4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My overall experience so far at UAF is great, and I wouldn't trade it for anything else!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far I have had more interviews about jobs than I've had at home! The career options are open and there are so many for students to try!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Good matching process, but the room could be a little more spacious but I'm getting what I need done and that's all that matters!

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: I think we have one fraternity, and you can't live there. So it's not really what most people would call Greek Life, but it's still a pretty cool experience for any student who wants to get involved in something like that!

3 College Freshman

Athletics: From what I've seen the athletics are a really big part of the school, especially ice hockey. Seeing as how we are up there in Ice Hockey, many people come around to see that. Our other sports are just as great as well, students go and see them quite frequently!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: From the time that I've been there, I have already felt the positive energy that radiates off the students and faculty. They do all that they can to make you feel welcome and secure at school, and I couldn't be happier about making this decision!

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I personally haven't had any issues.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I forgot to submit my application but they let me after the due date.

3 College Junior

Athletics: The gym is great but I've never actually gone to a game.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Due to the location not the teachers aren't very good at teaching because only those who want to live here are the ones who apply.

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.

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.
