  • The dorms always have activities going on for students. There is a store located in the entry way, so feel free to wear your pajamas when picking up late night…

    The food was delicious and always provided great variety. There was never a dull moment during meals and snacks. The dining facility was always clean and organized as well.

    The University has a dining hall, as well as a separate dining building. There is a Taco Bell and Subway on campus. There is a Pub on the campus that serves typical pub food as well.

    The food provided is generally decent and available. The best part is that there are many different food places right by UAF, so if you don't like the food they have there, it's just a brisk walk away from other types of cuisine.

    There are a few good options, but everything is priced pretty highly. If you live in the dorms (which is required) then you are required also to get a meal plan at the Lola Tilly, the butt of many a fine dining joke. It's certainly not worth the money, but it balances out with the low cost of tuition.

    Really nice dining hall they call Tilly's and it was a great variety and is vegan/vegetarian friendly.

    The food has good and bad days. There's always a salad and pasta bar which are good but the entrees change each day. Some are really excellent while others are bland and disappointing. There are plenty of others dining options that are not in the cafeteria that provide delicious food though.

    The Tilly has really good food at the start of the semester when the new students and their parents are checking out the UAF. The Wood Center has a varied selection including Taco Bell, pizza, burgers, and even sushi. There's also a Subway which is really good. The water is really bad. A filter system of some kind is recommended.

    The food has increased a great deal over time; there is a salad bar, a specialty bar, pasta table, a grill, and a fruits bar. They are very diverse in their food, and it is in a buffet style dining.

    There is food here, but not like mama made it. You've got to watch out in the winter, because if you aren't careful, you'll react to the darkness by eating.

    Poor at best. There are two fraternities and one sorority: Alpha Phi Omega, Sigma Phi Epsilon, and Sigma Sigma Sigma. APO is by far the most popular, with a legitimate membership count (~40). It's a coed service fraternity, and is generally respected. Sigma Phi Epsilon has hit some hard times. Two years ago they had 1 member left (who was paying thousands in order to keep the chapter open). Now they've bounced back, with something like 15 members. I was a member of this fraternity, it's not worth the dues and I left. The current President's claims that they have pledges lines up this coming semester are... dubious. Sigma Sigma Sigma had 5 members last time I checked, and are having a very hard time getting new members and paying their national dues. I expect them to fall apart completely, but they've managed to stick around for at least this long.

    I have recently joined the fraternity Alpha Phi Omega which is a co-ed service fraternity. The members are all really welcoming and are really involved in the school and community.

    We have three Greek organizations on campus, a co-fraternity, a fraternity, and a sorority. The co-fraternity is the biggest and the most popular. It's mainly about community service, and doing whatever they can for the students.
