4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Generally I feel safe on campus, but I'm usually not here too late.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: in my field (arctic ecology/biology) this is a great school, and I'm confident about my future job prospects

4 College Junior

Athletics: I don't participate in athletics here, but I attend the hockey games and the university team is awesome!

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: A fantastic university in a beautiful natural setting very close to the Arctic Circle

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Not a priority of mine as a student.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Not a big part of my life as a student.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: UAF is dominated by atypical students, older and non-traditional.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The swimming pool is too small for the locker room and the gym is too big for the locker room. The food here is great. The cafeteria is massive, they have a all you can eat dinner for 10$ with a wide variety selection of food. Overall people are respectable in your typical school settings. Stay on track and you'll do great. I would choose this school again because the in state low tuition. There are only to universities in the state to choose from. This campus sits on a hill away from traffic and is huge and there is a lot of history involved and there is a lot of activities for student to take part of.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I believe the campus is safe, but I would normally walk with someone at night.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Don't think there are many options just because it's so cold in the winters.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: So far the people here are very helpful and sweet. It's a bit cold in the winter, but I think that makes for excellent study conditions.

1 College Senior

Overall Experience: Courses vary wildly in quality across departments and especially between professors. It may take 6+ years to earn a degree by taking the right instructors at the right times. Both semesters are very difficult emotionally because of the dark and cold, and many students do not make it out alive.

1 College Senior

Athletics: Well, there's hockey, but most of the players are rapists.

1 College Senior

Overall Experience: If you are thinking of coming here, DON'T. I wish I could have the last 5 years of my life back. A dreadful place, awful administration, the worst professors, and a prevalent atmosphere of despair.

Health & Safety: It really is a tight knit cmunity, that cares

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: There was a huge lack of communication and guidance. But we got it all figured out kind of.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: If you need it it will work!

2 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Everything costs so much even for students , gym racquetball wall climbing and the water is contaminated yet they continue to serve the fountains sending emails out saying drink at your own risk!

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Good opportunity great scaled models and there is so much opportunity 1 on 1 with proffers, online it's just incredible !

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: None, that i know of.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Needs to be upgraded. Unfortunately, that is not something that will happen anytime soon due to budget cuts.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Fantastic school.... Only problem -- Which all schools have a select few of-- are the hard headed professors who don't take mistakes very well to the point that they try to deny everything, even when proven wrong.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I'm not entirely sure about health & safety. I believe there was a title made to address the allowance of carrying a gun onto campus which was unsettling to me. I know there are some close minded people and worry if they would harm another group of people for just being different.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My experiences with courses and professors are relatively positive. There is a diverse array of classes available for many majors as well as many helpful instructors. My only concern is the math department which could improve a bit.
