Students can also view NAU news as soon as it's released, as well as take part in the school's official Facebook and Twitter feeds.
"We are pleased to offer students a way to stay connected with their online classes, school news, and information," said John Buxton, CEO of National American University. "With smartphones playing a large role in today's society, particularly for college students, we believe the app will be successful in helping students efficiently manage their time with online classes."
