I would have to say the people. No one really judges other people. We have really diverse weather so your out fit can very alot and no one willl blink an eye if you look horrible. Its all about dressing for the weather versus dressing to impress.


The University of Alaska Fairbanks is a Land, Sea, and Space Grant Institution. We draw researchers from around the world to our Supercomputing Center, International Arctic Research Center, Institute of Northern Engineering, and Geophysical Institute. Forty-two percent of the class of 2013 completed a research, thesis or honors project as part of their bachelor's degree. The Alaska State Constitution was signed on campus, almost twenty percent of the student body are Alaska Native, and our rifle team is a 10-time NCAA champion. But what really stands out: we still go to class when it's 40 below.

we get tempatures as low as 50 below zero, and we have intramural a sport called Broomball


The unique thing about our campus is also the location. Not many people could imagine going to school in Alaska, especially those from out of state. It has definitely been an experience- climbing a mountain, white water rafting, seeing a moose on campus, etc.
