Local Atmosphere: Its a great place if you are an outdoors person. I love to see the northern lights and the cold doesn't bother me. The summers here are absolutely gorgeous and they seem to go by so fast! The local atmosphere is very relaxed but serious.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It's great there are plenty of places to hang out and do a variety of things. Locals treat the students like everyone else. We don't have shopping malls however.

Local Atmosphere: Fairbanks is the second largest city in Alaska so the atmosphere is pretty diverse. Attractions such as the Cheena Hot Springs amongst other things are close by. The Department of Recreation, Adventure and Wellness does an awesome job at providing the students with adventures to go on thought the school year.
