Degree: Elementary Education and Teaching
Graduation Year: 2019

Some of the class arrangements take a bit of effort, due to being seasonal classes. However, the advisers are very helpful in planning and can tell you what kind of time and effort are involved in the ED classes. They're also helpful for arranging practicum with easy-to-access elementary schools for students who lack personal transportation.

Worst administrators ever. Academically school is decent, but most everyone in administration and student services is downright incompetent and hostile to students.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2004

The fisheries campus is Juneau was great becasue there are no undergrads and the class sizes are very small. There is a lot of interaction between government agencies and the school, which is how I I got my job after school. I highly recommend the school if you can stand some gray, rainy weather. You do not have to pay for classes and you get a stipend to live on since you are working on a research project that is funded.

Degree: Other Engineering
Graduation Year: 2012

I am thankful to the founders for their efforts in creating this program. The Rural Development Department is truly a shining gem at UAF. The professors in the Rural Development degree program have patiently guided and nurtured me through the years, out of the fog and into clarity of mind. The program content and the instructors bring students through understanding a historical context to current issues affecting the lives of all Alaskans, Alaska Native people, and other Indigenous Peoples throughout the world. I’ve been given practical tools to examine my world, and address issues in providing service delivery in Rural Alaska. I’ve gained a new perspective in learning about my true history as an Alaska Native person. This clarity is now allowing me to make informed decisions and plans as an individual, as a community member, and in my job with Kawerak.

Degree: Liberal Arts and Sciences, General Studies and Humanities, Other
Graduation Year: 2015

With the exception of a few bad apples, the professors and instructor here are some of the best and most loved I have ever seen. Most students form a bond with their professors that is built off of mutual respect and a genuine interest in learning and improving the performance of the students and the professors alike. That is not to say the classes here are all easy (I am only a CLA student so by nature my classes are easier), but they are worth it. However, that being said the administration and bureaucracy here is hellish. Especially within the bigger departments that don't actually have to do with student education. The dorms are bug infested so I would recommend living in a cabin if you can deal without plumbing. It seems here that there is a great sense of community, and especially a great sense of community outrage at seemingly uncaring attitude of parts of the University. Although as I have always been one to distrust, perhaps unfairly, those above me, I may be a bit biased. Overall I am glad at my choice of University and if UAF offered a grad program that I was interested I would not hesitate to apply. UAF is not perfect, but it has the right elements one needs to get a full, well rounded education with just enough resentment that it propels you through your degree program without too much hesitation.
