College Senior

Greek Life: never heard of any greek activity on this campus

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: cops are everywhere and where they arent there are alert buttons for easy access to disbatch

2 College Senior

Campus Housing: dirty, tiny, and very close proximity (wickersham)

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: ridiculous prices for garbage places. it is nearly 4 times the cost of rent here for a place that is falling down than it is anywhere else in the lower 48

3 College Senior

Majors: I applied, was accepted, and registered for classes. I was a very smooth process.

2 College Senior

Majors: The curriculum is pretty standard but the professors are lacking. In the mechanical department there are only 2 teachers who speak english in a way that can be understood easily. The rest however have such thick accents that you spend more time trying to figure out what they said instead of understanding the material.

2 College Senior

Campus Strictness: the campus goes a bit overboard on the visitation in the dorms. The fact that I am 30 years old and have to check in with an 18 year old to have a friend over to study is a bit ridiculous.

2 College Senior

Scholarships: I was told by the financial aid employee before moving 4000 miles away from home that pretty much everyone who applies for scholarships gets them. She also went on to say that they have so much scholarship money that they cant ever seem to give it all away because not enought people apply. Now, going into my final year I have applied every year with good grades and not a single scholarship.

3 College Senior

Athletics: There is quite a bit of hype over our hockey team which is understandable since this is alaska but I have never even heard of another on campus sports team.

3 College Senior

Facilities: It seems to be pretty average across the board. Although, the engineering labs seem to be a bit outdated.

3 College Senior

Nightlife: There is no shortage of clubs/bars in this area, however the quality of most of them is extremely lacking.

4 College Senior

Diversity: campus seems to support any and all types of races, religions, and sexual orientations by use of clubs (GSA, etc.) and dorm placement.

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!
