  • I went to the university to visit the Alaska Earthquake Information Center in the Geophysical Institute building, and then visited the Museum of the North. Staff was all very cordial and helpful. The ...  more »
  • The university museum was excellent place to learn more about Alaska - the place, people and history. It is worth the trip and at least a half day to enjoy most of the exhibits. 
  • We had to stop and get the customary picture of the temperature sign. Unfortunately it wasn't 40 below, but it is for the memories.

  • DO NOT APPLY. I applied to this school because my 2nd choice of major was at UAF and I am from this state. Also I didn't get accepted into my other choices of school. Instead I come to find out that this school was a waste of my time. My academic advisor was not helpful and most of all unprofessional. She did not seem she liked her job and did not want to help me at all. All I did was ask questions and she made it seem like I was stupid when in reality I am not. This school sounds like they do not care about NO ONE'S academic endeavors, and all they want is money. I do not feel proud to call myself a Nanook. I am planning on not to attend this school. For anyone who wants to go here do NOT apply. Even if it's your last chance to do so. DO NOT APPLY HERE.
  • UAF is my hometown university. I went to West Valley high school just down the road, and I never once thought that my time at UAF would be how it is.I absolutely love it! It's college, so you are in charge of yourself. If funding, advising, etc isn't simple, you have to work hard and continuously work to get it. I love my degree program (Wildlife Biology), and think it is very strong. I also got an amazing student job at Outdoor Adventures, leading people into Alaska's wilderness rafting, hiking, ice climbing, and more while getting paid! On top of that, I really enjoy our gym and recreation, and have played intramural hockey almost every year. I'm proud to be a Nanook. I have omitted 1 star because of small faculty issues I have faced, and the fact that I have not attended another university to compare to UAF.
  • I 100% regret going to UAF. It's a rather soul-crushing institution, completely and utterly obsessed with administration and politics. Recently they fired one of their more passionate and well-respected professors for reporting harassment of female students to the police. If you value your education, and your dignity, pick a different school.
  • It's all about learning
  • All the people are so kind. I love this campus.
