Colleges in Alaska

Alaska is the north-most US state with temperatures varying from “arctic” to “mid-latitude oceanic” depending on the region. The colleges in Alaska are divided between 2-year and 4-year institutions, with the largest university in the The Last Frontier being the University of Alaska Anchorage. Popular industries in Alaska are oil and gas, which support nearly 80% of state revenue. While Alaska does have a high cost of living, it’s the only place in North America where the Aurora Borealis is visible from mid-September to mid-April.
