4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's a toss-up. Some professors are amazingly supportive and helpful, with great class structure and effective teaching styles. But others are either extremely lazy and distant, or downright hindering. I had one art professor in particular that pretty much ignored her students and hardly gave any in class instruction; relying on the internet or us self-teaching. It was horrible. I didn't feel like I learned anything the entire semester, and my art actually took a step back and got worse because of her.

Health & Safety: The dorms and campus in general are not exactly in a good part of town, so it unnerves me that just anyone can walk onto campus. The art building in particular is way out beyond everything else, with only one walkway leading to it, so I avoid walking this at night and early morning. I don't feel that security would be available on campus in a time of need, so I am taking extra precautions to stay safe on my own.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Its a great school. It has very friendly faculty and students, and great programs.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Considering that I don't know too much about the Greek life on campus, it does not have a big presence. I don't know anyone involved in Greek life personally, so I don't have much to say on this subject.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: Not many students have any school spirit for the team or the school itself. The athletes seem distant and "better" than the rest of us non-athletic students, and we still have to pay the athletic fee even if we don't use the facilities.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The University of Alaska is definitely a school for "outdoorsy" people, and it's also good for Engineering and Nursing majors. However, it lacks in what one might call a "college experience", and the higher-ups care more about sports than anything else. Many programs do not get the funding that they may need, and suffer in quality because of this. I am neither an outdoorsy person nor an Engineering or Nursing major, so I would definitely go back and choose a different school if I could.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have enjoyed the majority of my professors and courses. They are all very helpful in the success of students.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This university has some of the best programs, they are competitive and only the best are selected to move forward. This produces successful graduates.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I enjoy getting the health newsletters sent by the university.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't participate in a sorority or fraternity. I am however apart of Alpha Sigma Pi, The National Society of Leadership and Success and I am very happy with this.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I don't participate in the athletics side of college.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So grateful I'm apart of this institution.

4 College Freshman

Academics: For the mmost part, the professors always want to help out the students. The registering is very easy to do

4 College Freshman

Diversity: The diversity at UAA is very noticeable. Most people are generally very accepting of anyone

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The experiences i have had with professors have been amazing. Most of the professors i have had are very willing to aid or help a student on anything.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I generally feel very safe at UAA. There are emergency phones nearby.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everyone at UAA gets the opportunity to go to the job fair when it comes to UAA. A lot of people recruit new employees from that

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are frequent email messages about suspicious individuals on campus, but these are mostly around student housing.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are activities and internships related to my major available.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I lived here for a while. Only go with the campus if you don't have another home in Anchorage. The buildings are fine, but the location is inconvenient and the layout discourages mingling between students.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: Honestly, I see flyers for this stuff but I never pick them up. The idea of trying to party in UAA's cold, crappy MAC housing units is more depressing than inviting.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: UAA has some really great sports teams, and the frequent sporting events constitute the largest community gatherings the college has.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school is fine. It services the entire Anchorage area, so expect to rub shoulders with lots of adults. I've never had a teacher that wasn't passionate about the thing they were teaching, although some haven't been good at it. The sprawling campus feels like a giant high school, with little central focus or community spirit. I rarely have a class with the same person more than once. The campus housing is adequate, but cut-off from the rest of campus by roads and crosswalks. Most of UAA's students commute in from the rest of the city and have jobs and lives outside of the university. Don't come in expecting a tight-knit community or a classic college experience. That said, many brilliant teachers work at this university, and many brilliant students attend.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Student's are quite involved in school spirit. Students like to dress up in team colors and provide a lot of enthusiasm.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My overall experience at school is great so far, I am a full-time student and I am completing courses quickly and I am getting good feedback from my teachers about my academics.
