Finding shortest route

Hello all. I have made my university's map in ArcGIS and now I am facing troubles in terms of finding the shortest distance and route between different points. For now I wrote a code in python took the nodes and weights of different edges connecting to those nodes and running Dijkstra's algorithm on it, but it sounds really naive. Can someone please help me in order to find the shortest distance between two nodes in the map via ArcGIS!

If you hace access to Network Analyst, you can do this type of analysis without programming it yourself:
