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

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

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.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: People come from all different types of backgrounds.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: Every one is white or Native Alaskan. The white people don't like the Native's that much because they say the Natives have a drinking problem (yeah ok.. but the university has a pub on campus and a bar down the street) anyway...The only time I have seen black people was in the spring semester, in the winter I never see them. The Natives are cool and they always feed you with good traditional food (ok I like it some may or may not). Some Spanish people are here but not many. The international students have good food and they are happy all the time (if you can, you should get to know some. So you can eat good food an be happy as well). Everyone is mostly republicans they are the ones with the money but you will never tell because no one flaunts it up here. But the hippies are the best people on campus and the real traditional elders and Natives are the best people to get to know. because you learn the true Alaskan ways and you learn how to survive when its -56F. The other people just drink and party...that gets old after a while.
