with Yavapai College and the Town of Prescott Valley opened with classes for teachers during the summer of 2009. A year later, the campus began offering bachelor's degree programs in which students can earn a degree in three instead of four years by taking classes year-round.
