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.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: UAF has a great curriculum along with many great professors. The registration process is super easy once you know what is going on and when it is going on.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The program is great. The workload is a lot only because I have to work two other jobs to survive. I'm hoping to get an internship this summer because I have seen many opportunities available.
