3 College Junior

Academics: There have been some faculty changes since I started in the department and one of those changes was the departure of a professor who I had looked to as something of a mentor in certain areas. Thus, my rating is a bit lower than it might have been.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: I love my courses on campus, I definitely am considering applying for a job to meet new people around.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I can't really complain. UAF does an okay job at being on their A-game.

4 College Student

Academics: They offer a lot of help 7 days of the week.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: The workload is very doable if you're motivated and willing to do the work, especially if you want to succeed in your area of study. I wouldn't say it's overbearing but there is a lot to do, but I think it's just like any other university.
