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.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: A generally accepting mindset in the form of a 'live and let live' attitude seems to exist between the administration and the student body. With that said, there are certain issues with the effectiveness of the University Police Department. After having several items stolen from what should have been a secured area, the police where generally unhelpful in any sort of active role towards recovering my property.

Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: I do not party much beyond a certain group of fellow artists and those event generally occur at peoples homes or perhaps the Wood Center Pub.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: I do not often eat in many of the off campus dining locations so I cannot accurately gauge their quality.

3 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: Much like the rest of the modern world, UAF faces challenges regarding the subject of diversity. From my personal experiences I do not feel that it is any more or less successful than average when dealing with these challenges.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: If you're just living on campus, financial aid is a lot easier. But once I moved, suddenly I had to supply them with all sorts of tax forms and FAFSA stuff.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I don't really feel completely safe wherever I am in the world, but campus isn't too bad. I don't feel like I'm going to get jumped or anything, though I've heard some rumors.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's cheap, with a unique atmosphere and provides the chance to participate in programs and events strictly Alaskan.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I've lived in three dorms so far: Skarland, Bartlett, and McIntosh, the latter being the best of the three. It's two minutes from the main buildings and is about thirty seconds from the Tilly. Skarland just got remodeled though and has the best showers and building in general, but it's a bit far to walk. Bartlett was honestly pretty ghetto and I heard Moore is even worse.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't know much about Greek life.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: It's horrible. You HAVE to have a meal plan if you live on campus and it's not worth the enormous amount of money for it. Would not recommend.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: There seems to be plenty of internship positions available for bio majors. Many other programs are covered in the broad subject, so there's a chance of getting involved in all sorts of things – be it raising musk oxen or caribou or learning about the unique Alaskan wilderness and niches.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: Most parking lots on campus require a permit. Otherwise you'll be fined. Even if you work on campus, you have to get a permit.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: I don't party or anything, so I wouldn't know.
