  • This museum is filled with incredible art and artifacts. A multimedia approach is used to tell the history, culture, and natural history of this great state.  more »
  • Nice new campus, to much to see. Disappoint by the Art Museum, no real art, just artifacts. Understand they recently had major financial cutbacks  more »

  • I went to UAF for both undergraduate and graduate studies. Ultimately I graduated with my MBA in 2011. I am proud of UAF and my education and proud to call Fairbanks home. You get more out when you put more in!
  • Not very amazing. The campus is built on a hill, so getting around is pretty grating, and everything is spaced out so dully. It's a bit of a pain to get everything set up, seeing as how you have to use not one--not two--not even three--but essentially four websites to get up and moving at this university. Fees are handled as a joke, too. For example: You didn't fill out some seminar that you might have, just possibly could have gotten a spam email about? Gotta pay $100 or you'll be dropped from all your classes with nothing but a day's notice. Tough luck, right? Don't even get me started on the controversies surrounding this place recently. Title IX is NOT held up here, and serious sexual assault issues never get properly resolved. Being completely honest, it's not very safe here. Despite the shortcomings, the overall atmosphere of UAF can be soothe at times, whenever you decide to sit down somewhere between classes, but as far as universities go, you're better off elsewhere. I'd suggest you absolutely use the Study Abroad support this place has if you get roped into being a student here.
  • They have a great Emergency Management Program and I love how involved the professors are with their students. They really want you to do well. The cost is reasonable. I have to take extra classes to graduate (as a transfer student) but no regrets here. Also, there is great scholarship opportunities here.
  • A fine university in a great city. Love their natural history museum as well as the larger city of Fairbanks.
  • They have a really nice and well maintained ski track. Awesomeness.
