  • Wonderful views from the university grounds and the buildings are so uniquely done. The museum is filled with interesting displays for enjoyable time for everyone.  more »
  • They have some projects going on for Raindeers. They have got few of them. It is nice to visit this place.  more »
  • I stopped here for a picture in front of the temperature sign. It was too warm at 65 degrees. The REAL FUN is in the winter in 45-50 BELOW ZERO temps in nothing but skimpy clothing.  more »

  • Some of these bad reviews were written by people with no comprehension of facts or reality, or an axe to grind, or who have obviously never set foot on the campus. Is it for everybody? No. But that’s what makes it great. The best university in Alaska by a long shot.
  • Good for the right programs, I guess. If engineering or the natural sciences are your jam, you might try this university, because that's where the money and attention are going. Excellent French program and some good art courses, but some of the programs feel weak or neglected, and overall the classes are extremely hit or miss. I've taken some truly underwhelming courses here and am looking forward to finishing my degree (not in engineering or natural sciences) someplace else. All that said, it's generally a friendly campus that attracts an interesting mix of people. While many of the older buildings are ugly, the campus itself can be really pretty, and the shuttle between the parking lots, upper campus, and lower campus is a welcome support in the cold dark of winter.
  • Great campus. Has a lot of cool trails behind the dorms. The woods center has some pretty good food to.
