4 College Freshman

Administration: The people here are all really nice.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: As long as a person is on top of their scholarships they need to apply to, everything goes ok. State scholarships are already taken care of through the school. No hassle, just keep your grades up.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: There is actually quite a lot of variation. They add new things all the time. The breakfast omelettes are my favorite.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is actually a pretty great experience. You get to live around lots of new people and there are always programs going on that anyone could join in and do things. Depending on the dorm though, sometimes you feel like you live in a broom closet, but there and many other spacious places to study and hang out at.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I just went in and got what I needed done

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Not the best, not the worst

College Junior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have not lived off campus other than living with my parents, but I have friends that live in apartments off campus. From what I've heard, it is extremely difficult to find a place off campus and it can be expensive. The idea of moving off campus scares me a bit, honestly. The apartment my friends rent is surprisingly nice. It isn't particularly close to campus, nor far away, but it is quite expensive.

Off-Campus Dining: I have lived in Fairbanks for the last four years, as I went to high school up here. There is a lot of variety. Personally, I am partial to Asian foods and there are many of those up here. There is Japanese, Chinese, Korean, and even Thai. There is a Greek place, a few Italian places, a Mexican restaurant, and even a falafel/gyro place. The cost is average for what you find in Alaska. These places are convenient enough, I think. I have never before seen a student discount.

3 College Freshman

Administration: This campus tends to be strict at the most random of times. Visitors in the dorms is fairly strict (reasonable), there seems to be not much alcohol/drug use in Skarland, if any, and I know that officials here would enforce the rules regarding these substances. Moore seems to be flooded with these substances, so I very much doubt that their officials enforce these rules much, if at all. If you have a visitor over before the desk attendant is present, then you must bring them down at seven to be signed in. DA's can be extremely strict with this rule, issuing people a trespass for coming down ten minutes late, but even this isn't such a bad thing. One rule that is flat out ignored is the smoking policy on campus, which states that people cannot smoke within 50 feet of buildings, yet there are always people hanging right outside the entryway smoking. Thankfully, starting next fall the campus will be smoke-free.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I do not "party", or affiliate with people who do. I wouldn't know how the party scene is at UAF or where they occur. I have heard many stories about parties from people though, some first-hand accounts. I hear that there are many "parties" in Moore, although I don't think a group of idiotic underage teenagers getting together to do marijuana, harder drugs like mushrooms and ecstasy (Molly), or drink until the point of alcohol poisoning constitutes as a party. I have heard many shocking stories involving all these illegal substances and UAF freshman. There have been multiple 911 calls and ambulances that have to come pick up alcohol poisoned, incapacitated teenagers more than once. Furthermore, I am shocked that it keeps happening and apparently there are no consequences for people that continue to do these things.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I have the highest tier of Alaska Performance Scholarship (approx. $4,000) and a four year Elks Legacy scholarship ($1000/year). These scholarships take care of less than half of the amount I need in an average semester, and the rest I must pay for myself with my own money (not from my parents). I have applied for other UA scholarships to no avail, despite being a 4.0 student who is also a semester ahead of her peers. Overall, it is upsetting that I'm paying $5,000 out of my pocket every semester while other students who are not as determined as I am have more financial support. But I suppose it could be worse, since UAF is cheap overall.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Dining options on campus are not bad at all. I think many people exaggerate how "bad" it is because it gives them something to complain about. That being said, I don't think the food on campus is overly spectacular, but it has variety and provides some healthy alternatives (salad bar) and isn't as expensive as it could potentially be.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I really like my living arrangements as they are now. Skarland is nice, clean, and friendly. Moore is absolutely terrible when comparing cleanliness, enforcement of rules, and general atmosphere. As I do not live in Moore, I don't personally mind what goes on over there. But I will say that there is an astounding amount of drug and alcohol abuse by underage people specifically in Moore, and I'm glad that this is not the case in Skarland. Next semester I am living in Bartlett, and I can only hope that it is not as bad as Moore and accept the fact that it will not be as nice as Skarland.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There aren't many options for cheap college students.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's is a lot of great thai food.
