3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: It's not awful but it could be better, however for Fall 2014 the dining will be changing, so we'll see!

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: The diversity of students is okay, you'll see many Alaskan Natives, and a few foreigners.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Just apply online for your FAFSA and provide any documentation that they need. On average I believe that the aid you receive covers most of the costs, but not all. It's important to apply for every scholarship you're eligible for.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Bag checks on the weekend at the dorms to be sure that students aren't sporting alcohol or drugs when they shouldn't be, patrol cars to make sure that students aren't doing anything they shouldn't be out late at night to ensure safety.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: It is all about the Nanooks here, we are a very prideful campus! Each home game is attended by many people!

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Most students are very nice and non-judging. You feel very at home on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far I've made some great friends, and I've found a comfortable daily routine. My Professors have mostly been great and I find that the classes I'm most interested in have the best professors! Everyone is very nice here, there isn't a lot of drama or judging, most students are down to earth. I'd have to say that my favourite part of the day is spending time with my friends whether it be at the dorms or the Wood Center.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Security and Police are always patrolling and have quick reaction times for when they are needed, there is little to no crime, and over all I feel safe on campus. However, with many wooded areas, there are times when I feel unsafe and that I could be assaulted before being able to reach help.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Everything is within walking distance, the Wood Center which is a central hang-out provides many types of fun activities like bowling, billiard, and arcade games, the Library has every academic book you need for essays and research, and the social events that the students put together to enjoy are always extremely fun and social, like the annual bonfire!

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Up here in Alaska, students get opportunities like no other. You get to see the northern lights almost every night as they dance across the sky, you get to study arctic animals that you can only find up here, and rolling mountains are a gorgeous scene to wake up to every morning.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: WE'RE IN ALASKA. nothing beats that

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I really love this college!

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Everyone acts who they are, since it is so cold!

4 College Junior

Athletics: I love the athletics on campus! Intramurals!!

2 College Junior

Scholarships: Not many scholarships are given out unless you specifically talk to a professor and practically beg them to give you money

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: It could be better, it could be worse. You're welcome to have people over whenever you want, they can stay, but there are limits on the number of times someone can stay, which is very understandable

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Definitely way better off campus, but that's because I go to school in a decent city! Haha

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Luckily, I think they're changing around the food situation, but my campus does not offer the best healthy options, or much support for lactose intolerant people like me

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: 40 girls, One bathroom with 4 stalls and 6 sinks... It gets hectic sometimes. Rooms are small, just perfectly fit two single beds, two desks, two dressers and two closets. Housing process is easy, its online so its not bad.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: As a non-traditional student I find that the best options for me have been Cutler Apartments and Wickersham Hall. The recently added requirement that virtually any student who lives on campus is required to purchase some form of meal plan however is something that I question the legitimacy of.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: The UAF hockey team is the primary varsity sports team on campus. As for major sporting events, the primary one is the yearly competition with cross state rival UAA.

Parking: I do not own an automobile at the present time, thus any opinions regarding parking issues would be/are based purely on my interpretations of the comments of others.

4 Recent Alumnus

Weather: I personally enjoy the 'deep cold' which occurs during much of the academic year.

3 Recent Alumnus

Majors: From my interactions with other students I would estimate that there are a reasonably broad selection of majors available.

Recent Alumnus

Majors: I have never had a school related internship via UAF.
