3 College Junior

Greek Life: I don't think UAF has a big greek life on campus. I just recently found out they even had a greek chapter.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I am not into sports nor do i pay too much attention to the sports programs going on on campus.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I think UAF is a great school, however, I think that some advisors should be more open to students who want to approach school differently. Some students do not want to take 15 credits a semester because of working for a living and I think schools should be okay with that.

4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: There are people from all over and you never know who you might meet or where they may be from.

4 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: I have never seen or heard of anyone on campus using drugs, and have never had to deal with drunk students.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everything in UAF is amazing

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everything in UAF is wonderful

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The amount of sexual assault is alarmingly high in Alaska

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The residential life is great here.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: There are only two fraternities and no sororities.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The pool, student gyms, and trails are amazing.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: There are a lot of career opportunities for students in the fields of Engineering and scientific fields of study. I would say there are more options for those students considering the university is very science oriented. However, there are a few options at job fairs for those in Liberal Arts degrees as well.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have been at the university for 4 years, with one studied abroad. Most of the classes are small, which allows the professors to better engage with their students. A lot of the professors do care about their student's success, rather than writing them off, and allowing them to fail the class. The campus isn't very large, which is nice in itself because the overall feel is like a community within a community.

Dorm life isn't terrible, however getting a wifi signal in the rooms is a bit difficult. There are food vendors allover campus, so eating between classes isn't much of a problem.

The average tuition payment is lower than in the continental US, which the reason for a number of people wanting to attend. Also, the University of Alaska Fairbanks has connections to other Arctic Research Institutes in foreign countries for Arctic Studies, as well as Mining and Engineering.

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
