On the campus of Northern Arizona University, the Walkup Skydome was a modern marvel in its infancy and over the years has continued to marvel those that walk through its doors. The Dome was finished in 1977, and later on hosted its first sporting events. NAU Football defeated Montana in a thriller with a last second field goal. Since then, the Dome has seen many facelifts as well as amazing athletic achievements. The Dome regularly hosts tours, allowing visitors to walk the turf and get a closer look at the facility from an athlete’s point of view.
Established in 1899, Northern Arizona University has a long history.
