Most Helpful Review for University of Alaska Fairbanks

Although all of the classes i have taken at UAF ( engineering based as well as a few rec) have been very enlightening and I personally feel you get the level of teaching you sign up for- 100, 200 level classes- I have heard from more than one east coast person that they don't feel challenged enough.

    Very community bound. Fantastic facilities to grow and learn. Lots of winter activities such as ice climbing, sledding, and a terrain park on campus for skiing and snowboarding.

    I would rate the UAF as a 6.My first couple semesters have been very difficult base on the teachers I have had and the weather in Alaska. Moth of the teachers you get the first year are all grad students.

    UAF is a great school for people that are not afraid of the cold. The school of management is great as well as the hard sciences. The campus is small and so is Fairbanks.

    UAF is one of the beautiful campuses I have ever seen, has some of the nicest and most helpful people, and truly assists students in achieving their goals. I rate UAF a 5/5 as it has a wonderful system, great relationships, and great programs for the students. There is so much opportunity given to each student who attends.

    The professors and staff at UAF have always gone above and beyond when I have needed it. The atmosphere is inviting and there are always activities on campus for students, academic and extracurricular. Plus, the campus is beautiful and offers many sights that are only in Alaska.

    The University of Alaska Fairbanks is a great opportunity to help extend and further prior education to college. The professors at UAF are genuinely friendly, and since most classes up at UAF aren't as large as other Universities, there is alot more one on one with the professor. Not only are the academics decent, but the campus has lots of running and skiing opportunities nearby.

    This university is not your friend, it is a business. They will squeeze every penny they can from you with a smile. Tuition is pretty low anyway, though.

    It is i really good school with a good curriculum. It is really oddly set up but after a little but it is navigable and it is oddly on a hill as well so make sure to have good reliable shoes, none of that heel nonsense. There are maps everywhere though.

    UAF is a wonderful school that creates a familial sense throughout it. It's a comfortable school to thrive with small to medium sized classrooms and plenty of opportunities to meet new people. I would highly recommend UAF to any student searching for a college.
