What is your overall opinion of this school?

This university is truly terrible. Please, do not attend this university. Facility members of all sorts are sexually assaulting students, and when reported to the on campus police department, cops pat you on the back, sweep it under the rug and tell you to learn something. There's at least one suicide ON CAMPUS annually. The university use to be so involved with arts, being proud of their arts, now suddenly cutting it completely out basically for their "research", when none of the students have even been told what research. Just as of 2018-2019 a student fell from the 8th floor dorm window after being on drugs. And no one was held accountable, not even other students. Another student was raped by her RA and it resulted in her becoming pregnant. A young man named Ross jumped from the top of a popular campus building with a note literally stapled to his chest, right before the 2018 Fall semester was supposed to begin. Professors make the classes seem simple and ready to jump in the first two weeks, but after the withdrawal deadline they suddenly pull the rug and make the content 100% more difficult, impossible even. Students are not happy on this campus, not unless they're a favorite or were born in Fairbanks. The university will also try to give unreasonable fines and won't tell students why they are being fined. When first attending, I thought this was normal. I thought "wow this is the real world guess I better buck up". But after leaving and attending other universes and speaking with other professors about the experience, they were even mortified. Please, do not waste your time and money on this poor education system. And don't risk your safety.

I love being a student at this college. Everyone is so friendly! The online classes are awesome and I haven’t had one professor that I didn’t like. They are always willing to help. The online classes are very well put together and easy to access. I love being an online student.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In my opinion, UAF is a good school to attend. I have had zero issues with students or staff. Hockey is a big deal up here though and I'm not a huge hockey fan. A car is recommended because the shops are not really in walking distance unless you really enjoy walking and remember to bundle up!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Alaska Fairbanks offers a unique experience for its student body. The extracurricular activities and clubs are interesting and exciting. The class sizes are smaller and more personal, allowing students to get to know the professor. The faculty are knowledgeable and always willing to help.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Personally, I would say avoid the school overall. UAA is way better than the piece of trash UAF has to offer. TA's rarely show during their hours, professors think 60% as a class average is really great, the people here are just arrogant. UAF is just the flagship, nothing else is special, its cold, filled with hate, and the campus is in a really dumb spot. Only good think about it is instate institution is fairly cheap(however, the fees are insane. $42 for a student government fee, I never seen the student government ever(and I've tried!)

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am blessed to be accepted into the University of Alaska Fairbanks system. I have been enrolled in their Cohort Models of social work studies since 2012. I got my Rural (Alaska) Humans Services Certificate in 2016 and my Associates of Applied Social Sciences in 2018. I am currently in pursuit of my Bachelor in Social Work since fall of 2018. Overall, these Cohort Models in Social Work studies have been excellently delivered. We got the most intelligent and caring instructors, advisors and the logistics they have completed for every intensive week has been extremely productive. My personal and professional growth has advanced superbly. Thank you UAF!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Its a pretty nice school. I have friends in multiple departments so I get lots of feed back every day. I love the atmosphere. Very warm and open. Love the family vibe. One thing that is nice about this school is that we make a great effort to make exchange students , or out of state students feel welcome. It really is a safe and friendly place. If not a little cold weather wise but hey, that's Alaska for you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Alaska Fairbanks give a unique experience of living in a state outside of the typical United States. If you want to enjoy the journey of the great outdoors, visit with reindeer, have a winter of snow and cold, this is the place for you. The academic environment was stimulating and challenging to the standards expected of a university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that the University of Alaska in Fairbanks has a very diverse group of people and gives all the students new opportunities. The advisors, instructors, and workers are very understanding of anyone's issue, thus making it one of their priorities to make sure we have all we need to excel. So I think that I enjoy being here, because it gives me all the tools, academic and social, alike to better my future.
