3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: UAF is a small school with good academics and friendly people. Parties are not very great and the campus is no beautiful wonderland. The engineering program is one of the best in the country which is why it attracts many engineer majors. Alaska is a beautiful place to live but if you are not into outdoor winter activities then this is not the place for you. Attending UAF will be an interesting expierence but it can get very boring, cold, and dark during the school year. It is mainly alaskan locals that attend this school because we can use the alaska performance scholarship to cut back costs.

Overall Experience: I didn't make much friends

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My favorite experiences have included school sponsored events, including the bonfires at the beginning of the academic year and open mic night. My school, The University of Alaska Fairbanks, is the furthest north university in the country. It is also one of the coldest, giving me a new appreciation for blankets, fuzzy socks, and hot chocolate. I must admit I love studying all bundled up, there is no warmth or sunshine to tempt me from leaving my textbooks. Not to mention, all of the students bond together when temperatures hit -50 degrees Fahrenheit. All are aspects making my school unique. If I had to make the decision over again, I would make the same choice. It is close enough to home, while also giving me the space I need to become independent and it provides me a decent education while ensuring I do not go into debt.

Overall Experience: U.A.F. is a culture in itself. From the people to the food to the crazy experiences that cultivate school spirit...it's truly unique. Being a non-traditional student, I loved the flexibility U.A.F. had to offer.

Overall Experience: I attend a good school, nothing spectacular though

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The environment at first seems really disconnected, but the key is to get involved in clubs. It opens a whole new environment which allows you to make friends much easier.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Online classes could be better formatted.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The community is wonderful! It get's a little cold, but that's what makes it fun. We have cool clubs such as the -40, and -50 degree clubs. There are so many different activities offered for students through the Student Activities office and Res Life. The dorms could definitely use an update. But overall, the professors and students are friendly, which makes it a wonderful experience at UAF.

Off-Campus Housing: I have no experience with off-campus housing. The only off campus housing I stayed at was Billie's Backpacker hostel and I had a good experience with them. The people at the hostel were helpful.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I am not one to party. I also have not been here long enough to know.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I have a limited experience when it comes to off-campus cuisine; this is mainly due to the fact that I do not want to spend a lot of money. I did get the chance to visit a small Thai restaurant and I enjoyed the food that was available there. I noticed that there is at least one Japanese place. I also saw a pamphlet for Chinese food. I am disappointed that I have not located an Indian restaurant. There is also pizza and some local micro-breweries.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I have not had a problem with the campus being too strict. As of this survey, I have not been here a week.

Scholarships: The financial aid process is necessary. I was able to get financial aid and I don't think I needed to go into the financial aid office. I did go to the office to reply to an email but I could have simply replied by email. However, I was able to get some scholarship opportunities by going into the financial aid office.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: So far, the food that I have had on campus is very good. However, I do not like that I cannot get a meal plan through financial aid for the summers.

Campus Housing: The University of Alaska Fairbanks has good housing for the summer. There is not much going on in the summer so it is quiet and good for studying. The dorm hall has a lounge area which includes a pool table, a tv, and couches. The dorm hall has been kept clean and when I first arrived my area was clean.

Administration: I have never had a problem to need to contact the police on campus

Off-Campus Housing: The creepiest off campus housing is dry cabins. They're the best available housing for the price in fairbanks.
